Once again just playing around with some simple special effects techniques, especially because the more you practise and take photographs, the more you can pin point what looks realistic!
I am happy with the bust lip but as I look closely at the pictures I can see the latex around the cheekbone isn't as blended as I would like, but that's exactly my point on the importance of photographing yourself. What looks perfect in real life, may be picked up different in the light of a camera. If it doesn't work on camera then your skills are useless!
