Egyptian Makeup and Bodypainting

Egyptian Bodypainting by Emma FarrellDublin BodypainterDublin Bodypainting Specialist
This is a shoot that I did a while back. The concept was something ancient and Egyptian. I had to start by painting Azaria all over with a bronzed brown from Kryolan, you wouldn’t believe it from this picture, but she is actually Caucasian!

I then handpainted all the hieroglyphics and the make up.  As you can imagine this took aaages, because each one had to have its own shadow/highlight to really make it pop. I think it was worth the effort though as it turned out quite well.
