Self Portrait Challenge~Lips















I don't normally wear lipstick. Hell, I rarely wear makeup. But I am always intrigued with how lipstick shows up in black and white photography. Therefore for this week I chose to don some and even go a little heavy handed on it, and then fool around w/ the brightness/contrast levels. I love the mood lipstick can create.

:) I don't do heavy lipstick either, except for black and white. Your pic turned out beautiful. Very cool.

You are so right on about black/white and lipstick. I think that is why all the old actresses looked so GLAM.
Love it!
