AVENUE Presents MIRAGE by Face Paint
“Everything you can imagine is real.” ― Pablo Picasso
When fashion meets art, imagination holds no bounds.
Journey into the unchartered, and delve deep into the imagination of Face Paint’s Eve Express, who takes her makeup designs to a whole new artistic level. Having been a painter in real life for 34 years using oils, acrylics, watercolor and mixed media, Eve Express combines her real life artistry to produce her first collection of body makeup.
AVENUE presents and produces a unique experiential exhibition showcasing Face Paint’s first collection of body makeup, aptly named “MIRAGE”. The concept was initiated by AVENUE CEO | Creative Director, Rusch Raymaker, and much to the delight of Eve Express, a collaboration was born that also enlists the creative talents of Honey Bender of Faster Pussycat, who translates the designs and installations with creative choreography. The production is supported by the talented production team and models of AVENUE Models.

Eve Express of Face Paint first joined Second Life with an interest to explore art and design in a virtual 3D environment. She arrived armed with over 34 years of real life experience as a painter using oils, acrylics, watercolor and mixed media. Her first store was Body by Eve, and Face Paint was born later because she found a freedom of design with makeup that skins did not provide. Makeup allowed her to “break the template” to a certain extent, and the skin became her canvas. Her designs have been praised for their quality and beauty. Express loves creating beautiful things with color, and the introduction of layers has allowed her to take her exploration further.
Honey Bender has been in Second Life since 2006. She started modeling professionally with Aspire Agency in 2006 and has worked as a fashion model continuously since then. In 2006, she started designing clothes collections under her own labels, Faster Pussycat and Velvet Elvis. Today she is also a renowned Second Life burlesque performer.
