Stunning model Ming Xi stars in the 'Smart Tools' editorial for Vogue China. This series cleverly mocks the lengths that women will go to in the name of beauty. These photos focus in on Xi's face, usually including some kind of beauty tool. Some of the "tools" incorporated into these shots are more heavy duty than others for dramatic effect.

What's great about this series is that it's filled with sultry evening looks, but also mocks the extremes that women will sometimes go to for the sake of looking beautiful. Women aren't afraid to suffer in order to look good.

This striking series was shot by photographer Marcus Ohlsson, who did a great job of keeping the focus on Ming Xi's bold looks, and her various beauty tools.
