So what does deep beauty mean..Ok so I’m gonna admit, this is probably one of the scariest posts I’m putting up but I think it’s really, really important that we get real for a second here. I love that a lot of you look at me for inspiration and see the makeup and the positivity and it can seem like I’ve got it all together, but I’m here to tell you that I don’t have it together all the time. I get lost in negativity, feel down on myself sometimes and a lot of the times I compare myself to other, smarter, prettier girls that seem to have it all figured out. I’m human.
I’ve never really, truly talked to you guys before about my struggles before but I have suffered from low self esteem/confidence issues for most of my life for reasons that range from growing up in a city where I didn’t look like 95% of the people around me, to struggling with body image issues, to reasons I’d like to keep private (maybe one day I’ll talk about it). The thing is what I love more than anything else in this world is helping you. There’s nothing more rewarding than the feedback I get when you learnt something new I taught you in a tutorial or you were moved by something inspirational I posted.
So I realized that the only way to truly help is to get super real with you guys because how can I help you live your most beautiful life if you don’t know how to get from where you are to where you want to be? Cause it’s not just about contouring your face, throwing on some brows and believing in yourself, there’s wayyy more to it than that, way, way more and I want to cut through all the bullsh!t (sorry mom) and really help.
So what exactly does deep beauty mean? It means taking that first step towards loving yourself. For me that started with the outside. That is something we can easily control. I am in love with the way that beauty & fashion can transform. Learning the techniques you need to make the most of your features from makeup to hair and fashion. I know some people might think it comes off as vain, but you can not deny that when you look good on the outside, you feel better on the inside. It’s 2016. Beauty and fashion aren’t going anywhere.
That’s not all of it though. There has to be the work that is done on the inside so that when you do strip all of that away you still feel good. That’s what 2016 is all about. Learning to fall in love with yourself and living a deeply beautiful life and I want to help as much as I can. So let’s go on this journey together. I’ll post tips and let you know where I’m at so we can all look back on Dec 31st, 2016 and be proud of how far we’ve come 🙂
