Attainable Glamour

It was all about attainable glamour, as makeup artist Mo Gregory, hairstylist Kanika Styles, photographer Randolph Garrett and creative associate Julianka Bell worked hard to create one of my most memorable photo-shoots ever. We wanted to be very unafraid of loads of hair, lashes and uber fabulousness, but we also wanted to create looks that were attainable for the everyday girl. And they are, in my opinion. I mean, a good smoky eye, a few extensions and loads of lashes really took me a long way.

And all of this for what you ask? For myself. Sometimes, a girl has to treat herself, K?

Randy has been building an amazing portfolio for the last few years, and plucked me to be one of his subjects. But all of this came in alignment with me realizing that I was due to show myself some attention. Plus, one of my amazing mentors, Kierna Mayo, has always talked about how much she wished she realized how gorgeous she was in her 20s, and took more pictures of herself (BTW, Kierna is so freaking beautiful…I don’t know where she gets this “was” from).

Needless to say, I had such an amazing time shooting with the always creative and super fun Randolph Garrett.

I hope you BB girls get a little inspiration to treat yourselves to a high glam photo shoot one day. Because, you deserve it.
