The inspiration came from the idea of stripping away the superfluous. Celebrating the human form and skin.
Wood bark, leaves and plant matter are used together with beauty products to create a supernatural and minimalist approach to ‘makeup’.
I started out with only beauty products on the more stripped back shots, grooming the brows and perfecting the skin. Layering on aloe Vera and adding texture to it with a palette knife was next. I then added different elements of nature where ever I felt worked best with the formation of the face/body.
