21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Pam (Contouring)

This photograph was taken during an in-home makeup tutorial/makeover. For decades the US has been obsessed with these types of gatherings. What seems to have started with Tupperware has moved through many industries. In this image my partner's mom is photographed before the lines have been blended. The search for eternal youth and beauty seems to never leave our psyche.
