What Inspires You?

I have yet to find my inspiration, you guys!! I don’t know what has happened with me! I used to wear different looks every day, try new things with my hair, and have a different, crazy nail polish on every other day! Now, I am lucky to trade out neutral colors on my oh, so boring neutral eye looks every day, even flat iron my hair, or paint clear on my nails! Woah…there is SERIOUSLY something wrong with me!

I have spent countless nights on the computer searching for photos that may inspire me, and I have found TONS of gorgeous shots of models with “normal” makeup AND editorial style shots. No matter how many of these photos I save, I just still can’t find any inspiration to carry out a killer look for all my YT subs! I want to bust out those killer, eye catching designs that people can’t help but click, but for some reason, the color combos just don’t come as naturally to me anymore. Who knows? Maybe it is the change of season, the cold weather, or all the rain we have been having, but I am seriously tired of not posting at least one new look a week!

All I know, is that I used to pick out my clothes every night before work. Then, I would go to my vanity and pick out 3-5 different colors that I thought would complement, not necessarily match, my outfit to use the following day. NOW, I keep the same old boring neutral palettes and quads in my makeup bag and can’t break free! Right now, to me, switching things up is wearing purple!!! Hell, I used to LOVE purple eyes, but to me, on me, they just look like another boring ole look!!
So, I wonder what it is that inspires you? Are there photos you keep archived, is it your surroundings…what? How do you get yourself in the mood to do something different with your hair or makeup? Do you purchase new things, do you go chat with the MUA at the makeup counter…something different?? I suppose I am looking for help from my friends…YOU GUYS!!! If there are any color combinations you can’t live without, tips or tricks that get you through the day, anything you would like to share…bring it on!! Thanks everyone! You guys mean the world to me!

I absolutely love rainbows and summer field flowers. I know that sounds cheesy but flowers combined green and pink, blues and reds, purple and golds, which are some of my favorite combo's. I like model picture's for reference sometimes but most of the time it has been nature color code inspired. And I would have to say tattoo art inspired. just depends on the day. But that's what inspires me.

I know how you feel! I've been in a rut lately. I used to do a different look everyday. I would always pick out different color combos and never repeated the same thing in a week. Now, I'm stuck on neutrals. I will look at my colors and choose a color, but it always looks boring or too neutral. I don't know what it is. I'm usually all about some bright blues, greens, yellows, etc. It's just now there right now. I barely do my makeup everyday like I used to. I think I've done my face once in the past week or so. UGH. I hope I get out of this funk soon. I keep buying and swapping makeup but I'm not using it. I think I need some inspiration, too.

Toshiam: I hope you find your inspiration soon as well! I am going to work on trying to put up a picture that may inspire everyone else as well as myself. Maybe post these once or twice a week in between normal posts. Maybe they will help you! :)
