Desert Sunset

Desert Sunset
And YES I qualify because I was born in the desert, and STILL live here- and if I didn’t have my sunsets, I might actually FINALLY move to New Zealand. Or Portugal. And London. I could totally do that.
But- I’m here, for now.  So with that being said, I need to just notify the internets that this past week has been an absolute nightmare for me. Super rough stress. My body has taken things very hard. I’m sure I’m a hormonal mess (because I am a LADY, dammit), so my reward was a very painful, very deep, very 3-dimensional cystic acne breakout.  I have no shame.  I’m delighted to show you what I look like without makeup. This is very important because we ALL break out. We all have our insecurities. We ALL have shitty weeks.  We are human. We are ALLOWED to have a bad day or two!  SO- my issues are not going to curtail me from doing what I love.
So, after a craptacular week, and a 2 hour nap (with the weirdest and most psychedelic dreams), I present you this look of desert sunset dreamy-ness.
I used some amazing pigments from My Beauty Addiction and lashes are Red Cherry 43’s.
I am sending you light and love for the next week!! I am praying that my next week is safe and full of the loving kindness that I put into each day.
