I get inspiration for makeup and beauty ideas from books, magazines, movies, people-watching, stores, and even paint swatches. These flashes of colors or images make me want to try out new things with my makeup, hair, and nail care routine, and I think it’s really important to identify what motivates you, in order to achieve the looks make you feel special.
Imitation (when done correctly versus a complete rip-off) really IS the sincerest form of flattery. The idea of taking something, then deconstructing that idea and making it your own is why the world of beauty, or what each individual defines as beauty, is so fascinating.
It’s easy to get stuck in a beauty rut, and rely on the same routine, but doing that does nothing for a person. Motivate YOURSELF. Step out of your basic (or extreme) beauty rut and do something new. Find inspiration in the little things around you, and start taking risks with your beauty routine.
