BEAUTY & PERFECTION
Updated: Apr 15, 2018
In this day and age many people think that beauty and perfection go hand in hand, when in reality, they can never really co-exist.
From my humble opinion and experience, it is in the flaws, the faults, the mistakes and the insecurities that beauty lies, unhindered and innocent of deceit.
I wanted to share with you a quote of mine that I was proud of because in one way or the other, we can all somehow, relate to it and understand it.
Perfection does not exist, and if by any chance it does, then we can't categorize it as natural or inspiring. At least not in my book I don't.
Now I know that the above picture has a nice filter that goes with my quote. But here's a video of me below, no make up, no effort with my hair whatsoever, in fact it could be considered a little greasy in the world of beauty.
Despite the fact that I did use a video filter to give this video a more of a cinematic approach, I assure you it has not improved or enhanced my skin or my look in any way, in fact it has only highlighted the dark spots on my skin as it has made my skin-tone a little lighter than it actually is.
I was nervous about making this video. I was very nervous about posting it on Instagram and horrified to have posted it on YouTube for the sake of sharing it here. However I thought to myself, why preach natural beauty and believing in ones flaws if I won't share mine with the world.
We all have insecurities, we all want to be beautiful, but not at the expense of our unique identities.
Until next time, live & love.
