This model has great lips for this shot. I love the white outline she has on the upper lip and her cupids bow is fairly pronounced. I don’t use color often on the lips but I think this shot calls for it.
A trip to the notions department at Habermans, a local high end fabric store, yielded this crystal studded length of black mesh. I’m not sure what it’s used for in dress making. The store has a special case that someone needs to help you with, which we all know means $$$ You buy it by the yard so I buy just enough to tie around a models face.
I found the mesh makes it all but impossible to retouch. She has some eye creases which I would like to take out but the mesh makes it extremely hard. Casting the right model and attention to detail is important for this look. I would normally shoot the first look plain, then start adding fabrics, scarves, hats ect. Make sure your f-stop will capture the eyes.
The tip of the head, open mouth, red lips and the touch of fur tie the image all together…just sayin
