The last photo shoot I helped out on got me thinking about how artists are portrayed in promotional photos. I love the idea of capturing a woman at work in her studio. I picked out some of my favorite images and artists evoking personality and strength while still glamorous.

These are some make up ideas that are stark, light/dark and convey sultriness while still classy and feminine.
