Despite its name, Beauty Papers is no arena for step-by-step lessons on contouring or how to triple-line your eyes. Rather, the title examining beauty collaborates with makeup artists, fashion photographers and hairstylists to create hefty volumes that encourage readers to unlearn, forget, and discover.


At a time when it seems that small minds are in charge — often at the expense of creativity, inclusivity and, indeed, humanity — this new issue celebrates ‘big’ in all its myriad forms: talent, fame, expression, age, honour, gender and conscience.


You will receive one of seven covers selected at random


In this issue:


  • The big art of conversation is explored with makeup artist Topolino, milliner Stephen Jones, hair supremo Eugene Souleiman and celebrated artist Gillian Wearing
  • Yet another side of the multi-faceted Kate Moss, shot through the lens of Lisa Butler
  • David Sims collaborates with makeup artist Lucia Pieroni, resulting in a fantastical beauty bacchanal
  • The idiosyncratic visions of Julie Verhoeven, as photographed by Annie Collinge
  • Arresting portraits by street photographer Bruce Gilden on the sidewalks of New York
  • Hollywood: Star Wars’ Gwendoline Christie shot by film director and fashion photographer Sean Ellis
  • BAFTA award-winning film makeup artist Morag Ross reveals the true beauty of age
