I have long been keeping it quiet but now it's time for me to speak out and be heard. I know that I have a lot to offer if only I would let people know that I am, indeed, capable of doing such things. I can handle bigger responsibilities but it won't materialize until I voice it out and start claiming it. Waiting is good but we also need to step out and take the initiative. I was scared, at first, but I need to realize that if I will hold on to what scares me, I won't be able to go anywhere. I need to take the risk take the first step.

HOW I DID IT:
I started off with a pump of the L’Oreal le teint True Match in Nude Amber disposed at the back of my hand and, using my fingers, applying it onto my face and blending it. I used another half pump to cover further blemishes and blended it, again. To set my foundation, I used the Nichido Bronzing Powder in GO Bronze for some glittery and glimmering effect.
For my eyes, I used the : Ever Bilena Color Pencil in Brown to line my brows then smudged it with a brow brush. Then, I used the ELF Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara to set it and keep it tamed. For my eye color, I used the SanSan CYO Eyeshadow in Deep Earth Brown for my lids, the SanSan CYO Eyeshadow in Ash Gray for my crease and the SanSan CYO Eyeshadow in Golden Chiffon for the inner lids. Then, I lined my lids with the SanSan Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Black and the SanSan Kohl Eyeliner in Black for my waterline. Then, I curled my lashes and applied the Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Waterproof in Brownish Black on them.
For the final touches, I used the SanSan Cheek Blusher in Rosy Blush on my cheeks and the Nanny Rose’s Queen Bee Lip Balm in Four Slices of Raspberry Cheesecake on my lips followed by the SanSan Long Wearing Lip Sheer in Peach Glow.
I used to be intimidated even though it appears like I'm really confident. I used to feel like I'm not good enough; but if I want to move forward and grow up, I need to step out of my comfort zone and initiate the changes I'd want in my life. If you're still scared to stand up for yourself, keep in mind that nothing good will ever come out if you let yourself stagnate. It's about time we show the world that we're meant to shine!
