Here’s a soon-to-be #glowup
as we prepare to celebrate Halloween! 🎃
I created this #jasonvoorhees
makeup look in 2014! 😳 If I could go back in time and give myself any advice, it would be:
1. Maybe lay off the spray tanner if you’re about to impersonate an undead zombie. 🧟♂️
2. Hashtag the sh! out of your posts and get seen, even if— no wait— ESPECIALLY IF you’re just starting out on Instagram.
I think I used like FIVE hashtags on this post because I got sucked into the comparison game and caught myself thinking, “I want only a few people to see my work... not so many views that make people think I’m a show-off or a know-it-all or a wannabe because this look actually isn’t even that good and I probably shouldn’t have even bothered posting this because it looks so patchy and unblended and seriously really amateur-ish like wtf was I even thinking—⁉️‼️⁉️”
If you love it and if you’re having fun doing it, why are you worrying about what other people think about it? 🤷🏻♀️
My soul sister, the extraordinary poet @loriharder
sums up the whole mindset shift even better in one of her recent pieces:
“”I am not what you think I am; I am not what I think I am; I am what I think you think I am”
Moral of the story is the only thing that’s stopping us is what other people think
Get your mind off other people’s shit
And put your soul back in the driver’s seat!
The only thing wrong with you is that you think something is wrong with you.”
So stay tuned for more Halloween makeup looks because they’re fun and I love doing them. 🎃
