fugitive - Overall, I like it, but if I were doing it, I would make the model more visible, and tone down the brushes a little.
I have to also agree with Fugitive here, when i look at a magazine for glamour shots i look to see the model first and then the gadgets the model is using for that look, yes i see your trying to sell the gadgets, but when that kind of item is sold they use a model to show the buyer the item that works for the model then hence will work for the buyer, do you see what i mean...?

Try adding your beautiful model as the main picture, with the gadgets of the make up brushes as a blended part of the picture.

I use models prefer make up and in the set is a small magazine, the magazine is showing off the items they sell by using each brush with the make up on the model, and each picture is of the model first.

It's a little 80's to my mind. I like the use of typography but the graduated fade, not so much. Again I like the "fashion" script font rather than the stark images of the brush.

Hope I don't come over too negative, because the overall feel of the image is unmistakably cosmetic.

I think you did a fine layout. Having the fonts going opposite of each other has a tendency to make one actually read the print and still make the beauty of the model noticed. Centering the models eye in the "O" was a nice touch as well.
Afterall, the product is the brushes, not the model. Makes sense to me.

I have to agree with LQQKER, the layout os good, the fonts are very well laid out and the effect does make you actually rea the text.

I think the overall balance is nice and soft, after all your selling the brushes not a girly magazine.

I cant fault it myself, i find it very effective.

Well Done !
