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.
