Makeup For Your Alter Ego: Part Five

Aaaaghhhh!!  So here it is, the fifth and final look in the Alter Ego Series.  Dun dun dunnnn...Mine! I've been f-reaking out about posting this for ages now!  The bloggers that have collaborated with me on this series have all produced some incredible looks so I've really been feeling the pressure haha.  I think you'll all agree it's been an amazing series and I'm really grateful to everyone who's created a look for it!  Thank you so so much ladies <3 

Right!  Rather than babble on nervously for about an hour, I'm just gonna post my look and let my pictures do the talking!  So, here it is...





The concept for my look was about an alternate personality burning away inside me...my Alter E-Glow if you will haha (sorry I couldn't resist that) coursing through my veins.


On the outside I'm generally VERY reserved. My hair, my makeup, my mannerisms, anything to avoid drawing unnecessary attention to myself. But inside I have all this crazy shhh going on! I'm just incredibly conscious of how I come across to others and sometimes this makes me afraid to let go. Don't get me wrong I'm not contrived, just weirdly shy and very self conscious. So to me, my Alter Ego is the person inside I wish I was brave enough to be!

It really took a lot for me to post this look. Those of you that know me or have followed me for some time will know, I NEVER post full face shots of myself! But this time I couldn't wuss out!



I really liked the idea of the normal, reserved look juxtaposed with the bubbling eruption of the alter ego, and I also wanted to challenge my own strange obsession with symmetry. Hence the half and half approach to the look.  


So there you have it! My Alter Ego! Hope y'all like it!

Speak Soon xx
