All that glitters is not gold…

…although it could be something far better: Alexa and Anastasia, the retro beauties of the 21st century. The sparkling glitter that twinkles throughout this shoot is the creation and the application of a fictional story; a retro princess fantasy of glitter and light. Photographer Advan Matthew captures these girls both separately and together, an effective means of shedding light and emphasis onto the beautifully executed beauty looks.

Beauty editor, Tiara Puspita, creates a radiant perception of the female form with emphasis on the skin, lips and eyes. Giving a close-up detail of each model, with an air of distinct warmth and beauty. Fashion and jewelry in this shoot has a contemporary spin to it, and although the make-up is laiden in colour and glimmer, it too creates this overall affect of retro fashion. Matthews continues to create unusual shoots which appeal to the imaginative side of fashion.
