Today I decided to do a little beauty tribute to the women that inspire me because they are creative, exquisite, and overflow with style and class despite the challenges their careers have presented them with. (they are listed in no particular order).
Mainly, they are fearless.
Emily Browning is pictured first- she has her own sense of style, and only chooses to take on roles that challenge particular stereotypes. For instance, she was offered the role of Bella Swan for the Twilight series- but she wasnt really feelin it. Even though it would have made her exponentially more wealthy and famous, she turned it down because she did not like the character she was cast to be. BOSS.
Gwen Stefani- need I say more?
Misty Copeland- This woman is everything. She is the first African American soloist for the American Ballet Theatre, started dancing when she was 13, and even though she does not have the typical body type of the Balanchine dancer, she is so talented and positive that ABT couldnt even stop her.
Etta James- perfection. Talent, strength, and beauty. I am overwhelmed just thinking about how many challenges she had to face. But her challenges just made her stronger and fueled even more artistry and passion.
Im working on a little something to post tommorow- in the meantime, I am in complete awe over these two “comic book” makeup looks. Absolutely flawless…(photoshop had something to do with that with regards to the second look fo sho)
Tribute to the absolutely incredible Alex Box (mostly with Illamasqua)
