I know some people won't like this image because of the cigarette, but thought it added to the image as a great prop!
I spent over 3 hrs editing this image and accidentally flattened it upon saving before I could finish the processing, so I made it monochrome and overall happy with the result.

I like the smoking aspect of it. Great model I always love her eyebrows. I'd love to see the colour version she uses a great mua.

A really striking portrait - the eye contact draws you into the image and the mono conversion works perfectly.

Yeah I have put some on here as both model and mua. One today too. Make-up skills yesterday too. I found an oldish file from last year.
