The Niburu editorial for Vulture is a unique and metallic series captured by Xi Sinsong. This creative photo shoot for the zero hour issue of Vulture magazine features model Samantha Ruggiero, and she is photographed from the neck up.

The makeup artist Misha Shahzada uses the model's face as a canvas that she creates her masterpiece upon. She painted the model's face black, and kept her eyes and lips metallic shades of bronze, red and blue. The photographer used a black background so the glitter shimmers in the light.

Vulture Magazine knows what is cool and interesting before it becomes mainstream. The magazine focuses on presenting the creative pursuits of aspiring artists and fashion photographers. This glittery series by Xi Sinsong uses colorful, shimmery cosmetics in a unique way that definitely stands out. Stats for Glitter Dusted Ebony Editorials Trending: Older & Chilly
