If fashion is fixated on contrasts, then light and dark are a yin and yang oft revisited. De la Lumiere a L’Ombre by Lorent K and Oanell is a beauty shoot about the light that exists in shadow, and the shadow that exists in light. The brilliant makeup by Stephanie Jacquet features two contrasting looks: sparkling ice-queen skin and crystal-dotted eyes, and gritty dark skin with burgundy lips and onyx nails. Both seem to channel the minerals of the earth, sparkling diamonds and dark crystals.
And therein lies plenty of beauty inspiration, though you may not be looking to go all out in such creative manner, the dot of a crystal or shimmer of glitter makes for a stand-out beauty look. Just ask the creatives responsible for this bedazzled look at Dior or the glitter eyes at Chanel.
Quentin Guyen gave model Claudia Dolez white and dark hair respectively to match the beauty looks. You can view the full shoot by Lorent K (kostarprod.com) and Oanell (monsieurimageetmadameconcept.tumblr.com) by clicking on the gallery.
