For So Jin and I’s 6th collaboration we added complexity.
I first noticed Dream, a friend of So Jin’s, from So Jin’s social media. At the time I thought she had an interesting look and filed the thought away.
I’m always on the lookout for a makeup artist to collaborate with. It just so happened that So Jin knew one.
I’d had an idea for a gender twist high fashion concept for awhile and as schedules and people aligned we were able to make it happen.
At the ‘un-famous’ tier of being an artist photographers get perfunctory congratulations. Everyone JUST wants the models.
- Photographers want to work with them.
- Friends and acquaintances praise, envy, or want to date them.
- Strangers want to slide into their DM.
At the ‘un-famous’ tier the makeup artist is even less heralded than the photographer. That is a travesty. A good makeup artist at the ‘un-famous’ level is more of a unicorn than a good model or photographer. So ‘Unicorn Leila’ know that you were much appreciated:
It was a long day between makeup preparation, going on location, and the shoot. We met at 9:30 AM and we said our good-byes around 6:30 PM.
