All hands on deck for a polychromatic encounter

Our new team member Lara, a fashion student who joined us from Marseille for the past two months, had a kick start into her internship with ZOOT. Her initial meeting with our creative director Antonia Rosa turned into an unexpected experience. Lara arrived at Antonia’s atelier in the middle of a busy make-up session with five models, make-up artists and stylist, the renowned fashion designer Pedro Trocades. Up-and-coming photographer Isabela Glock was setting the light for the beauty shoots to capture the colourful characters being created,
when all of a sudden, Lara arrived.

For the very first day of my internship with ZOOT, I stumbled into this makeup experience that ended in the following photoshoot.

The make-up was free interpretations of different inspirations and different icons. As it was my first day, I didn’t understand everything in Portuguese, but for sure I could feel the strong team work energy. Led by Antonia Rosa, with professionalism and great benevolence, everyone felt like they belonged where they were. Everyone helped or gave advice to each other.

Antonia’s atelier is a place of creativity, free expression. And thanks to the makeup, which can act on us as a magic trick, we are able to transform a “normal” human into someone or something else—to tell new stories.

During the shooting, one model was missing, and Antonia asked me to model. I said yes, even if I just met all the team only a few hours ago, because I felt I was in a safe place.

So, here I am, after helping a little bit with the make-up and the shoot, sitting on the makeup chair myself, with Joana Lopes starting the magic on my face and Pedro Tocades styling new clothes on me.

I’m not Lara anymore. I am Lara Boop, freely inspired by Betty Boop.

I know if you are a model, or a comedian, or an actor, you might be used to seeing your image change, to becoming someone else just by a change of the appearance. But for Lara Boop, it was a new and exciting experience. Afterwards, when I had left and washed the make-up off, I felt myself back to normal, casual Lara.

For Bianca, I think I catch a vibe right when I saw her when I entered the atelier, I just started the makeup and let it flow, she looks so cool and beautiful with her shaved head and the piercing.  — Joana Lopes

My main inspiration for the makeup was a little bit of a wrestling fighter, meets Dracula. The combo came from the experiment in the moment playing with colors and contrasts. — Pedro Trocades

Sweet Betty Boop
meets Chucky´s bride

Make-up by Joana Lopes
Featuring Lara

I wanted to bring out the sweetness of Lara’s character and of Betty Boop but push a little “mean girl” vibe with the fake piercings, and make a reference to Chucky’s bride Tiffany.
