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.

would have prefered it to be upright not on the side, imo: it was difficult to see the face and as it is the first thing one sees is makeup followed by no makeup (top bottom). with upright face both eyes are able to see one each and is better that way! >< pretty tho as if makeup was something that could be half done

I did have it upright originally, but there was something that didn't look quite right with it.

Very beautiful! And great concept, I used to cake on the make-up and then one day I was just like "what the hell am I doing?!" And now I only ever really wear make-up out if I'm going to a special occasion type thing! :)

This is really amazing! I love how you did your make-up and it's true, people don't need make-up to look their best. It's okay to wear it sometimes, like special occasions, sometimes out on the town or for pictures, but honestly people don't need it 24/7. I used to be one of those people where I couldn't leave the house without make-up, but I've gone a year without it. I feel fine, and if people don't like what you look like without it, then oh well, they're jerks. I love this photo and your concept of it all. Very nice :D
