Adrianna Gołębiewska and Mateusz Bidziński put together this beautiful series showcasing theater makeup and costume designs. The models have their entire face strongly accentuated – lined eyebrows, thick eyeliner, bright lipstick and for the woman, rosy cheeks. This style of makeup design is often found at the Opera or in the theater to make the faces of the actors more visible to the audience.

This style is carried over into this time period-inspired series. The woman has looks curls tied up around her head, a tattered gown and white lace gloves. The man’s outfit is a lot more dramatic and theater like because of his black lips, accentuated beauty mark and black eye liner. His bright velvet shirt seems a lot more clown-like than the woman’s dress.

The theater makeup and costume design in this series really emphasizes even the most subtle expressions, therefore making this series very eye-catching.
