Inspired Makeup Monday: Open Doors and New Beginnings

Hello Friends!

Welcome to another Inspired Makeup Monday. Today’s creation is pretty on the nose - open doors and new beginnings. I know, it’s cheesy. But I am so head over heels obsessed with 2019 even though we’re only 21 days in.

As I’ve said before, I’m not one who believes new beginnings are only for January’s or Monday’s. I think any moment is the perfect moment to change your life. However, being reminded that things can change and that you’re capable of changing them is a good thing. Everyone has the power to upgrade themselves, they just have to believe they can.

The Creation:


The Inspiration:

Ok, I know this isn’t the most artistically advanced work I’ve done but hear me out! I wanted to do this piece because opening the door is the easy part. Getting to the door is the part where we realize the good idea, go towards it, and are on the cusp of doing what we need to get it. The hard part is walking through. The darkness isn’t hardship but uncertainty. We have no idea what is going to happen after the “plan” stage and we begin the “do” stage. It’s pee your pants terrifying. There’s no way around the darkness. Maybe someone gives you some tools that you can use as a lamp but there is no light coming from the other side of the door. It’s impossible to know until you get to the other side and reach the next door on your journey. I hope you walk through your door because deep down I know it’s going to be worth it.
