Post Glamour Winter

How does one reinvent glamour? That’s the question I’ve been grappling with. I am a big fan of glam, you know… Jerry Hall, Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, love them, been inspired, copied.

I sometimes get crazy ideas. This look was created by layering the colours next to each other. I was inspired by all the jewel tones from the two palettes I bought. I wanted to keep the colours “pure”, and see how bright I could get them for the camera.

Miss Mexico

On the other hand, they celebrate a certain standard of beauty, which is evolving, but it’s still not as inclusive as it should be. I wanted to share the creative process of working with Miss World Mexico when she came to Canada!
