  1. Is she painting the face with emotions rather than make up. I strongly feel so, looking at her eyes! Brilliant B &W click!

  2. Always love it when photographers capture behind the scenes of any profession. It gives a sense of the amount of work that goes into the final act or product.

  3. Good focus on make up artist, a good close up in b/w. that brings out necessary character, especially the eyes.
    I’m no photographer…so my comment may not weigh much.
