Spencer's current project Cosmetic Influence is focused on the notion of 'beauty' and how the visual definition of beauty in commercial contexts. She has been producing fashion portraits that involve closeup and macro shots to enhance a brand. Spencer's approach allows her to remain independently creative while producing high-end fashion portraits for clients and commissioners. Her practice involves looking in-depth at how they work towards campaigns. This project outlines how makeup, in its varying extremes, affects the representation of individuals in staged scenarios with images that contrast between vivid 'fashion' styled makeup application and no or very little/makeup. Taking into consideration how professional makeup artists and photographers have collaborated to achieve a particular look within the beauty industry.
