Mia Brammer in “Cut it Out” by Riccardo Dubitante for Models.com
Posted Apr 03, 2017
Mia Brammer enters an arena of neo-application in “Cut It Out” by Riccardo Dubitante for Models.com. Teal streams fall like tears from the sky opening our minds to the thoughts on high. Like rivers running down her face, this flow brings forth the fluid nature of forward beauty. Serena Congiu uses a variety of shapes as a conceptual landscape for this multi-layer makeup experiment. Modeled poetry mimics the momentum of integrity expressed in live sculpture. Each picture projects a sense of visual rhythm as the effigy of energy evolves in visual rhyme. Instead of thinking of this as shapes applied, instead, consider it a re-configuring of the cosmetic sculpture proper. Form/Function are maintained through the angular aperture of the human condition. Seeing ourselves as part of the optical instrument, is to imagine a grander sequence of events. Ines Longevial, “intertwines forms by rendering different parts in contrasting but muted colour palettes.” Paying homage to Longevial’s geometric play we experience a greater graphic interpretation. Conjiu places cutouts of various face shapes atop the proper area, giving the look a deeper dimension.
Stylist, Ramona Tabita, interprets this fusion of fashion as layers of sartorial artistry. The concept of forward fashion is well defined in this carousel of couture. Breaking it down, we get the stimulation of 70’s inspired sparkle with the heat of hyper-modern design styles. A flat black top falls in shapeless harmony over her body, as red embellishments are added in a sequence of circular synergy. A muted, purple shirt is stacked over a turtle-neck top covered in a plethora of loose-cut, silver sequins. This is not a neon simulant, rather, it brings the notion of bright colors with the distinctness of a muted pallor. The end result is nothing less than exquisite. Ramona takes us to another lever as we see the specter of light distributed in a unique setting.
Serena Congiu celebrates the unity of vision while creating a bridge of flaming fury. Mia’s skin sings in its natural state with a florid flush that moves across the face, as a Vaseline glow takes over the eyes leaving room for a sanguine surprise. Scarlet sizzles across the lids touching just the top lip, while a deep, crimson color casts itself over the lower lip. Pop out peach saturates the cheeks, while a two-toned mouth gives the look of multi-dimensions. Crying never looked so inviting ~ as a river of tears flows down her face and neck. Cutouts create unique levels, with a glossy application set in a sea blue shade. Dramatic details are attached under her eyes, leaving a rich illusion over the top of the skin. As tears follow the aqua slide down, showing like a facial fairground ride. Done in a triple format, the art of avant-garde makeup is complete, as the same teal color cries out a trio of droplets careening down her left cheek.
Perspective is a commonly held visual perception, as shifting phantasms creates a series of optical illusions. A mirage makes you see an apparition of light, taking you forth in the specter of sight. A trick of the eye perceives this detailing as being a three dimensional object. Trompe-l’œil is a visual mirage intended to create the illusion of multiple dimensions. This artistic technique uses realistic imagery to create optical illusions depicting objects that exist in three dimensions. Forced perspective is a visual perception that provides a fantastical comparison. Design shapes send us into the deep recesses of our imagination, while primary colors more than pop, they sizzle us into the next century. Bold looks redefine the idea of modern, as the age of re-enlightenment has arrived, we begin to understand what we can’t see or feel. Intertwined and connected we have spent centuries locked away from our higher selves. On the outer-banks of the atmosphere we find a new side of salvation. A side of both spirit and strength. A side that celebrates the evolution of enlightenment. Our five major senses are our spirit guides, of sorts, as we follow them on this path toward ourselves.
