Metamorphasis (Self-Reflection) and MAC DIVA Lipstick
Sometimes a total make-over metamorphasis is necessary!!! I have been going through 'something' lately - something that has really hit me to the core - I guess I'm in a process of really having to take a hard look at my life and ask myself - Why do I give away my personal power to others? Why do I care about what people think about me? Why do I feel insecure and insignificant at times? Why haven't I found the perfect guy for me? Why is my life the way it is??? Asking myself these questions and realizing that some of my current relationships are toxic and not for my highest good, I've decided to 'seperate' myself from myself if that makes any sense - I've decided that I need to shed some skin - to finally take the plunge into discovering my 'true' self - my absolute 'authentic' self - since starting this process, I've discovered and felt almost every emotion any human can feel - anger, hurt, jealousy, blame, shame, guilt, but i've also felt that inner spirit within calling me to 'heal' - heal my heart, heal my mind, forgive myself and 'Move On' from the things and people that are not on the same joy path as me - its hard when you recognize that you and someone that you really love and care about are not on the same 'level' so to speak - you're on a different path, not a better or worse path, but on a 'different' path - its in my best interest right now to completely re-invent myself - to figure out who I am, what I want, why I'm here, whats my PURPOSE??? Its time for me to heal!!! WELL - HERE'S THE BEST PART - part of this healing and transformative process is deciding to 'Make Over' my physical self as well - I decided I needed a new look to match the start of a new journey for me, so I decided to go with a choppy, wild 'Joan Jett' Inspired look, go richer with my hair colour with a hint of mahogany and try a new and rich/deep makeup look - Here is what I came up with. I am so happy that this new journey has begun for me - I feel like I'm the process of discovering a being a whole new, 'authentic' me and I'm so GRATEFUL to God and the Universe for bringing me here, to this new life adventure:
Deep Rich Hair colour called for a deep and rich makeup look: I started with my basic face (mineral fusion foundation in olive, MAC NC 30 concealer and refined Golden Bronzer as powder) - I used MAC Raizin blush (my current favourite) and created a rich, earthy-chocolate look on my eyes - started with brule as my base, mixed soba and espresso and applied from the lid into the crease, lined my eyes with coffee liner and smudged embark into the upper lashline before finishing with black mascara (all MAC) - on my lips, I'm wearing MAC's mahogany liner with Diva lipstick!
