Behind the mask...

I tried to do half-face make-up.. TRIEEEDDD T____T

Anyway, there is a concept behind this photo.

Make-up. As much as I love it, it's acts as such a mask for so many people, it covers everything and nowadays you're lucky if you see people leave their bedroom without putting it on! (People like me LOLOL >_>)
So the message is, don't be afraid to show yourself without make-up! Be happy with who you are, don't always hide behind a mask ;)

I almost never wear make-up. I'd say I wear it like four or five times a month. I'm a very busy person. I'm a photographer, an artist, a singer, a beader, a poet, and now a pianist since six weeks ago. :D You could say I'm busy....lol

I love the message you are portraying through this photograph. :)

Beautiful. You're right, people do tend to treat make-up as a mask.

I haven't realized that you 've got half make-up. And it's all because your beautifull eyes are like a magnet!

It looks truly beautiful. I love the concept... unfortunately, I'm one of those people who never leaves the house without putting make-up on. :ashamed:

i love this! such a great idea! :clap: although i think it's when people put TOO much on that makeup becomes a mask, i think for everyday a little bit is nice just to enhance your features..sometimes i think it looks sloppy when women go out to work with absolutely nothing on

can i ask do you even have foundation or concealer on the other half of your face? Cos if not then you have flawless skin naturally anyway.
