"If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room would you trust it?"
You can find my latest editorial in See.7 Magazine this July! The editorial, Fleur Sombre (or "Dark Bloom") is loosely based on the song "Poetic Justice" by Kendrick Lamar. We had an amazing team: vision and photography by Indie Reece, Designer Dolly Donshey, and models Bridget Egan & T-Age Williams.
We submitted 10 photos, which I will post once the July issue is released!
"Fashion is global.
Across all seven
create, innovate, share,
swap and reappropriate
clothing every day to
suit their style, to
express their personal or
cultural identity. By
being aware of the
world around us, we
become aware of the
opportunities that exist
to identify or
differentiate our own
lives. By being part of
the global fashion
village, our own choices
Every issue focuses on
each of the continents,
exploring the lives of
those who live and
work in each area.
See.7 magazine distills
this concept into words
and images through the
eyes of photographers,
stylists, art directors,
artists and writers from
around the world."
Hello lovelies! I posted quite a few videos on my Youtube channel this evening..Check them out and let me know what you think! Don't forget to subscribe ;)

First and foremost, APOLOGIES! I have been SO busy and all over the place these past couple months! I know I get in little creative dry spells where I don't blog for a while, but this time I was truly a busy little bee!
Let's start at the beginning....
I moved in January, so getting the house together has been quite the chore. Moving from a 600 square foot apartment to a house with more than double the space is certainly time consuming...But I wont bore you with the details of that. This is, after all, a beauty blog..
So, anyway, I also started a Youtube channel. It's been a slow moving, but successful, project so far. I'm working on getting better lighting, editing software, and what not. Stay tuned for updates in that department. My Youtube address is: www.youtube.com/litravis! Please rate, comment, and subscribe! I'd love to get this channel going and pick up some momentum! I have a few videos posted already, please comment and share if you like them!
Here's the latest video tutorial for your viewing pleasure:
Moving on...I recently won an airbrush system from www.bellettostudio.com/. I plan on filming a review and a few tutorials after I've had time to play around with it and see how I like it. I'm so excited to have won an airbrush machine! I just recently learned how to airbrush, so now I can offer that service to my clients in the future!
I've also been working diligently with shoots, weddings, and a few other gigs here and there. My friend Reece with Indie Reece Fotografie has such a creative mind and I love working with him! We have been working on quite a few projects lately, and because they are being submitted for editorials I can't release the photos until they have been published..But a few outtakes and behind the scenes images never hurt anyone!
Ok guys, and for the grand finale. This is probably some of the most exciting news ever! My makeup is featured on Vogue Italia Online!!! HOLY MOLY MOTHER OF PEARL!
Reece submitted photos from his portfolio to Vogue Italia, from which Vogue selected and posted a few. All images must be pre-approved and selected before they can be featured online..SO THRILLED ABOUT THIS!
The image, along with Reece's other selected photos, can be seen here:
And that about sums it up! These past couple months have been such a blessing! Thank you guys for reading, supporting, sharing, and commenting! Keep an eye on my Youtube for videos in the future!
My attempt at keeping up with the times...
