I have been working with The New York Makeup Academy of Japan since 2002. They hold a very special place in my heart and I thoroughly enjoy their visit and working with very different groups of equally talented Japanese makeup artists. Â Every training session ends with a photo shoot and I have to continually think of new ideas so that I do not repeat myself. For the Classes I gave to them in the Temptu studioÂ in June 2017 I found some paper shopping bags left over from my boutique The Art of Beauty by Linda Mason and painted these bags, cutting holes in the centre for the girls to look through. Here I digitally manipulatedÂ three different images of Cynthia combined. The makeupÂ isÂ by Yuiko.
