As always, Zemotion has this amazing ability to create such striking and bold photography, she makes it look easy.

This piece is particularly bold as it depicts a blonde asian. At least, thats who she looks like to me.
Asians are typically dark brunettes, therefore the blonde making the image even more bold. (stating the obvious--but I'm getting to it)

I enjoy the fact the blonde almost blends into the models skin, as the tone is very smooth, mellow and soft, just like the hair. I love how the lips are contrasting, very dark and practically blend with the background. Her eyes are barely seen, and appear black as her lips. I also enjoy the slight dark shadows on top of the head.
As mentioned in a comment, she does give off a "doll" like effect and it can come off eerie and lifeless. The fact you cannot see any eyebrows does give off a cold feeling. And her hair is so strictly straight!
But I'd say the makeup gives a touch of supernatural without being too out there. Almost like a strange dream.
She may look strange at a glance, but she's also has a strange appeal.

This piece is very fun. I always enjoy these kinds of shots.
What do you think?

This is great. the very simplicity of this picture is the inherent beauty of this shot.
very well executed!
The hair and make-up looks absolutely amazing. They really make the model look other-worldly somehow
