I had a little idea a few weeks ago, I don’t know if this has ever been done before, atleast I can’t find anything like this on the web!
I think of myself as a creative person, I love sitting down and just let the flow start. Sometimes I draw, write, do my makeup, play on photoshop or take pictures/videos or sing, I just love doing anything creative. A few months ago felt very uncreative unfortunately, I hadn’t done any type of makeup,drawn or done anything creative for a few weeks and I was getting sick of it, when I don’t have time to do these things I get more stressed and anxious (and do I need that in my life…uhmn no!).
So I thought about what could I do that would get my creative brain to start working again….Colours! when I see colour combinations, or multi coloured items somewhere I instantly start thinking “I wonder if I can paint that on a canvas or do as a makeup look?” and the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of creativity are colours! I want to start a series, or a challenge/ tag… whatever, of colours. Each week I will create a makeup look where the dominant colour is in the colour song and write a blog about it, of course I will film a video too, just for fun ;). The makeup looks can be however I want, everyday wear, Fashion, art, minimalistic whatever floats my boat. I created a hashtag on Instagram for this Series/Tag/Challenge so If you want to try this series hashtag with #ItsTheColourSeries and #ItsTheColourSeriesYellow (next week will be red instead of yellow) so I can check out your creations!
Today we are working with yellow! my absolute favourite colour at the moment, which is weird because when I was younger I absolutely hated this colour, I thought it was ugly AF! but now I just can’t get enough of it, its such a happy and bright colour.
I wanted to do something that was wearable, because you don’t really see people walking around weraing yellow makeup, gold yes but never yellow, atleast I never see that! So I sat down turned my camera on and started doing my thang!
