Skins Cosmetics had a good idea: placing a small selection of their superb collection in the spotlight for mothers day. And then it got even better: I was asked to make illustrations for these products.
My first step was trying to come up with a theme in which different stories around the beauty products and about mothers could be visualized.
I came up with three different themes:
- creating memories
- home safe home
- Natural Beauty.
This was a proposal for the theme ‘home safe home’.
The theme ‘creating memories’ was chosen: creating small traditions, traveling together, sharing the same stories en memories (often resulting in different stories) is what intrigues me a lot about familylife.
Creating memories also offered a lot of opportunities to work with different products sold by Skins Cosmetics. Like Royal Princess Oud by Creed. Never heard about ‘oud’ but I was schooled by the Skins Team about all the products and their magical ingredients.
A personal favorite of mine: ‘starting the day together’. The mornings in our family. Everybody preparing for the day, fresh, full of plans and ideas, And then there is this ‘lait frais’ by diptique. Magnifique. For your (mine :-)) morning skin.
An other bonus for me was the way the illustrations were used by Skins Cosmetics: stickers for the shopping windows,
shop placements, little gift tags, wishlist booklets, shopping lists and a set of postcards.
