Hi! First let me say this is an awesome shot! A pretty girls face filling the frame completely leaves the eyes no where elso to go but the girls face. I can only offer three things to think about and they are very small comments indeed. The lighting below the models left eye is just a bit too bright. Same with the tip of the nose. I find myself distracted just a little by that. The shadows are deep enough that the bright light could have been lowered by one half a stop. I would have spent just a little more time working on the eyelashes to get them evened out and straighter. To me they sort of look a bit clumped together. The skin on the face looks as if it has been done with a photo editing program. No problem there. The only thing I would have done is softened the skin on the hand just a bit to hide some of the texture. Too much of a contrast between the skin of the face and the hand. The skin of the hand looks sort of rough compared to the face. I am a big fan of catch lights in the eyes. You've got a small one in the visible eye, which is balanced nicely with the rest of the image. Personally I would have put one in the other eye just to help it stand out from the shadow just a bit more. The ring size is perfect as it's about the same size as the visible eye. Nice balance. The lips are perfect! No lipstick on the teeth either. That's good. As I said this is an awesome photograph and you should be very, very proud of the outcome. What I mentioned are just tiny things that I may have looked at. But that's me. Your vision in making this shot was terrific!

makeup was flawless. Nails could have been longer, but are well painted. I love how the teeth arent way white, because that would have undone the color bluntness. But they are a bit too purple. But overall great. Ring goes very well with the scheme. I love the pail skin a lot. Cuticals on fingers should have been pushed back more. And yes, that does matter in photography. But, I think this was very very very welldone, I even added it to my favorites. Eyeshadow was amazing. The eyes were the rperfict color. I like the shiny lips. The pose was great. Eyebrows well done! Bravo! I can see that you worked hard, but remember what I said. You did well! <3 hope this helps!

great use of symbolism (ring for eye), color and composition here. it is a simple compositon, but so rich in detail.

I love her make up and expression. The lighting, contrast and hues are perfect for the mood. However, I'm not a big fan of the ring, I feel like it's taking away from the model.

This is very beautiful! ;W; I love the closeup-ness of the shot and the dark tone to the picture. Or would it be tint? xD Lol, anyways, a very nice pic. :heart:

Where can I find information on the makeup used in this photo?

This is quite lovely, and the choice of colour is so very fitting with the overall mood of the piece.
