Scarab Spring: lustrous beauty painted in exotic colours

Viktorija Bowers and Michael David Adams manage to create an epic and quite astonishing portrayal of the delicacy and intricacy that can be found in detail. Bowers demonstrates a genuinely impressive display of artistic talent in her ability to combine colour and shine to create a truly beautiful and glamorous facial portrait.

The silken skin canvas of Rachel Clark provides the sensual scene for this colourful and molten makeup display to fall upon: dazzling golds and bright blues, sheer colour variation and the ability to make the colours simultaneously contrast and blend in with one another transforms this shoot from a simple makeup display to a cosmetic feast for the eyes.

Bowers is creative in both her use of colour and texture, opting for smooth lines, jagged edges and crumbling surfaces that all come together to create this staggeringly beautiful photo shoot. Clark manages to manifest a high emotive feeling around each portrait, while Adams captures each picture in perfect balance of skin and make-up feature. He creates focus and attention by perfectly adjusting the light and shadow around the model’s features, as well as her delicately applied makeup and nail art.
