cre·ate: to evolve from one's own thought or imagination, as a work of art or an invention.

Colors. Lines. Shapes. Shadows. From the natural shading of contours to the oh-so-steady precision required to achieve the perfect wing (that’s my specialty, and I fucking love it!). There is nothing more satisfying than creating the best lipstick/lipgloss combination or blending a picture-perfect smokey eye. Creation gives me chills and exhilaration at the same time. The agony of wondering if everyone will like your idea just as much as you do is neverending for a perfectionist like myself. Nonetheless, I want to create a legacy. A change. A standard. A new era of beauty and acceptance.
