MAC makeup artist extraordinaire John Stapleton interviewed for FAULT Issue 14

The first thing you should know about John Stapleton is that he has spent time not only behind the camera but in front of it. After a background in fine art, John originally started off in the industry as a professional model. He applied the same principals of his formal artistic training to the fashion world. His approach to make-up, in particular, is simple in the fact that it’s all about the person with whom he is currently working. It might sound obvious but the critical aspect of make up artistry does not lie in any one technique or method, says John, but in approaching each client individually based on their needs.

Make-up, John says, is an art form with the human face as the canvas. The most important factor in that artistic process, however, is the personal interaction between the make up artist and his client(s).

FAULT had the pleasure of working with John and one of his personal clients, Kelly Osbourne, last Summer for FAULT Issue 12. We caught up with John again this year at Sundance Film Festival, prior to his numerous jobs at fashion weeks around the world.

FAULT: With such an incredible portfolio of work, with whom do you like working the most? 

John: I love working with all [my] clients.  Applying makeup is such a personal thing; you really get to know the person.  Seeing the “magic” that makeup can achieve and paying attention to each and every client and making that person (no matter who they are) feel great about themselves – whether it be a model, a celebrity or anyone else – is what it’s all about for me.

In The Blood: Exclusive shoot & Interview with ‘The Host’ star Max Irons for FAULT Issue 14

 With his quintessential British charm, rugged good looks and a Stephenie Meyer film adaptation in theatres—not to mention his illustrious family ties—Max Irons is on track to serious stardom.

Max Irons was shot by Mairi-Luise Tabbakh and styled by Kristine Kilty exclusively for FAULT Issue 14


FAULT: You’re a boarding school survivor— nerdy or naughty?

Max: Naughty – very naughty.  I got into a lot of trouble.

Who or what has been your greatest inspirations as an actor?

I don’t know if I can put a single name on it.  I mean, it changes one film at a time.  I guess the actors I’m very into at the moment are Ralph Fiennes, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti …The normal bunch of people.

Tell us a bit about your new film, The Host.

It’s science fiction; it’s based on a novel by Stephenie Meyer.  It’s the only thing she’s ever written outside of Twilight, so there aren’t any vampires.  In this case it’s a kind of a take on Body Snatchers.  I play a resistance fighter – one of the people whose souls haven’t been taken – fighting against the invasion.  It’s directed by Andrew Niccol.  People consider him to be at the forefront of sic-fi directors, so it was nice to have him on board for the film.
