We’re not sure which we fell in love with first—the lip gloss or the incredibly cool creator, Theo Kogan. Her passion for makeup and expression led her to create the fantastically pigmented lip gloss line, Armour Beauty. Her definition of beauty is inclusive, experimental and accessible.
One of the first people that come to mind when I think of the crossroads of art and beauty is Theo Kogan, CEO of the lip gloss empire Armour Beauty. Theo is a native New Yorker who studied art at the “Fame” school until her band The Lunachicks took off, establishing her firmly as a punk rock icon pretty much right from the tender start of her performance career. Theo was the first tattoo-sleeved “outsider” model, photographed by such greats as Testino, Avedon and Meisel. As an actor, Theo has been directed by Scorsese and Jane Campione… etc. etc. Let’s just say this lady is experienced.
I know firsthand about the ferocious spirit of this woman and cheered when she threw herself headlong into the world of makeup, both as a creator and artist.
