This gem was in my Facebook memories so I thought I'd share it again. On the left I honestly had no clue what I was doing because I was doped up and didn't even try to make myself look nice. What do you think I did for a living back then? If you guessed stripper you were right. I wasn't a very good one either, I was so high I'm not sure how I kept my eyes open for these pics. I wish my past wasn't part of my story, wish I could say it was something entirely different. Unfortunately we can't change our pasts, we can only accept them and learn from them. What's really important is now I'm clean, healthy, and happy. So let's look at the makeup on the left and laugh for a minute because it really is ridiculous 🤣 Back then no one cared about eyebrows, you have no brows that's fine, you have rainbow brows that's fine, thin was the style. I always thought less of a brow you have the better. So why not bring the eyeshadows and glitter all the way to the brow? Sounds like a good idea right? Wrong! These are some of the worst photos of myself I could find from my 20's 🤦🏻♀️ Now thanks to all the makeup tutorials I know how to apply makeup correctly, so a big thank you to all the muas who taught me! I'm still obsessed with glitter I just don't bring it to my brow bone anymore, it belongs on the eyelids or lips. You can even put glitter in your brows or on your highlight, application is key. Everyday I take a minute out of my day to reflect on where I used to be to where I am now, and I count my blessings. I feel like it's human nature to take things for granted sometimes, but when you were as out of control as I was, even just a hot shower and comfortable bed is something to be thankful for. I love my life now, everything around me is beautiful, everyone in my life is beautiful. Life itself is beautiful, even through the pain. I'm forever grateful. 🙏 (Swipe left for smiling transformation pic)
