Makeup Wizardry: Women's Faces Painted To Look 2-D

This is '2D or not 2D', a series of faces painted by Valeriya Kutsan to look 2-D and photographed by Alexander Khokhlov. I am most impressed by Valeriya's face painting skills. Because one time at the county fair I asked for a Spider Man face painting and everyone thought I was a Jack o' Lantern. That sucked.

The project explains: "Valeriya used different techniques of face painting so you can see a lot of variations - from sketch and graphic arts to water-colour and oil-paintings. This is a combination of interesting make-ups, studio photography experiments and careful retouching."

Did you read that? 'Careful retouching.' That basically means it's all Photoshop. "That's not what that means." It is too and you know it! "Give people some credit." Pfft, the last time I tried to give a person credit, you know what happened? Turns out they'd lied and made me look stupid. Nope, from now on everything is fake.

Keep going for a bunch more

Thanks to Steph and A, who only wear this kind of makeup to the office on whatever the opposite of casual Friday is.
