Lately I have been falling in love with make-up again!! Not really wearing it all the time but more being a make-up artist and not letting my 2 years of studies go to waste.
I think I lost my passion for make-up when I started wearing it so much and it started to define who I was. I never wanted to leave the house without my face on and it made me feel super insecure if I had almost nothing on (mascara and blush). I would cake (cover every spot with way too much make-up) my face and feel like I had come alive. I didn’t want that to define who I was or how I felt about myself anymore. As the picture says the way I saw my life, shaped my life. I never felt beautiful. I took a break from it just to find myself and just to feel like God made me beautiful with or without make-up. I still did matric balls/proms and functions that friends or family had asked me to do but I never really put myself on the market for a long time. I had spent time in front of the mirror, put up messages that would say, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made”, “You are beautiful”, “God does not make mistakes”, “No amount of make-up can make you more beautiful than you already are”, “Live for yourself and no one else” and “You got this”. After doing this for about a year I began to feel way more confident about myself and said “Okay Tiff you are a Lion and you will be brave in everything you do, no matter what anyone says.”
After being involved with Colour Conference 2015 hosted by Hillsong church. It truly awakened my passion for make-up and just being so excited with the outcome. I found myself being proud and overwhelmed with what I did on these amazing people. Seeing the singers and actors on stage, having the make-up on that I had done, really made me ask myself why I had stopped doing this. Why, why and why again.
I have recently done some make-up for more matric balls/proms and will start to do lots more make-up posts. I won’t stop adding my fashion and lifestyle posts but I feel like I should share my skills with you all in easy step by step guides. I really hope you would enjoy that :X
I just wanted to be very real and honest for a quick post and I hope you all got to know me a little bit more.
