WOH – those are a lotta pictures of my face! Maybe I should have had a warning sign before this popped up and gave you all the shock of your life ;) That being said here I am in all my colourful and chubby cheek loving glory, as you can see a lot has changed over these past few years. Back at University I was all about the colour, I couldn’t get enough of the stuff and if I wasn’t wearing something bright then something was seriously wrong. I was the girl that wore a black dress and paired them with a pair of bright pink tights, black shorts were met with blue tights and yes I even had a purple pair too. I didn’t own a single neutral shadow, I wore green and blue shadows as everyday colours I kid you not and blue liner was my BFF.
Since leaving University I’ve not only grown up, I’ve also strayed from that ballsy edge that would pair glitter, yellow and green together on my eyelids and leave the house ready to own the night, now it’s a miracle if I incorporate a dark smokey blue into an evening look. Although my tastes have altered and I’ve become more timid when it comes to incorporating colour, I do admire the guts I had back in the day, as they say no shits were given and I had a blast. As you grow up you may find yourself becoming more conservative, you develop a more chic daily work style at least thats what I pretend I’m doing however it’s important to embrace all elements of your personality. I am still a loud and brash person at best of times but although that might not come across in my makeup on a daily basis, it’s an element of my personality I don’t want to shy away from.
Although I might not be rushing right back to the blue liner it’s important to embrace change whilst staying true to yourself, a tough feat in these high pressure social times. Although the rest of the world is filling their wardrobe with monochrome statement pieces I might have my eye on a orange skirt ready to make it’s debut, I’ve never been one to follow the trends. Change is good but don’t stray from your heart, it’s what makes you special and individual and is the essence of who you are.
