In this series from Pretty Hurts, Petra Collins photographs six women as they prepare for their days.
College student, hostess, and dog walker Jackie Storr tries to make it out of the house in a good mood. “For school I wake up between eight and nine. It takes me, like, 20 minutes to a half an hour to just shower and get ready.”
To check her makeup, she’ll often snap a selfie, but she keeps her look minimal. “I like to wear mascara and bronzer so I have a bit of color, but I just like the natural look, sort of American Apparel–style,” she tells the Cut. “Natural beauty is most beautiful to me.”
Most of her time getting ready goes into figuring out what she’s going to wear so a bad outfit doesn’t ruin her day. “I just want to feel happy and comfortable in what I’m wearing. The more I feel that this is me and I’m not trying to be someone I’m not, then I’m pretty happy and I’m okay.”
