Negative Film Effect with Makeup

Inspired by Arizona artist Kate Rogers, I’ve attempted to paint my face for Negatives. Meaning, when film is exposed in reverse, the colors mimic the actual colors they “should” be in real life. A fun practice in color theory and a real brain twister. It took many “tests” and translating color in different exposures, sometimes quickly running it through an app to get the colors right. Not to mention, thinking inversely about color value.

The internet is such a marvelous place (as well as dark and scary at times.) but connecting with a fellow artist with true passion for the art and craft of makeup artistry just makes my day.
