TBT: Luxe in Bloom

For this week’s “Throwback Thursday” we are featuring an editorial that we both worked on for Wilhelmina Models Miami. The concept of the shoot involved evening gown attire with a bronzed makeup look for Spring.

Photographer: Manny Perez

Model: Bryn English (Wilhelmina)

Makeup/Hair: Priscilla Barrera

Wardrobe Stylist: Brittany Bucknor

Check out the shoot details and our behind the scenes recap below!


Priscilla: For this shoot, we wanted to go for a glowy skin and bronzed eye look. Benefit Cosmetics has some of my favorite go-to products to achieve beautiful strobed skin. Since she has hooded eyes, it was important to raise and blend the eyeshadows up a bit so that the color peeks out when the eyes are open. Check out the full product listing below.

Brittany: This shoot was very exciting for me because I have been dying to do a shoot with gowns for the longest! This shoot included dresses from designer Jerrick Gray and the boutique Holt Miami. I love working with up and coming designers, since their pieces are usually unique and bring something different to the look of the shoot. So being able to work with Jerrick was a great opportunity. Jerrick’s pieces are exceptionally elegant and sophisticated, which fit perfectly with the shoot’s concept.

Holt Miami’s style is slightly different than Jerrick’s style of simplicity and elegance. Holt focuses primarily on giving you MAJOR glamour with embellishments, sequins, and body hugging designs. They are the perfect place for the ultimate prom queen or a special occasion for any glam diva!
