I airbrushed her skin all over the body in a light gold sheen. Aimee added a pre-built hair piece to the side of Alexa's (our model) hair and we worked some gold sheen through that as well.
The rest of the makeup was a little bit of 50s inspired technique, with a modern softness and the gold sheen over top. The overall look gave her a beautiful ethereal look while still keeping in mind the history of Helen of Troy.
"Was this the face that launch'd a thousand ships
And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?
Sweet Helen, make me immortal with a kiss."
-'Doctor Faustus', by Christopher Marlowe
Thank you Aimee and Alexa! I had a blast working with you!
