I'm so excited to have new cruelty-free perfume! I like both scents separately, but I really love to blend them together. I repurposed the rose columns I created for my Saint+Sinner bodypaint shoot! 👿

As above...

When I was younger, I compared my eyelids to roadmaps.
I made jokes about my insecurities, and told them in an attempt to beat people to the punch. Most of us battle with some form of self-esteem issues. Constant worries of how others perceive you can have such an impact on the way that you interact with (or withdraw from) the world.
Yes, I wear makeup primarily as a way of channeling my creative energy into something I can show the people I interact with.. but I also wear it to conceal things that I have been taught to be ashamed of, and I know this is unfortunately the truth for a lot of us.
Every time in the past decade that I have left my house without wearing makeup: "You look awful! Are you feeling okay?" "Someone didn't get much sleep last night." "You look absolutely terrible, getting sick?" It's exhausting. So I avoid it, with makeup.
This extends into the social media realm in the form of comments. We are our own worst critics, so it doesn't take much to fuel our hatred of certain characteristics we possess. My entire day can be ruined by a comment containing a single word, and I don't even consider myself a sensitive person; that is how powerful your actions are. You never know what psychological/emotional struggles someone else is going through. So much pain can be avoided if you are openly caring towards others, even if they are just someone you follow online. And while "gorgeous!" and goofy emojis elicit a smile, thoughtful comments and messages really go a long way. If you are deeply moved or inspired by people, tell them all about it. No matter what your follower count is, it is easy to feel small and alienated online - like you're tossing your creations out into a void. You can truly change someone's life by letting them know that they had a positive impact on yours. It may seem overwhelming or awkward at times, but I guarantee you that it is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have, for free! 🖤
My little rant series is over now, so makeup posting will resume shortly!

"You're so brave."
It's sad that this is a common response to someone simply posting a picture of their face without makeup. Existing in a photo as we do in real life - without covering it up - requires bravery?? Enjoy this uncomfortably close-up photo of enlarged pores, blemishes, and broken capillaries.
Don't get me wrong, I love editing software. I use it on every single one of my clients' photoshoots, and on most of my photos for this account. I think that digital work is just as much of an art as the makeup itself in some cases, and I admire people who are able to breathe life into their photos by editing them. This is your artwork, create a final product that makes YOU happy!
This admiration dies off when I see "gurus" and "influencers" posting #NoMakeup photos that are either heavily edited, contain copious amounts of "natural" makeup, or both. We all know about the pressure that society puts on us from a young age through magazines, ads, etc.. but we eventually learn (for the most part) that these are dishonest. Knowing that an artistic photoshoot is not reality is one thing, but now we're suggesting that people should look flawless and radiant WITHOUT any makeup too? To be fair, some people genuinely look like they're wearing makeup all the time - but when there is obvious deceit involved, it breaks my heart. It hurts me that the world has convinced people that their appeal to others is based on things that are entirely out of their control.
I've always suffered from low self-esteem (NOT fishing for compliments, but I appreciate you guys), so I know how deeply things like this can affect people. To this day, I do not leave my house without applying SOME makeup.. but I'll save that for my next [and final] post. How do you feel about dishonesty regarding edited photos and the way that the online beauty community is currently affecting people?

Took a few photos after hours of looking for something stuck in my eye (hence the bloody sclera). I love the textures and patterns found in anatomy. I obviously have some serious thoughts about "no makeup" posts [and the makeup community in general], but I know that a photo as innocent as this will cause people to unfollow and leave rude comments, so I'll save that discussion for my next post. Until then, enjoy the reality of irritated eyes, blood vessels, messy brows, and textured (gasp) skin!
