Monday Motivation: Shifting Focus

You get to choose what thoughts you plant in your mind.
What you plant you harvest, what you dedicate time in you learn, what you stay focused on will grow.

It's not always easy, but when something bad happens, pause,
take a deep breath, and try shifting focus to the good in front of you.

One of the best parts of working as a makeup artist is definitely in the people you get to meet! This is Laura, who I got to know last year during the Semifinals of the Miss Finland competition (she participated in the competition again this year - and guess what, she ended up as the 1st runner up!). She's one of the sweetest persons and since we bonded at the first shoots, it's always been a pleasure to get together and function as her makeup artist, or have her as my model whenever I want to test some new products and looks..

For this look I created a bright and glowing summer makeup, as the past season was all about dewy skin and playful details. This look is really easy to create yourself, focus on the fresh faced base and add a pop of color to the eyes - either by applying the color all the way over the lid or to the inner corner of the eye - or create a exaggerated eyeliner shape. You choose, the eye area is really the place to be playful (...and still is as our new everyday accessory is covering the rest of the face)!
