Lipstick Vortex Plate

‘Decisions, Decisions’ a Lipstick Vortex.

The plate of lipsticks is a result of wanting to record lipsticks, both vintage and contemporary. Over the past 4 years I have dedicated a lot of time into researching lipsticks as I feel that they are not only glamorous, but also essential tools of female empowerment and the keys to old memories.
