Make-up and Insecurity.


Make-up is not about vanity or narcissism; it is about masquerading insecurity and enhancing confidence.

I have dark hyperpigmentation underneath both of my eyes; a build up of melanin under the skin. This is common amongst Asian skin tones and many experience this around the sides of the mouth. The hyperpigmentation is not caused by a lack of sleep or a bad diet, it is something that I have no control over. I have spent years attempting to reduce their appearance, but they are two permanent rings that both circle and cover my eye area. I also have deep-set eyes which are positioned deeper into the skull, causing the brow bone to appear more prominent. The combination of hyperpigmentation and deep-set eyes causes my eyes to appear bruised, almost as if they are sinking into my face.

Branches of The Same Old Tree.


It's amazing how much changes, even when we think it's all the same. It's only when you put everything together that you notice the evolution of self.

The Art of Remembering.

Our memories distort people.

We only extract fragments that we want to remember, whether that is through solely recalling trauma or repressing the negative occurrences. We don’t remember people as they were. We recall them in the way that we want to see them, even when they change. 

However, people do not live and exist as the tangible characters in our memory. Everyone moves forward and therefore we have to formulate new memories to override the old ones. Nothing is as you remember it because everything in the universe evolves.
