Beauty and Makeup

Inspired? You bet your ass I’m inspired!

I love this whole post at ” Color Me Inspired…” (the ellipsis [series of periods] is part of the title). Her philosophy on beauty and makeup IS inspiring. If you believe this way, then you know you are beautiful already.

See, regarding makeup in fashion, it’s not about making anyone pretty or beautiful. It’s building off and transforming the beauty that’s already there. Notice I said nothing about enhancing, for transformation is what’s key. Most fashion models seem to be interesting looking and have chameleon like capabilities.

We shouldn’t be using cosmetics to “make ourselves beautiful”, or even “enhance ourselves”.  The way I would restate what she is saying is that we are transforming ourselves into the character we wish to play for that day, or the feeling or image we wish to represent… (my ellipsis. lol) but the beautiful foundation is already there to build upon.

Go read “Creation”! And click around and check out some of the amazing makeup she has done.
