I have a solid group of friends from college that I consider my best friends. If you have a friend group like this, you’ll know what I mean when I say that no one else stacks up to this collection of people. Rarely do I go out of my way to reunite with friends, but I’m so anxious (in the best way) about our upcoming trip to Atlanta. We’re quite spread out across the country so it’s a big deal to be able to meet in one place. Thinking about this trip to Atlanta made me think of that Outkast album ATLien and I decided to create a galaxy inspired makeup look. That, and there’s a song by one of my favorite bands that repeatedly asks, “What’s another night on Mars? With friends like ours anywhere is home” (Another Night On Mars, The Maine). This group of people is one that can make anywhere feel like home, even the barren and faraway surface of Mars.
For full details on how I created this look and what products I used, be sure to visit my Instagram. I used a slew of eyeshadow palettes to achieve the purple hazy galaxy on my face as well as Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips in Echo Park, the perfect pinky nude.
Not only are galaxy-inspired looks beautiful to see, but I think they’re great reminders of how we find a sense of belonging within the vast and mysterious universe. Isn’t it pretty neat that we are able to find people who get us and love us for who we are in this mess of stardust?
Have you ever created a galaxy-inspired look? Or do you like creating fantasy/editorial makeup looks? I love seeing what others create; it’s always great inspiration for etching out my own creative urges. Let me know about your friend groups — it’s always refreshing to hear about wonderful friendships!
Romans 15: 7 Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
