'Piece of Art' by Yulia Gorbachenko Stars a Painted Samantha Xu

There is a reason why the word 'artist' is included in the title 'makeup artist,' as the photo series dubbed 'Piece of Art' by Yulia Gorbachenko beautifully shows. Makeup application is an art form in and of itself, although this beauty editorial goes further down this path than most people would dare to tread. It treats the face as an extension of a canvas, quite literally. Model Samantha Xu's face rests in a cutout that continues the splatter of paint that covers her.

Although much of the credit does lie with the New York-based photographer's eye for composition and coloring, Piece of Art by Yulia Gorbachenko owes most of its stunning qualities to the artistic work of makeup artist Anastasia Durasova.
