Daniel Martin, a makeup artist based in New York CIty, is known for his light-handed approach when creating looks for his clients, including Jessica Alba, Elisabeth Moss, and Meghan Markle. He has collaborated with brands like Honest Beauty, Dior, and Tatcha, and created runway makeup looks for designers, including Tadashi Shoji.

“This time has really made me focus on understanding purpose in my life, and this project was an opportunity to merge creativity [with] purpose for humanity. If I wasn’t a makeup artist, I think I would be a designer. This is definitely my Project Runway challenge! I chose this shibori pattern in part because indigo [spiritually] represents devotion, justice, and dignity. The health care workers’ role carries the same ethos, and I want them to understand that they are appreciated and represented right now.”
