I love the colors and the way the light sculpts your face. This is just an awesome image. You take make-up to an art level. You not only enhance your beauty but you add so much that I just keep staring and finding new things. Do you have any process photos or videos?

This has always been one of my favorites from your gallery. It's just so different from everything else and it really stands out to me. I've told you before how much of an inspiration you are to me, so I thought I should let you know that I'll be doing makeup similar to this sort of as a tribute to you. =]

Really nice, really thought provoking.

The makeup and your expression, you look so mysterious, alien, lost, wary, and beautiful.

And the shadows from the blinds and your gaze give the impression of being inside carefully looking outside.

Not bad, not bad. I just said "happiness" is overrated. People genuinely strike the most idiotic faces while laughing, grinning, or attempting to "chill".

But sorrow (of the non-emo variety) has a certain majesty to it.

So speaketh the Hun. D;

wow this is really cool work..
i didnt think you could buy little clock work pieces so small and light enough to stick to your face!
ooh where do you get them?

despite the depression you look lovlier than ever..
sometimes we all need to be able to switch ourselves off.. i get tired of fussing all day everyday about my weight/body and what i put in it..
or whatever else floods the mind during the weeks...
i think its nice that through some sadness you can still create such beauty.
