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!
In the makeup world, its not uncommon to find or look for a makeup twin! What's a 'makeup twin'? Well, in a nutshell, its a celebrity that closely resembles your natural skintone/hair colour, eyecolour etc - someone that you can look up to when it comes to making makeup colour purchases and creating various makeup looks. I think that besides having a makeup twin, very often women also look for a Style twin or 'Icon' to look up to. Ideally, style is about creating a look that is unique to you - but we all like to look up to someone or go for an ultimate chic look that never goes out of style. Having a makeup/style go-to person is not about being someone you're not. In fact, it about looking up to a muse that already possesses what you know you like. This is something that I think we could all use to channel the best parts of ourselves. Its not about copying - its about inspiration!!! Time and Time again, people have pointed me towards 'Katie Holmes' as having similar look to mine. Strangely enough, most recently in an attempt to try the Bright Winter colour palette - many people have suggested, why not try the Summer palette again (I kept getting requests to try Soft Summer in particular). I love to experiment so I gladly started to test some Summer looks at home - I already know I'm not a pure cool season and I'm definitely not a light season. I then decided to try the Soft Summer again, but this time I tried 'Soft Summer Deep' - one thing that I've learned in this recent discovery is that many women who think they are autumns and even drapped as autumns are really 'Soft Summer Deep' colour types - When I started to read more and more about the season, I realized that my makeup muse Katie Holmes is a Soft Summer Deep. My jaw actually dropped because I really feel that my quest may be coming to an end, thanks to the inspiration of my Celebrity Makeup Twin and the help of many of the women on the Bright Winter Facebook Page who took the time to help me realize there was something aging about the Autumn on me and something not quite right about the bright seasons. This is not another 'Here she goes again' post - this is just another step in my colour journey that I'm excited to share!!!
