New Hashtag for 2014 #TeamEitherWay (via @MissDrini)

So when I posted my before and after pic yesterday, I had no idea it would start something 😜 I’m sure many wonder why makeup artists post before and after pics of their work……it’s b/c it not only shows the skill level of the artist but also how future clientele can potentially look, made up. With contouring and highlighting alone, you can conceal problematic areas that are often time the brunt of many women’s insecurities. But it’s also important to feel comfortable in your natural state because beauty isn’t makeup.

Sooooo…..makeup artists or makeup enthusiasts, if you want to post your before and after pic, use hashtag #teameitherway

S/o to these ladies for posting your before and after pic…..you all are GORG, major group hug!!

Unlike life on many reality shows, most regular people don't go to sleep with a full face of makeup on each night (i.e The Kardashians, Real Housewives, etc...). One of my favorite makeup artists, Miss Drini, started a new hashtag called #TeamEitherWay showcasing her flawless execution as a makeup artist, along with her natural, makeup free beauty at the end of the day.

Why is this so awesome? Well, because it's easy to see all of the faces on Instagram beat to perfection and forget that while beautiful, it's really a transformation with the art of makeup. This isn't a rant about how makeup is bad, and no... I'm not about to go off about folks that use #NoFilter #NoMakeup while having a filter AND makeup lol... but just celebrating the fun we girls (and some guys) can have with beauty products, but give balance and perspective that no, I didn't wake up like this (Sorry Beyonce).

This also comes on the heels of an insightful post and YouTube video from blogger Shannon T. Boodram on the effects Instagram is having on self-esteem. Definitely check it out and share your thoughts using the hashtag #HowToLookLikeMe.
