Whim favourite Daiana Aquije has just shot a beautiful portrait series, ‘Human Nature’ – a study dedicated to natural beauty.

‘Human Nature’ is a love letter to autumn colours and being swept-up by nature. Dramatic bold lips and dark eyes contrast crunchy leaves and mustard and pumpkin tones. “We wanted it to have the mood of a fairy story,” explains Daiana.

This shoot is also a wonderful example of the ‘fake freckle’ look, completely done with the magic of makeup artistry by Luciana Rozenwurcel. We’ve always known freckles are beautiful and this trend just confirms it – wear your freckles proudly if you have them!

They also chose to style model Lauren’s curly red locks as naturally as possible, making her look like a bold autumn sprite.

Daiana’s shoots are often a complete immersion into another world – sensations as well as stories. Published all over the globe, she’s currently based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Find her on Instagram (@daiaquije) or on Facebook to follow her wonderful work.
