Great concept. I'm not sure if I'm on the right track, but maybe if the mouth were not obscured by the sunglasses, so you could see the entire face, it might be more powerful?

Is that just make up

This is the 2nd photo concerning this topic in this challenge. I can only hope that this is not really happening to your model!!! I really wish that you would try to find another way to display your photographic skills... Something a little nicer next time please....

Well I think this is more a symptom or effect, then a sign...and it looks like sparkly glittery eyeshadow
Good effort at some out of the box thinking, tho!

I like how the sunglasses cover her mouth. It symbolizes her silence about the abuse. The model is acting her part very well.
