The 'Mi-Zo' Editorial in Velvet Magazine features an army of out-of-this-world beauties clad in rainbow-hued dustings.

These ladies are brought to life by the stunning duo of Minori Murakami (a Japanese graphic designer) and Zoren Gold (a German photographer). They are covered in heavy face sheen and framed by a head of wavy locks. Using the power of digital manipulation, makeup finesse and creative gut, the result is an eerie, Avatar-esque collection of glittering goddesses. Make no mistake, these picturesque faces are not solely the work of a computer mouse and Photoshop program, as close-ups reveal the heavy-lidded models are adorned with beaded eyelashes. The powdered gems can give credit to makeup artist Sharon Gault.

It is clear these designers have an apt sense of the visual alchemy success they strive for. Stats for Metallic-Dusted Captures Trending: Older & Warm
