Australian-born and London-based, Thomas de Kluyver is a self-taught make-up artist who honed his craft by experimenting with makeup on himself and his friends as a teenager, according to

In May 2019, Perth-raised Thomas was appointed Global Makeup Consultant for Gucci, coinciding with the re-launch of the brand’s colour cosmetics line.

 In this role, he collaborates directly with Gucci’s Chief Creative Officer Alessandro Michele to develop the Gucci Beauty product range, licensed by Coty, and bring his otherworldly visions to life.

Recently  the Italian fashion label presented Gucci Cosmogonie, the new collection by Alessandro, which was unveiled through a fashion show at Castel del Monte.

 The presentation included a series of distinctive beauty looks, created by Thomas, and inspired by the constellations seen on Castel del Monte during the show.

 Makeup looks captured backstage were glimmering and luminous, while unexpected details including glittery tears defined beauty on the runway.

To achieve the look, Thomas featured rosy cheekbones and bold red lips using Rouge à Lèvres Mat shade 25* Goldie Red, combined with Éclat De Beauté Effet Lumière.

Gucci Beauty’s multi-use gel gloss also characterised a series of glowing bare-faced looks.
