Transform is a peek into the fantastic imagination of an editorial makeup artist. With a single model as her palette for these sixty stunning looks, Toni Malt works utter magic. While she details her inspiration and application process and reveals the encyclopedic product knowledge that goes into creating each winning character, the spellbinding photos are the real proof of her mastery of color, technique, and balance. Making use of such accessories as stencils, Swarovski crystals, temporary tattoos, and glitter and employing tools sourced from the arts and crafts shop or hardware store instead of just the makeupcounter, Malt’s looks range among soft and ethereal, impossibly chic, flamboyantly colorful, and trulyotherworldly. Whether the focus is on the eyes, lips, or entire face, these makeup transformations are anything but ordinary.
Toni Malt is a makeup artist based in Dubai, where she runs her own makeup academy. Her creative work has been published in top international fashion magazines including Vogue, Elle, L’Officiel, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Grazia, Cosmopolitan, and Rolling Stone. Born and raised in Germany, Toni has lived in both London and New York and traveled extensively throughout her career, which spans over a decade.
Beginning in January 2018, makeup enthusiasts can take courses at Toni Malt’s state-of-the-art, custom- built studio in the heart of Dubai. Courses are an extension of Transform and range from one-week master classes on makeup techniques, building an image portfolio with photographers for Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, and developing the artistic eye, all the way to a complete six-week course ending with a diploma in editorial makeup.
