Beauty heroines on set: lights, camera, action

Cosmetics and cinematic dramas make for the most breathtaking aftereffects when they are seemingly paired together, complementing moods, enhancing emotions, generating wonder. Atif AbuSamra’s beauty editorial sums up the best of both worlds, wrapping the set in an electrifying atmosphere. Models Albe Hamiti and Masha epitomize the beauty heroines in the photo shoot that borrows inspiration from M.A.C. Cosmetics’ Reel Sexy collection.

Make-up artist Vimi Joshi chose to work with vibrant color combinations, capturing the dramatic spirit of the collection in shades of bright plum, light coral and bold orange for the lips, alongside exciting fusions of green and turquoise for the eyes. Red nails and impressive lashes work closely with the powerful hairstyles created by Shin Shindesu in complementing the exquisite mood of the shoot.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
