18-year-old makeup mogul creates inclusive beauty brand: ‘Makeup is a movement’

Get to know the innovative beauty brands redefining what it means to be part of the beauty industry and the fearless leaders behind them on In The Know’s video series “Beauty Rebels.”

Zach Dishinger is on a mission to challenge traditional and enduring gender norms. A “typical theater kid,” the teenager always found solace in beauty products — and so, at just 15 years old, he decided to turn his passion for makeup into a full-fledged business.

“When I started, there was no boys beauty. It was all female-based,” Dishinger told In The Know. “Girls are beauty and I wanted to change that. I wanted to make sure that everyone feels like they have a place in the beauty world.”

Three years later, Dishinger’s company — Formula Z Cosmetics — is a disruptor in the beauty industry. And with his company, Dishinger is doing what he always dreamed of: empowering others to unapologetically embrace their true selves.

“I want everyone to feel like they have a place in the beauty industry and that’s really where the actual core of Formula Z came about,” Dishinger explained.

Right now, Formula Z is largely focused on long-lasting lip colors and balms, all of which are vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free and gluten-free. In the future, Dishinger hopes that Formula Z will be available both online and in stores so that customers of all walks of life have easier access to the products.

“My hope for the future is that it can be accessible for everyone — online, in stores — so that everyone has an opportunity to get their hands on Formula Z,” the 18-year-old entrepreneur said. “We believe that makeup is a movement and that it can be worn unapologetically for everyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation or gender.”

Transitional interiors have the best of both worlds: traditional and contemporary.Staying within the familiar realm of tradition but making it perky with fresh new ideas. Traditional architecture and designs carry a beautiful appeal and when freshened up they stand out as even more classic. An updated historic home carries its character yet the contemporary furnishings give it a modern edge.

Taking inspiration from the past, it’s really about the antique architectural design, the veranda arches and vintage doors with beautiful carved authentic detail. Hand crafted in dark woods the patina plays perfectly with neutral walls where you can display contemporary art. Pale blue carved armoires, green floral wardrobe cabinets, muted red chests seep colors into the interiors. Bring tone-on-tone furniture and furnishings like the oxidized wood accent cabinets or the aged white console, playing down the dramatic angle.

Burnished brass with soft, warm undertones accents the wood patinas of the cabinets. A huge floor mirror made from an old architectural door frame gives a focal point to the living room.Crystal chandeliers complement traditional elegance nicely.Symmetry is essential to keep the room balanced and in harmony. The huge TV screen is balanced with 2 arches on either side that have been converted into bookshelves. Damask fabric on the sofa adds punch without making it too contemporary. Extravagant silhouettes, traditional weave fabrics and embellished textiles draw attention to the walls. Carved wall panels of the Tree of Life accented by simple straight drapes that just skim the floor, clean and neat lines, too much fabric gives an untidy effect.

Globally inspired carvings and sculptures collected by you on your travels are displayed on the walls with accent lighting that focuses on their unique artistic detail. Broad leaf ferns and green foliage play beautifully with the dark patina wood and the neutral walls.The vintage whitewashed screen with iron work adds interest to the simply furnished living room.
