Inspired Makeup Monday | Water & New Beginnings

Hello Friends!

For those who do not follow me on Instagram (I mean, REALLY, you should be following me on Instagram. We have QUITE the time!) I have been complaining about being sick for about 3.5 going on 4 weeks with bronchitis.


Because of this I haven’t been as active as I wanted to be…HOWEVER! I did push myself to try and get a look out today because 1) I miss painting weird stuff on my face 2) I’m tired of being sick in bed 3) I was excited for this series so DANG IT if I let coughing my brains out ruin my fun.

The Creation


The Inspiration

I really wanted January to be a month of new beginnings. I’m not talking about New Year’s resolutions (I personally don’t believe in that). I’m talking about a reminder for new growth, to celebrate how far we’ve already come, and to cut away the things that no longer serve us. I’m not talking about a new diet or changing credit card carriers, I’m talking about listening to your soul and taking stock of what you actually want - and going after it fully.

Water has been used to symbolize cleansing, new birth, life, and healing. I chose to forgo the turquoise waters for something a touch more sinister. Cleaning out the muck and grime of your former life is not easy, actually it’s poop-your-pants scary. There are uncharted places you’ll have to go, turbulent waves, dark and stormy depths you’ll have to explore. That’s where true healing and true birth begins. In the stuff you don’t want to do, in the things you’re afraid to do, in the things that are less relaxing than sitting under a palm tree.

I promise you it’s worth it.

What uncharted waters are you planning on exploring in 2019? What dirt are you washing away? What are you healing this year? I’d love to know.
