The best thing about taking photos of every look you do is that you have the ability to go back in time and reminisce (good or bad…).  Not only will you stumble upon some looks where you’re like, “What was I THINKING?!”, but looks that make you go, “I need to do that again!”  You start seeing how you’ve improved, how you’ve gotten better at certain areas of your makeup.  It’s exciting and fun, and it really does make me feel more encouraged to keep going and growing and trying my heart out.

I would love to have you all look back on your makeup history and tell me how you’ve changed, how you’ve improved. If you have photos, even better, but alas, I know most of us are not nearly as camera shameless as I ;)  Please share your stories as we reflect back today!
