Expression Through Makeup

Through the use of predominantly color, contrast, and texture, I captured a series of self portraits focused on avant garde makeup.  I was inspired to focus on makeup because it is one of my favorite forms of creative expression, and I used self portraits because most of the time other people are not willing to let me experiment on their face the same way I would on my own.  Most of the photos in my concentration are a result of me sitting down and being spontaneous with makeup. Throughout this concentration, I progressed from subtle, minimal makeup, to very over the top, extreme looks.
