Last week, on one particular day, I received quite a few compliments. People said I looked good, rosy, happy and there was something different about me. And I HATED it. For some reason when I receive a compliment, be it about my hair or my new outfit, I immediately think "So they think I look shit the rest of the time" or "are they taking the piss?" I know I cant be the only one.
For some reason, young girls have a real issue with receiving compliments and we really shouldn't be, Someone has gone out of their way at that particular moment to say something nice about you - why do we immediately assume people are making fun of us?
I've decided that from now on, any compliment I receive, instead of brushing it off I'm going to embrace it, After all, if something is taking the piss, you shouldn't really value that persons opinion about you anyway.
This particular day, It was this combination that I was wearing that made me look good. I knew from the moment I slapped this on in the morning that I looked different. This simple combo somehow brightened my complexion AND my outlook on life that day. Who knew a pink lip balm could completely alter my mood.
The ELF Powder blusher in Pink Passion is one of my all time favorites. Whilst it looks quite a shocking in the pan, on the cheeks it gives a gorgeous flush of color - a real healthy glow. Adding the Pixi Lip Balm in Ripe Raspberry to the mix really enhanced a health and happy glow.
Nothing really drastic, just a simple yet stunning combo.
This is something I'll be wearing much more from now on, cause hey, who doesn't like being told they look good?
Well, it might take some getting used to, but I'll give it a go!
