Embracing Your Beauty

The inspiration for this post came rather spontaneously, as it’s something I myself struggle with more then I’d care to admit… embracing your beauty. Now I’d consider myself to be a rather confident person 99% of the time but seeing as we’re all imperfect I can’t lie and say everyday is all rainbows and butterflies.

Living in this generation we’re constantly bombard with images of these gorgeous “perfect” humans with their stunning bodies and not one imperfection to be traced on their skin but I’ve come to realize through the help of others that that’s not the only kind of physic that is attractive or beautiful. I know I’m guilty of getting so use to seeing the same reflection in the mirror day after day that it starts to slip my mind just how beautiful & unique the little features of my face and body can be.

It’s no secret that I adore a good off the shoulder top but very few individuals may know one of the reasons behind that. On the upper right hand side of my chest I’ve got a scar which has been imprinted on my skin since I was a year or so old and there is nothing I love more then showing it off. To me scars are really beautiful & what is even more beautiful is someone who radiates confidence when it comes to those marks and isn’t ashamed of them or feels the desire to hide them.

In conclusion I’d like to express this: no matter what it may be that you’re struggling with, physical or mental, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL & PLEASE DON’T EVER THINK OTHERWISE!

A Touch Of Purple

IMG_0075 IMG_0077 Hello everyone!! Spring is officially here which means it’s time bring out the bright shades. Don’t get me wrong I’m a neutral girl at heart but sometimes a pop of color in refreshing. The color I incorporated in my look was purple – which brings out brown eyes.

I kept the eyelids simple with a matte cream shade on the lid and a medium-toned matte brown blended out in the crease, all from the Lorac Pro Palette. Next I grabbed the Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette and started focusing the color on my lower lash line. I slowly began to build up the intensity concentrating on the 2nd row of the Tarte Palette. First I took the shade Caregiver and Natural Beauty on a pencil brush and buffed them on my lower lash line. Then going in with the same pencil brush I took Best Friend and Bombshell – which are the two darkest shades in the row and smudged them along my lower lash line.

The last two things to complete the look is eyeliner and mascara. I took the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the shade Riot to line my water line. It’s a smokey matte grey with tiny violet and fuchsia micro-sparkles which makes it pop in the water line. The finishing touch to this look is mascara. I reached for the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and lets just say thats it’s not my favorite. I would definitely recommend other Maybelline mascaras over this one.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my take on a spring look incorporating a pop of color. Are you going to be incorporating a pop of color into your spring looks and if so what color?
