Daily makeup routine *~experience~*
Stuff I usually do for regular daily makeup. Also lots of editing tests, YEEHAW. All around strange video.
No matter what I do it keeps wanting to start the video 2 mins in. Sorry about that.
The campaign for this was forever ago but I figure since I have a crapton more followers than I did when this came out I should re-introduce it!
Last year I starred in a film for the Trevor Project and AT&T called Love is Changing History: Jenny. It was actually co-directed by Pauley Perrette and it was amazing to work with her (here’s a little behind the scenes intro :D).
It was a really important job and I worked it between my testing for narcolepsy before I had any treatment so it was a real test too. I’m so thankful to have been a part of this project and to have worked with the awesome team behind it. It was a really great experience.
It’s gonna be another sleepless night. Lamb hat modeling, go.
I’ve answered this a few times, here’s my haircare tag for ya!
Alright, sentimental lamb time. I was thinking about stuff while taking silly selfies.
For a very long time growing up, I was told I was ugly by my schoolmates. By my friends. They made me have insecurities about juuust about every part of my face and my body and to this day when I take selfies I delete so many because I still feel self conscious about so many things.
But sometimes I just shove the camera in my face and just look at myself. All the things they said were bad. My dark hair, thick eyebrows, big forehead, big teeth, big nose, kinda uneven eyelid skin wtf, the little mole on my left cheek, etc, etc…
And then I’m just like… Yup! That’s my face! That’s me! That’s my big forehead and my big nose! I know when I smile my big teeth will show!
Taking gratuitous (and often silly) “selfies” really helped me be more comfortable with myself. I spent too much of my life hiding in literal corners when out in public. I used to cry if I had to go shopping anywhere with my parents or sister because I felt, even at like age 6, that I was hideous. I wore big sweaters and scarves to hide under. I never wanted to give anyone a chance to get a good look at me. My heart would finally stop racing when we got back in the car.
That’s how bad that kind of bullying affected me. I guess it’s why I take so many selfies now, not only because they’re fun to decorate with stickers and stamps, haha.
Soooo yeah, don’t hate on selfies, dude. Doesn’t matter if it’s an annoying bleach blonde girl at Starbucks screeching in high tones about her coffee fix and making duckface. You don’t know where everyone has come from, like, emotionally and mentally too. When I first started this blog I veeery rarely posted any sort of photos. I was way too scared.
Not saying anyone has to post selfies if they don’t want to, but it was a very good thing for me to do. :> Self acceptance and love is awesome.
Happy Easter, Josh!
I hid the eggs and helped him find them. XD;;
Hesitant Easter outfit. Need some vitamin D to make me cheerful and then later sleepy.
And Happy Birthday to Crispin Glover! XD
