  • Pink with pink and pink .... 💕 more absolute gorgeousness from my shoot with @frances_day_bridal. I love this soft and overalls pink look I created on @abbi.favellstapleton teamed with skin that looks like skin. I created this editorial look that compliments my signature style. Beautifully captures by @pearbearphotography hair by the talented @charlotteoreganhair jewellery from the perfect little boutique @lnidjewellery.

  • Filters and editing apps: 
Social media contains many, many edited images.... it doesn’t stop with celebrities most of your friends (if they admit it or not) edit there images. This creates unrealistic expectations and confidence issues to many. Those that edit often dislike  what they see if the mirror and when we edit pictures it feeds that insecurity.

After I did this , I proved my own point by having a small moment of “I look so much better with those edits” I had to shake myself out of it...! This edit was done using a free app in approx 10 minutes, I chose to subtlety edit my face so even my best friend didn’t really notice too much difference...... I have smoothed and warmed my complexion, made my hair fuller, whitened my teeth and eyes, slimmed my face and shortened my forehead and chin I even made my eyes slightly bigger. 
I stand against filters and editing apps, I want too look back on myself in the future and see reality. I get many people showing me images of digitally smoothed skin....... makeup DOES NOT remove texture! 
Learn to love yourself, ‘imperfections’ make you who you are, tell yourself something you love about yourself in the mirror daily just for a change! .
I’m not saying don’t have fun with filters, we all love some dogs ears but don’t use them to warp your own reality #stopunrealisticbeautystandards #stopunrealisticexpectations #stopusingfilters #naturalbeautyadvocate #makeupartist #naturalmakeup #filter #faceedits #photoediting

The 3rd release in our real skin series. I want our work to be a welcome break in your news feed from over edit plastic skin. We all have pores and some of us are lucky enough to have freckles! We all need to see a little realism in social media and makeup, I want women to feel confident and not put out images that make anyone feel bad about who they are.
