Striving for Perfect: The harsh reality is that everything is flawed. We continually push ourselves for our own versions of perfection. Unfortunately, there’s no such thing. We’re chasing a concept that is not only ever-evolving, but it’s a concept that we oftentimes cannot even define for ourselves. Striving for perfection gets in the way of our goals and holds us back.

With makeup, aim for balance instead of complete symmetry. Nothing on the body is 100% symmetrical.

Aiming for Interesting: Most of us struggle to show our whole selves, so we respect those who are brave enough to actually do it. It takes courage to let go of societal norms and lean into who we really are. But unshackled is the only state when we do our best work and fulfill our true potential.

With cosmetics, experiment with the colors and techniques that speak to you.

“Caution: If you trade in your authenticity for safety, you may experience the following: anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addiction, rage, blame, resentment, and inexplicable grief.” 

-Brené Brown
