'How to' by Ellen Walge

I wanted to have the main focus on white elements so I decided to leave the rest of the skin bare with minimal makeup - just some glow. After the skin was done I took a small heart shaped stamp, dipped it into white paint and applied it on our model’s face. For the other images I took some pearls I found in a craft shop and applied them one by one with lash glue. For the last frame I went crazy with the stamp and applied it all over the face, not trying to make the hearts look too perfect.
