When Artists Unknown Magazine was rising in popularity, we did a collaboration with Graftobian Makeup Company to promote their metallic powder and mixers. While we never named the editorial because it was meant as a sponsored spread, I think the metallic makeup brought out a fierce warrior from what might appear to be a sweet and timid girl. Our model, Asiya, was more than cooperative when we brought her to the photo studio in less than a jacket and gave us all her personality as the makeup grew darker and darker with each modification.
