Avant Guarde Shoot

Hi Bellas,

I've been wanting to kick up my portfolio a notch so for today's look I went totally avant-guarde. This isn't really a look you'd wear out on the street. This is actually a look inspired by the infamous Snowkei. I wanted to emphasize the angles and planes of the models face and have the primary colors really jump out at you.
I began with airbrushing the model in an ivory foundation. I really wanted a pale look to her skin.

I also added White Cream Colour Base on top and set it with powder.

Now for the fun part.
We were going for face shots...shoulders up.

The model wore a tube top so I could bring the color down past her collar bone.

Touching up.

I'll post the professional shots as soon as I get them, stay tuned!
