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!
Today started off being a very interesting day - Toronto was in the midst of a snowstorm - the schools in my area were closed and being that I'm a teacher, I got a 'snow day' :) - It was the perfect morning and afternoon - I made pancakes, stayed in my pyjamas all day - watched a marathon of movies! I also went though my makeup case and rediscovered some shades I had forgotten I even had. One of these shades was Chanel Captivante. It was a lipstick I wore to one event, then it somehow got 'lost' in the jumble of my other lipsticks. When I took a close look at the shade, it 'wowed' me - its honestly the most perfect rose-copper-neutral shade. It's quite a stunning shade to say the least. Upon further examination, it seemed to harmonize with my other makeup shades - I realized, Captivante was held 'Captive' Wayyyy too long!!! This lipstick is going to be worn - its getting its 'get out of jail free' card! I actually really look forward to building a few more looks around this shade. In this photo (I'll call it my 'snowed in' look) - I used a mix of MAC shadows: soba and amber lights on the lid into the crease, Marcelle dark brown liner smudged with MAC saddle and black-brown mascara. I used a blend of MAC Gingerly blush and Chanel 'Candy' (another stunning shade I rediscovered)! I finished off the look with Captivante!!! Sometimes you need a snowday to remind you of the jewels that are hidden - the diamond in the ruff!!! I'm almost starting to think that there is something very metaphorical and symbolic about this find!!! :)
