Black Makeup for a B&W Photo

The photographer for this shoot wanted a smokey eye on our model. I decided to put a twist on the traditional smokey eye and create a more edgy look, with bold block lines. The black lips help to add further intensity to the shot. Cover your hands over them and imagine what it would look like, if her lips were pale (grey). See what I mean? The model has appealing lips, and the black lipstick attracts you (even more) to them. You almost want to hear what she is about to say.
