This is a project that my wife and I had in mind already for a little while. Realize a good contrast between a naturally dark skin and some intense gold make-up was a nice challenge. The make-up was enriched by adding some extra gold lines on the model forehead. For this project, our model is a friend of ours, Cherrie, that has the skin complexion we were looking for accompanied by intense dark eyes. The make-up took about 30 minutes and Cherrie has some previous modeling experience making the photoshooting very smooth. The photos were taken in our dining room using a black background, one lens and one flash. Another example of an easy set up to achieve the desired photos. Imagination and a good team work paid off.
