The Sunkissed Geisha

By stuartsportraits  
Another of the shoot on sunday at colins (with a small c)

wanted a very direct gaze at the lens to show off those beautiful eyes of hers

Very little done to this apart form a few blemishes removed been told i can overwork sometimes (bad cubby)

once again thanks a lot for being a great and very patient model for me

make up is done by myself as well as the hair etc it is not digitally put on , wanted a geisha type look but a wee bit different and softer

comments and crit appreciated

thanks a lot zoe and john Smile zoe wanted a softer feel to it hence the sunkissed colours , i feel sometimes the geisha has been overworked and as usual i like to be different lol, its white make up (powder) on her face the sort that a lot of goths use

thanks for the comments and fav's Smile

This looks great too. I wasn't too sold on the nicotine coloured lippy to start, but I can see the bigger picture, so will forgive you if I thought it made her look like Fag-Ash Lil Wink
I need to break out of my box Smile
