War Paint project
The War Paint Project: something that is significantly instrumental in enabling an individual to feel comfortable with their sense of self. In collaboration with Illamasqua cosmetics, every model was provided with a range of makeup to apply on themselves in whatever manner they pleased, allowing them to become both model and creator of their photoshoot. In blurring the boundaries between the two tasks, all of the models were liberated from their typical routine and given the chance to visually express their personality and style before the lens. After the photoshoot, we had the privilege to catch up with all the models, and find out a little bit more about their personalities, interests, and their careers so far.
