Glitter for Reve Beauty Magazine
I think that there's a myth that success is an overnight thing, where one day you're a novice and then all of the sudden you're on the map, an overnight phenom. But that's not how it works, and it's definitely not how it's been working for me. Rather than one shining moment of success where everything pivots, I've found that each new opportunity is built on a past project, sometimes it's something small that I just did for fun to fill an afternoon and try out a new idea or concept. This shoot came about because the editor of Reve Beauty Italia saw a beauty test I shot in July of 2017, I posted some of the images from the shoot on social media and a few months later she contacted me about shooting a couple beauty stories for her publication. Like I said, just bricks in the wall, one step at a time building on the work and lessons of past projects and moving forward.
So without further ado here is the full spread as well as some of my favorite images that didn't make the first cut. I hope you enjoy and keep working towards success in your calling, whatever that may be.
