A Smokey Eye and The Illusion Of Perfection

A Smokey Eye and The Illusion Of Perfection

A Get Ready With Me where I do a smokey eye with a nude lip, but today I am challenging myself to to it in reverse. Eyes before foundation. Which gives you a long look at 53 year old skin in it’s natural, “imperfect” state. So today’s topic is also perfection. How society makes us feel like we always must do everything “perfectly” and how releasing yourself from that unobtainable goal may make you a happier person. If your smokey eye isn’t perfect, can you still find happiness? Lots of close ups and eyelash application.
