Suggestion of beauty

Suggestion of beauty - student project

I finally have an excuse to indulge in drawing and finish this project!

I'm working on a set of original face charts for my makeup courses, the "paper ladies" is how I call them, they will be colored with makeup to design makeup looks.

Anyway, long story short, I didn't use any reference photo and decided to use beauty standard proportions. 

Here is my initial sketch

Then I traced the drawing on a new sheet of paper and decide on my suggested lines

I used a brush pen for this because I love the variety of lines it gives. 

Here is the final result

 I think I could do with less lines but overall I'm pretty pleased with it. I wanted to suggest not only a female portrait but also a beautiful face. 

Would love your opinion, Chris! Thanks for this class, it was very enjoyable :)
