I Think She Betta Do! 

After I spent yesterday considering my usage of spoons I decided to spend today being decidedly more selective with my spoon usage and being more selective with my activities. Low and behold some of these things seemed to coincide! 

I love to be creative, especially with make up, especially on others. So while I gave my friend an ear to bend today after her doctors appointment she gave me her head to play around with! I don’t think we stopped smiling and I’m positive we outdid Kenna Kitten on her sass meter. 

I am definitely not used to Afro hair; Kitten here has a nice mix of cauc and afro realness and she had some warm blonde ends. So we slapped on some Live Ultra Brights purple on the pre-lightened bits with a moisture depositing conditioner mixed in because, no-t-no-shade, those ends were fried; ain’t no thing but a crispy chicken wing! Then topped that off with an all-over pro-v conditioning treatment and a sleek blow dry! 

  
After that I did a quick make-up look. Seriously, her skin is beautiful, she needs no base what so ever! I created some subtle purple smokey eyes with my Make Up Revolution I ❤️ Passion and Salvation: Give Them Nightmares palettes, sticking to the purples. I kept the darker shades and a pop of purple irredeccent shadow in the inner and outer corners of the lid then put a light purple shimmer on the centre lid. I drew the purple irredeccent colour onto the lower waterline then blended in some darker purple shadow in the lower outer corner. I added a sweep of mascara and a slamming purple lip from Revlon; Va-va-violet and Violet Lip Lava by Cover Girl! Little flush of Lancôme Blush Subtil Rose Paradis to bring out those gorgeous cheeks and…done! 

  
LOOK at that smile! Selfish selflessness was achieved! 

My girl, Kitty, is having a hard time of it lately and I am happy that we could give each other a boost today. She didn’t need any make-over at all. She is one of the most beautiful women I know in real life. 

  

  
See. 

But sometimes it pays to have some focused attention, taking care of something that is often forgotten; the physical body. There is a reason why skin to skin contact it so important to babies; it is the most visceral demonstration of love and appreciation. Taking care of someone else’s physical presence is just as important as listening to them. It allows you to demonstrate a level of intimacy that can’t really be shared any other way. Consider this when you reach out to hug your friend when you see them after a while or when you grip their hand when you comfort them or they comfort you. Doing make up and hair requires focus on the individual, every face is different and every person has a different threshold for touch. It is a very intimate experience, someone trusting you with their skin and their physical appearance. Some say that it is relaxing, that it feels nice to be preened; and so each brush stroke is more precise. Some find it quite stressful because they’re not sure what they’re getting or if it will look right so they may need gentle direction and softer brushes and more reassurance. 

I’m not saying that doing someone’s make-up is going to save their life; but it will certainly show them that they are worthy of your attention and gentle touch. Baring in mind Kitty is the same girl that I told to grow a pair of balls and take control because she better fucking werk her sass if she wanna live her life to the fullest. Hey….I am a fan of the tough love! I can’t be a softy all the time! 
I shall see you anon,

P.
