Girl with a Fan
CW Studio #2/5
Model: Louise
Make-up: Semra Muhtar

Accessories! One of the joys of working with a make-up artist is they think beyond just the lighting and technical aspect of the shoot. Maybe with more experience I'll get the hang of it... or maybe should just leave it to experts.

The folding fan, lipstick and earrings just pop in this. Great job from Lou... I love the "I-couldn't-possibly-do-anything-wrong.." expression.

You have no reason to leave it to the experts. You are good at it and you have a great team. Keep going :)

Lovely comment.. Thanks Anker.
i agree with anker. you've done a wonderful job. the last one has for me to less colours, but this one has more. and it is good so.

the fan goes well and brings beautiful color in the background

Good comments Sebastian. I like the splashes of colour too. Thank you!

Love it! Everything here is in its own place - nothing is more! The vibrant colors adds a lot. But what makes it magnificent is the Lou's look! It's saying so much! :D
Hugs! Keep going! :***)
and of course the clours of the eyes comes better. ;)

beautiful eyes - check.

skin that looks like skin - check

matchy-match with fan, earrings, lipstick, blush - check

[I think your makeup artist knows her job - these all suit Louise]

The shading on her nose looks slightly off. Very nice otherwise.

Mramshaw. That's the most detailed analysis I've ever received! Much appreciation your efforts. Always love the constructive criticism as it pushes you to try harder. Thank you very much.

The colour, the light, the expression of beauty, all is fantastic,

Mark, thanks for taking my comments as intended.

The makeup on her nose has not re-shaped it, maybe some burning?

As you're going the full fashion shoot, a little processing seems okay.

It's a beautiful picture, her jawline seems especially well done.
