We all encounter challenges in life, this is inevitable. But the actions and choices you make on a daily basis can make a big difference to change the way you feel about yourself as well as changing the direction of your life.
Some might say it’s only makeup, but like anything in life, it depends on your outlook and what you make of it.
I can tell you that makeup has been my savior. It constantly gets me through tough times - it’s my passion, my creative outlet and most of all I can escape into a world full of beauty.
The most important thing to remember is to have fun, I sometimes forget this. Then I have a light bulb moment, how can you not have fun and be inspired by makeup?
Now to the best part, the products that were used for this look are as follows:
