Finding Inspiration

Inspiration for me comes from so many sources. I find most of my inspiration in nature. From the wings of a butterfly to vibrant blades of grass, I am inspired by all beautiful things.

For this look I was inspired by a peacock feather. I loved how the colors appeared to jump right off the page. I had to try something like it!

I was very impressed by the model who sat through her entire face and body (up to the shoulders) being painted black. It was a time consuming process but ended with great results. She was a great sport!

Incase you were wondering, I used Mehron creme based paint and Wolfe face art palette for the lids.

What are some things that inspire you?

  1. Gorgeous Nicole! I too find inspiration from Nature and all things around me!

  2. The make up is wonderful, the pink and teal colors looks very nice against black and the way the model poses... as if she apart of nature herself, the way she looks calm.. but yet something bold. Amazing :)

  3. I live for this image. The skin, the color AMAZING!

  4. Thanks Ladies! I truly love finding inspiration in all things. Figuring out how to get it across in a photo that's the hard part.

  5. I love this look!!! The hot pink is just brilliant! I find inspiration from nature, people and just about anything. :-)

    Keep up the good work.
