Young people and those who market to them are all up on the latest terms. In the last 18 months or so they have been known to use the term “turnt up,” which can refer to states of extreme inebriation or more generally be used as a catchall superlative for anything and everything. Teen Vogue as ever keeps its ear to the wind and has an uncanny ability to make even the most adult themes PG-13. To wit, Teen Vogue has published a beauty feature in the May 2015 issue titled “Turn Up” by photographer Richard Burbridge featuring Avery Tharp. The grammatically correct turn up in this case refers to expressive makeup. “Girls should never stop having fun using makeup in new ways,” argues British makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench. To that end, Avery sports confetti stars and the like on her eyes along with loads of costume jewelry. Inspired, bonkers, call it what you like, but Avery Tharp, to use another contemporary expression, is also on fleek.
