The growing popularity of gold leaf makeup and hair styling is prevalent in Beauty Scene's latest editorial by photographer Adrianna Favero. The elegant image series features Marilyn Agency face Jisu Hong who is captured while donning gilded and delicately dusted makeup. Her metallic makeup is not only used as eyeshadow and blus but is also applied loosely on the model's hair and paired with a nude yet metallic lip color.
Titled 'Dark Magic,' this editorial features natural hair styling and conceptual gold leaf makeup by Ananada Kha. Paired with bare-faced and glossy skin, these gold leaf cosmetics mimic an opulent art applique technique that has been around for centuries.
Beauty Scene's latest exclusive celebrates opulence while retaining its air of subtelty. Its model star pulls off understated versions of runway-based beauty looks and proves that conceptual cosmetics don't always need to be over-the-top.
