My friend Andrea called me up to ask if I would be interested in working with her and photographer @scrappyradish who is always putting out fun new content and I was all about it. She then texted me a few pictures of the outfit she would be wearing and I was gobsmacked! 

Totally futuristic and weirdly robotic, I immediately thought, braids need to happen (that is, after I gave props to HIllary for crafting this look). Make up could have gone so many ways, so I thought I would just go into this project with an open mind.

I busted out my Mehron bright palette after consulting with Andy. We knew we wanted silver metallic in the make up but that was about all I had to go on. I didn't stress because ultimately, this shoot was not about the beauty. However it is a classic example of how the effects of hair and make up help to complete a look.  

In an effort to perfectly caption one of these images on IG, I found Proverbs 31:25.  I absolutely adore the spirit of it and how it perfectly captures this collaborative effort of ladies who lead.

"She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."
