Perspicacity for the revolutionary and refined

Scattered with a white dust of a futuristic design and lined with the notions of contemporary intention, photographer Snej Shan creates a secondary world of fashion with this designer collection from Kim Shui.

The epic and unusual use of make-up in this fashion shoot is a huge contributing factor to the perception created, with both models appearing as though they belong to another race… an alternate life form. Make-up artist, Beatrice Contino, uses the colours that seem to theme this shoot: black and white, to create sharp lines and defined features on both skin types. Contino makes magical use of black lipstick and white eyeliner, and then uses white powder to a powerful effect – giving both Riquilene Soares and Olga Shuldyk an ethereal look.
