[Lens Based: Beauty in Media] Perfectly Painted, 9/16

My response to Mario Testino, progress towards and transitioning into my final piece. As Testino produces quirky, contemporary photoshoots presenting his expressionism towards makeup and how bold brush strokes and daring colours can speak for themselves, I painted on a heavy amount of makeup experimenting with his style of solid shades and thick lines to display my message. Beauty is no longer natural or unique, but consists of sitting in-front of a mirror for hours painting on copious amounts of unnecessary makeup to fit into the unattainable, clone category that is media’s ideal beauty.
