MAKEUP | DARK INDULGENCE

To think I uploaded this tutorial weeks before I left London is crazy. I originally disliked the video because I thought it was not perfect ( well I still think it’s crap but I needed to post a video). I’m my own worse critic, I over think and over analyse EVERYTHING. If things don’t turn out exactly how I imagined it in my head, I dislike it. Over time I’ve come to realise that this habit ( more like mad lady habit) affects my progress alot. I’m learning to use what I have to achieve what I want regardless of whether I think its perfect or not. 

My point is.......instead of waiting for the perfect time, space or day to come before you start a project, just use the resources you have presently to do as much as you can. Waiting for the perfect moment might NEVER happen.
