To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
What you’re about to witness might not even seem real. This is art taken to a whole different level.
” I get inspiration from my feelings, both emotional and physical. Since both of my parents worked day jobs, I had a lot of time to think on my own when I was young. Although everyone feels emotions, I was overly sensitive to mine, to an abnormal extent. So when I started painting at a young age, back when I used to paint on canvases and pieces of paper, the subject matter of my work was almost always about people and emotions. “
-Dain Yoon, in an interview with i-D.
Dain Yoon is a creator, an artist and a storyteller all put together in one. Something really important to know is that there is nothing else in these creations other than makeup. The first time I discovered her account I just couldn’t believe it. It just simply couldn’t be done without digital touch up, I thought. But boy, was I wrong. Yoon makes me feel things I didn’t even know one could feel.
She creates an entire universe through her optical illusions and I want to live there forever.

She started out as a pre-school teacher thinking she found her path but ended up expressing her most personal feelings through makeup.
Choi’s main inspiration comes from dealing with sleep paralysis since she was a child. During the paralysis she could see people with no faces, people chopped up, one person splitting into 10 and then coming back into one, she tells Garage Magazine.
It wasn’t until she started doing makeup she stopped living in constant fear. It has become her salvation and has helped dealing with the hallucinations. She calls it a blessing in disguise.
“Do not choose the path of least resistance — If you’re not pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone and if you don’t even try just because you’re afraid, you’re choosing a numb existence. We only live once — take risks, choose happiness, and create an extraordinary trip. You owe it to yourself” – Mimi Choi
