Final Major Project: Shoot FMP#12 – Self-Portraits – 14-04-18 ​​

During this shoot, I applied all of my makeup and did not seek help from a makeup artist as in previous shoots. Having my hair tied back adds to the intrigue as you can see more of my face.


The contouring makeup was applied in dots and patterns to create a graphic look. I also chose to colour my eyebrows with mascara – this was quite tricky to remove!


The most effective images are those where the contouring makeup has not been blended. There is something strange about the makeup.

After I removed the elastic and the makeup, my face was again sore (see below). It is almost as though the projected image of me has adhered to my face and that by removing it I am removing a small part of me each time.
