Makeup Designer: Sabrina Tait
Photographer: Chris Newton
Model: Celine Tait
Title of Work: The Mask of Beauty
I was given a black mask which had been crudely cut in half. The photographer said that he liked the iconic look of the titled character in the phantom of the opera. He challenged me to come up with an alternate take on it and gave me free reign to create the makeup. Inspired in part by classic portraiture I wanted to portray a beautiful woman of stature who was hiding a horrific disfigurement.
