Heavy makeup can be extremely overpowering, especially when it is in such bright colors. Steve Kraitt's 'Fruit at the Bottom' photography series manages a beautiful balance, even though the model's lips and eyelids are fully painted.
The striking series features a female face with tropical-colored makeup on her. One of the shots even features purple, a highly unusual lip color. Heavily-saturated colours like purple, yellow and green are unconventional, but in this case, they work well to highlight the model's features.
The photos range from peaceful poses with eyes closed to show off the beautiful spectrum of colors swiped across eyelids, to suggestive and ferociously feral. The exotic makeup looks are striking and skillfully applied, showing off the beauty of the model and Kraitt's talents as a photographer.
