The lady in Gold



Woo! I'm on a roll today! Pumping out the second of my many overdue posts. I thought it would be fun to play with on figure looks that combined beauty with concept. I remember researching this idea of using gold leaf and seeing all these terrible and tacky examples while also being equally inspired by the use of it as an eyeshadow on the runways at Fendi. It was neat to see the sheen and the raw texture that was created while simultaneously creating a sense of decadence. I didn't think about it at the time, but I wanted to go for a beauty sensibility that you often see at Aveda. Think I've got it?
