Sketching on Others - Inspired by a Fashion Show

Inspired by some images I saw in the London Autumn/Winter 12-13 Fashion Show of the brand Mary Katrantzou.

The look was a bare face, minimal shading, minimal brows, no colour on the cheeks and just lip balm.  What stands out are the eyeliners.  I love the statement it makes and the shape.  So I borrowed Jen's face and practised using gel liner.

At the end of the photo-taking, I decided to ruin elaborate the look a little by adding colour.  It was fun, but I  think I prefer the clean original look more.

My Inspiration:
