UNFILTERED, UNAPOLOGETIC // Beauty work with makeup artist, TEJAL –
Unfiltered, Unapologetic, Uncensored – that is what we all are at our very core, folks.
Consider the fact that maybe… just maybe… beauty and worth aren’t found in a makeup bottle or a salon-fresh hairstyle, or a fabulous outfit.
Maybe our sparkle comes from somewhere deeper inside, somewhere so pure and authentic and REAL, that it doesn’t need gloss or polish or glitter to shine.
There are people in this world like me: people who know exactly who they are, what they like, what they dislike, what they stand for, and what they will not stand for. Call it stubbornness, call it confidence, call it passion, call it self-awareness – I call it being “unapologetically yourself”.— x —
I have learnt that being yourself comes at a price:
- People can label you easily.
- People make assumptions about you.
- People may call you hard-headed or stubborn.
- People may not appreciate your confidence.
Now, listen up! I have good news and bad news for you: the bad news is that it is not easy to be you. You will have altercations with people, face resistance, feel disillusioned, lose friends. And notice that people will try and sometimes succeed at bringing you down.
Now the good news is that you are a minority. Most people in this world will not stand up in a room of 100 people who all believe in the same thing and dare say “I disbelieve" or “I disagree”. And THAT, my friends is the most powerful thing. Do not let the world smother the fire under your passion. Being Unapologetically Yourself comes with a price. Always pay up!
I have decided to transition towards writing about a lot more than just fashion, beauty, lifestyle or trends. I want to discuss and spread awareness about things that some people are fighting. My new material will talk about self confidence, my own experiences, mental health, and other real issues we face, not simply the issues we face when deciding what to wear every morning.
This was a beauty shoot I did for the makeup artist, TEJAL. She is a brand new, up and coming artist in Hyderabad. And this shoot was perfect to highlight this topic. Tejal has started her own brand under the name “ Makeup By Tejal” She is a multi-talented, ambitious, and very motivated creator. Faces from her vast canvas; she does all kinds of makeup so be sure to contact her for all your makeup needs, especially since this is the festivities season already!
You need to be festival ready 😉 .
