I can get inspiration for the posts pretty much from everything, and often it is music.
The other day I have been listening to this song (The Echo Friendly “Panic” here) with the following lyrics: “Put on my blush and lipstick and try to look optimistic”.I was having a rough time, so it made me think…
Makeup can be seen [and often is] as something shallow, and vain, but it is not necessarily so. If it makes you feel better, and lifts up your spirits, why not using it?
