Beauty by Briana Dai

Hair & Make-Up stylist Briana Dai and photographer Alicia Stepp for Kim Dawson model Lani Baker

Hair & make-up stylist Briana Dai and photographer Alicia Stepp come together to photograph model, Lani Baker for Kim Dawson. For these two artist’s first collaboration, they aimed to capture a natural glow with pops of color. Guided by the model Dai said, “Lani is such a natural beauty and we wanted to play up the effortless cool her look inspires. I wanted to enhance her beauty without overly polishing her, so I opted to really amp up her hair texture with a bit of Davines salt spray and approached her skin with a light hand, using tones that I knew would make her eyes POP!” Subtle and impactful, this looks makes a light touch count.
