One night, I went swimming under a moon so bright you would swear it was dawn at 12am. I was naked in the warm ocean surrounded by friends. On the beach was a crowd of about 100 people, all getting high off the vibrant moonlight. As I emerged from the waves like a mermaid, I saw this really hot guy. So I walked straight up to him (me naked, him fully clothed) and said:
“Excuse me, I can’t seem to find my clothes. Would you be so kind as to help me look?”
(SIDE NOTE: I knew exactly where my clothes were the whole time.)
After making that brazen move I felt more radiant than ever before in my life. Not because of how I looked, but because of how I felt. It is what I deem to be True Beauty.
You know, the kind of beauty that happens when you take a risk and your cheeks flush. Or when a friend hears you are sick and brings you flowers, which are beautiful to begin with, but when laden with love are downright sacrosanct.
But that’s not really the way we approach beauty in our culture. In fact, our understanding of the joy it can bring to our lives has been whittled down to the width of a razor. These fucked up beliefs about beauty hold us back in ways we don’t even comprehend. They limit our power, joy, pleasure, creativity and confidence.
It makes you want to throw your hands up and abandon the beauty industry all together. But don’t throw your false lashes on a bonfire just yet, my love.
A simple shift of perspective can change everything.
For example, think of how many times in your life you have mindlessly put on lipstick. What if lipstick was a prayer of tribute to that which shapes the expression of your truth through words – i.e. your lips? What if applying the color red was not just about making your lips pop, but about the fact that red is the only adornment befitting of these portals of your power and passion?
I once had a boyfriend who said to me “I usually don’t like makeup on women. But it’s not the makeup on you that is beautiful, it’s the look on your face when you wear it.”
This was a grand compliment. It let me know he was seeing more than my prettiness, he was seeing my ART.
There is an artist in all of us. But for most of us that artist is hidden and starving.
It’s time for that to change RIGHT NOW.
In the Beauty Queen course, which starts this weekend, I teach you all the “rules” of a great beauty ritual; how to draw straight eyeliner, whether or not eye creams are worth the money, how to do a complete at-home spa like a professional, etc. But it’s not the rules that interest me.
It’s breaking the rules that really turns me on, and I want to give you the education and permission that will make your creativity SOAR.
Your ritual should be one of joy, fun, delight, creativity and EMPOWERMENT.
After all, you do it every single day of your life.
Together, let’s put the power of beauty back where it belongs, in your own hands.
Enrollment closes in just a few days, the time is now.
