BBC Week 2

Here is Week 2 of the Beauty Blogger Challenge :) You can find out more info here

Where does your topic/update inspiration come from? What is the weirdest thing that has inspired you? What’s the weirdest place you’ve gotten inspiration?

A great deal comes from different pictures or recreations from other bloggers. I find that I'm still at this point where I am not that great at finding good color combinations on my own to do and sometimes applying eyeshadow can be a bit frustrating due to it not looking the way I imagined it. I feel that because so many people define beauty so Eurocentricly it has led me to kind of bemoan my eyeshape for it not fitting how so many other people see it. I mean I'll always see a pretty look but trying to adapt it to fit my eyeshape can get a bit frustrating.

I don't know if it counts for weird but I kind of remember walking outside in the rain and seeing that oil slick pattern in a puddle next to my car. I haven't been able to recreate that yet but I think it's kind of nice to look at things in nature (however unnatural it may be) and find a way to translate it into another artform.

This wasn't a question but I know my favorite inspiration for a look has been the costume that inspired my Arabian look from my Nutcracker series. I never really did finish the series but maybe I'll keep going as a belated thing.
