This red-to-primarily-pink ombre is to die for. Now I know it won’t be out on the street necessarily, nor in a boardroom, nor office meeting… If it was, at least, in the latter two settings, there would be either beauty experts, fashion professionals, or performers involved!
When I was young, the pouring over fashion publications was done specifically because of this kind of imagery – it’s artwork. It is its own kind of outrageous. It’s bright, uplifting in color, expertly applied – makeup artistry takes a whole other level of skill and creativity, and I always appreciated that.
For me, the combination of colors, textures and finishes was utterly captivating – I couldn’t say why, beyond that it appeals to my very-visual way of assimilating information. But I loved it, and loved photography – composition, light and shadow play….all of it.
So here is this image, just floating in the ether… But it’s one striking enough to stop me so I stare for a moment and think “now that is divine!”
From the bordered-spray-paint quality, to the patent-leather gloss…to the faded, ghosted edge, I absolutely LOVE this photo. 🙂
