Everyone knows we love a bit of tribal beauty here at Zen Magazine – fact. So how amazing would it be to add a bit more war paint into the overall look? New York based model Marsha Larose sent us a few images from her most recent photo shoot with Leo Yu and we are loving the results. “The inspiration was taken from Alexa Meade’s paintings,” says Marsha. “As well as traditional tribal face paint, we wanted to do something outside of a typical beauty shoot and had a lot of fun with this.” Below are a few images from the shoot:
