The photo series starring model Vanessa Cruz by Yulia Gorbachenko, a photographer based in New York City, looks as though it were inspired by the movie 'Black Swan.' The Brazilian beauty takes on Natalie Portman's portrayal of the Swan Queen in equally stunning beauty looks that range from dramatically monochromatic to femininely fierce and even innocently natural.
Flawlessly retouched by Cristian Girotto, the photo series starring Vanessa Cruz by Yulia Gorbachenko almost appear to be comprised of paintings. Of course, this has a lot to do with the makeup artistry of Frances Hathaway as well. Playing with theatrical eyelash extensions and mask-like shadows while embracing Cruz's signature freckles, Hathaway has created beauty looks that will dazzle anyone. They will surely inspire women to experiment with their holiday beauty routine this year.
