This is our second year working with Rianna and I love the relationship we have built over the last year as well as the AMAZING line of cosmetics she brings with her. She has a background in fashion and accessories and she started Rimix Cosmetics when she was having trouble keeping her skin clear and makeup in place while teaching pilates in 2014. Her vision developed into a full faceware line of hypo allergenic sweat proof and waterproof cosmetics that are sophisticated and beautiful to wear. I’m not kidding …. this line of cosmetics is to die for! I brag on Rianna and her cosmetics all the time. I have taken a Senior in 103 degree temps for 4 hours and the make up hasn’t moved! I’ve never seen anything like it. (The girls give up before the make up does!) Rianna always listens to the Seniors and delivers exactly what they want in the line of style and vision. She often gets the girls as repeat clients later in the year for Proms and Graduations because they love her and her make up so much! Rianna and Rimix Cosmetics have been featured in several magazines, online publications and London Fashion Week!
Yay! I’m beyond excited to have Brooke Hampton as part of our our team this year. I scored big when I was able to get Brooke as the Key Make Up Artist for our Shakin’ The Runway Fashion Show last year. She was able to take my vision for the show, work with a team of 8 Hair and Make Up Artists, and in all the chaos of 26 models backstage, not only deliver what I needed, but the Ambassadors looked stunning! I just knew right then and there that she needed to be part of LRP! Brooke is a freelance makeup artist in Austin with 5+ year of experience and has worked with some of the top professionals in her field. Her passion for makeup spans on all platforms with her experience ranging from bridal, editorial, commercial, runway, portrait, stylized shoots and film. I can’t wait until we collaborate on our stylized sessions later in the year - I’ll be bouncing ideas off of Brooke and letting her run with them. She recently started her own company, blush 'n bangs, with her best friend who is a hairstylist as well. They combine their skills to provide on-location hair and makeup styles customized for each client.
Brooke has a talent for giving flawless natural makeup and my clients almost always request her “beachy waves”! She's able to really connect with them during a session and they feel as they have a super cool new girlfriend at the end of their day! We are so lucky to have Brooke and all of her talents on the laura reed photography team!
I heard about Jackson last year when I wanted to incorporate High School students involved in our Shakin’ the Runway Fashion Show. My goal was to get a High School Senior videographer as well as High School Seniors from different schools to photograph the show. I wanted to use their images and footage for Social Media following the event. Jackson was recommended to me by an Ambassador and when I interviewed him, I was SO impressed!! Where had he been hiding and how come I had just been discovering him? He graduated from Westlake High School and is currently attending the University of Texas, School of Film!! (Hello?? No brainer!) Smart, driven, enthusiastic, artistic, creative and polite, all adds up to my perfect videographer. He did such a remarkable job on our Fashion Show video that I knew he was going to be a part of our team! I've been so blown away by his talents with other projects on his resume, that I've recommend him to friends who also own their own businesses. I love that as a Film Student, he is on the cutting edge of what is happening in the industry. Through our collaborations, we have come up with such cool concepts for the coming year and I can't WAIT to see the finished projects with the our LRP Ambassadors, the Documentary he is producing for us and more. You ROCK Jackson!!
