Lately, I’ve been continuously asked what foundation I use through comments and emails, and while I definitely don’t mind the question, I do hope you guys know I edit my photos, so don’t be fooled. I’ve never really had an issue with acne, but my skin is dry, I have creases in my neck and forehead, my cheeks are as red as tomatoes if I’m not wearing foundation, and I have freckles on my nose, but those are all rarely seen because of the editing. I was sent an email by someone who thought you guys would really like the message in Colbie Caillat’s new song that’s coming out, where she encourages us to embrace our flaws. (Which you can view on the Snapverse App.) Now it may be hypocritical of me to be promoting that message, while telling you all that I edit my photos (even though that may be obvious,) but I really do agree with her message. I don’t edit because I haven’t embraced my flaws, I edit because that’s just how photography goes. You play with lighting and such to make the photo more appealing to viewers. Trust me, I’ve gone out in public without makeup plenty of times, and half the time I’m actually wearing sweats and a tank top. I’m not really this done up all the time. So don’t ever compare yourself to the photos you see on the internet, because 99.9% of the time, the photos are edited.
This dress originally had a pretty high neckline and I thought it looked so weird on me, so I cut it to make it into an off the shoulder dress. I would show you a before and after photo, but I’ve had this dress for a few years, and when I cut it, I never in a million years would have thought I would one day be blogging about it. lol.
