Green with Envy


Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money.
Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance. Sometimes green denotes lack of experience; for example, a 'greenhorn' is a novice. In heraldry, green indicates growth and hope. Green, as opposed to red, means safety; it is the color of free passage in road traffic.
Use green to indicate safety when advertising drugs and medical products. Green is directly related to nature, so you can use it to promote 'green' products. Dull, darker green is commonly associated with money, the financial world, banking, and Wall Street.
Dark green is associated with ambition, greed, and jealousy.
Yellow-green can indicate sickness, cowardice, discord, and jealousy.

Dripping Cosmetic Looks by Photographer Julia Sieckmann

It's not often that this veteran Art Director sees beauty photography that gives me goosebumps. Saw these and just has to share. As a painter I adore pigments in the art of beauty photography.

Purple rain.

Powdered pigment and liquid without blinding the model.

One of the most interesting lip shots I've seen, almost graffiti.

Just love the powder pigments fading out.

Man, I wish this was my work!  Stunning.

Taking the lipgloss shot to the endth degree.

You only get one change for a shot like this.
