June celebrates Filipino Heritage Month so we were excited to collaborate with a group of talented Filipinos from our community to showcase their passion and creativity. Coming together on this collaboration was meaningful as it served as a reminder that no matter where you come from, whatever your walk of life, there is beauty to be celebrated and talent to be showcased.
The photos for this post was a collaboration of talent from the incredible women listed below. The vision for this shoot was to capture a balance between the strength and femininity of a woman. You can be a strong, independent woman AND be soft and playful at the same time. I'd like to thank them for coming together in a special way to celebrate the importance of International Women's Day.
When Shaina reached out to me inquiring about a collaboration, I was immediately intrigued by her vision of having her collection infused with reiki. 'Hmmm, how would that even work?' I wondered. I need to know more, so as we developed her collection I asked some of the same questions that she answers in this blog. And now after launching this wildly successful two-colour collection - 'Love' a soft pink and 'Light' a warm brown, which has caught attention reaching as far as New York, I knew I wanted to feature her here to chat about this unique collection of lipstick and lip gloss customized for her business.
