You ever have a day where you just feel slightly off? Today was that day for me. There's a lot happening right now. Power outages in Texas have my family and friends sitting without power for literally days on end at this point with no end in sight, the northern hemisphere seems to have turned into a frozen tundra, we've been locked inside for almost a year, and well, I was just feeling a little bit off today my friends. So I decided I needed to do some self care and grounding in my makeup look and practice today.

How to Ground Yourself
While using the Rustic Brown ShadowSense, visualize your feet and toes digging deep into the earth. Feel the energy of the dirt on the soles of your feet. Think of how deep the earth goes, and imagine that your feet grow roots and go deep, deep into the earth.
Self Love with Pinks
Pink is such a healing color for loving yourself. When applying the Desert Rose to your eyes and cheeks, feel the love in your heart swell with acceptance for yourself. To genuinely appreciate who you are and the gifts that you have to offer the world. Be open to loving yourself. Forgive yourself. You are enough, just the way you are. Feel that in your heart when you apply the pink tones. Let the pink's healing energy work on you.
Before I did this look today, I thought about fairies for some reason. I think my next inspiration is going to be a fairy/pixy inspired look. Watch for that to come.
In the meantime, be sure to care for yourself. Hug your loved ones tighter, hold them close. And most of all...be true to who you are.
