Feature Friday By Emily Denny

photo by Adrien Broom 

Makeup for this look was inspired the oil painting, Bacchus (1595) by Italian Baroque master, Caravaggio.  The image (as shown below) displays a youthful Bacchus, with his dark curly hair, reclining in a classical fashion with grapes and wine leaves.  The original portrait is found in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.

I really enjoyed creating this look.  I wanted the lip color to resemble the color of wine so I chose a rich shade of berry from Jennie's signature makeup line.  The color is called Laquer. (available soon for purchase ON-LINE!  Stay tuned for the launch of our new, e-commerce website!)

I'll be sharing more from this collection of work in a few weeks!  Please check back soon!  Until then.....

Have a great weekend, JF Beauties!
