Reasons To Be Beautiful ~ Black Magazine

I was marveling at all the fabulous color 

in this editorial in Black Magazine

and how exciting it made the story,

when realized sleeves weren’t adorning

 model Gabby Dover’s arms

– it was body painted tattoos!

Gabby Dover for Black Magazine

Aren’t they spectacular??

Makeup artist Becca Gilmartin spent 9 hours

handpainting these sleeves!

Totally brilliant in my opinion, both in concept and in execution.

They look amazing!

I adore all the color in this story.

I’m also in love with the glowing, gorgeous 

complexion Gilmartin has created.
