Cosmetics often create that which we call beauty, so I decided to begin at the beginning.

Interesting composition. The making of beauty is not always a beautiful process.

An unusal idea - stand out amoung the flowers and pretty women and kids. I like the composition and the glaring lights. Feels like its not quite sharp and then a bit over sharpened in processing. Very classy nonetheless.

Forgive for disagreeing, but I think these are the tools for hiding beauty. However an interesting concept, and nicely arranged. <6>

Conceptually this is a very good idea and the white background is great.

The general technical quality of the beauty aides pictured is not particularly good. I'm unsure what to do about that. One thing you consider is to shoot at a shallow DOF and set the beauty aides at different distances from the camera so that some are in sharp focus and others are soft focused. Also, put some powder on the brush and add the applicators to the two open containers to make it look as though they have just been used. This would imply that beauty has just been created and is very nearby without actually showing it. That is powerful. It would make me think the user of those products is both gorgeous and glamorous and someone I'd like to meet!
