Make me up...

Just found this image randomly on google image search after looking for 18th century paintings for my essay... weird eh?
But isn't it amazing? The idea that anyone can create this look with a bit of paint is awe inspiring.
The book 'Body Painting: Master Pieces by Joanne Gair'

"This make up artist uses the body as a canvas and this book presents 75 of her best works, covering a variety of show business celebs as well as models – all in body paint. Some of the most accomplished photographers of our time, like Annie Leibovitz, Herb Ritts and David LaChapelle, are behind the lens for the shoots. Who knew that such artful application of such thin layers of paint could provide such coverage?"

Mind you, her makeup is pretty damn incredible also...
