Makeup For Your Alter Ego: Part Two

I'm so excited today to be bringing you the next look in the Alter Ego series, as it's been done by one of my absolute favourite bloggers. I admire this persons work a great deal, and whilst we may live on opposite sides of the world, I've come to consider this person to be a friend in the blogging world. I'm honored to have them posting on my blog today, so rather than blabber on like I usually do I'm just going to cut to the chase...

Today's blogger is the very beautiful and incredibly talented Sonja from The Beautiful Life Of The Girl Next Door. Sonja's looks are always incredible, and this one today is no exception...

Does Sonja's Alter Ego remind you of anyone?

Pink maybe? Yeah? Let's hear why..."When Natalie asked me to be part of this alter ego collaboration, of course I jumped at the opportunity. I was thrilled to be grouped with the other incredibly talented people who are a part of this. However, I also knew that I couldn't just throw something together quickly and have it measure up to these other ladies. So I had to think about it. A lot. This was an opportunity to go wherever and take it as far as I wanted.

In real life I'm a quiet, shy girl who doesn't like people looking at me. It makes me very uncomfortable when people look at me. I also don't like confrontation so I'm not really good at speaking my mind (I'm getting better though haha) and I want everyone to like me. So trying to think of my alter ego, I wanted her to be someone who was bold and doesn't mind being the center of attention. Someone who is proud of who she is and not afraid to say what's on her mind, without being obnoxious, even if it ruffles a couple of feathers. The celebrity I related the most with was the singer, Pink, who notoriously said, "Kanye West is the biggest piece of s*** on earth. Quote me." when he took the microphone from Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV VMA's. She's not afraid to be herself and say what she thinks, she's edgy, yet feminine and I love that about her.

I wanted to do a look that represented a bolder side of myself because I know she's in there somewhere, she's just hiding under a sweet, nice, quiet girl haha!"

Like I said, Sonja's looks are always AMAZING and this one is no exception. I Love it!! The drama, the colours, everything!! And I'm sure you all do too. Make sure to stay tuned for the next installment...
