'Dar(l)ing Beauty' is Beauty Scene's latest editorial exclusive by Lea Gendrot. The image series spotlights experimental hair and makeup looks that consist of damp, slicked back and braided tresses along with bright eyeshadow applications and chromatic brow looks. Makeup artists Rika Bitton and Maïly Howard collaborate with hair stylists Akemi Kishida and Julien Honore to bring this photoshoot's looks to life.

Models Alessandra and Fanny front the beauty story while donning electric green brows, muted liner and exaggerated powder that is Geisha-themed. The duo also pulls off a bold spectrum of lipstick hues, ranging from peachy and subtle to glossy and jet-black.

Lea Gendrot's Dar(l)ing Beaity editorial experiments with both wearable day makeup and theatrical cosmetics that are more appropriate for the stage than they are for the street. Embracing whimsical elements, this image series is an homage to the eccentric fashions of designer Martine Gendrot and jewelry maker Marion Delarue.
