I am the type of person who is always seeking and learning. I'm eternally on a journey to be my best self. I think that life is too short to not do the things that you really love! I have made a pact with myself that I will celebrate who I am and I will honour my spirit!
Here is a makeup look that I ceated using the colours that were chosen for me when I visited the House of Chanel in Paris. As I mentioned in my previous post, I met a really kind and 'tres chic' woman named Caroline Ghisolfi who helped me pick out shades that complemented my skintone and that also were 'elegant'. The colours were: Prelude eyeshadow quad with Gris eyeliner, Frivole blush, Rouge Profond lipliner with the classic #19 Gabrielle lipstick!!! Oh La la - Tres Chic!!!
I had a lot of 'a ha' moments about beauty while I was in Paris. This year I've really come to discover that beauty actually has more to do with inner beauty. You see my new philosophy is that beauty works in a system of 'layers' and it all starts at the same core - your soul/spirit! When your spirit shines forth from witin, you are your most beautiful - everything you do after you have ignited your spirit is simply a reflection of the beauty that you possess within. Makeup is actually one of the last layers - its what you apply to your face, but its your inner beauty that is reflected through your eyes that really makes you shine. I went to Paris looking to gain a new style, and I left Paris as a new person, not because of the clothes I got or new things that I purchased etc - I left Paris a new person because I discovered the secret to 'allure' - its not a thing, its not a lipstick colour, its not a scent - its embracing YOU - its letting go of all the things that no longer matter - its about giving your time and energy 'only' to people who deserve it - its about knowing your WORTH - once you discover this layer of beauty, your inner worth, you shine bright and when your spirit shines bright, your beauty will last forever, it will shine on until the end of time................How Magnifique is that???
