Finally–my Politically Pretty submission. It is no surprise that I love having FUN with make-up. While I am conservative (uhhh, not politically) throughout the week because of work, I enjoy nothing more than doing crazy, funky and out of this world looks.
Now the story behind my look: It just makes sense to show tribute to Barack Obama. While I can’t pretend that I agree with every statement that he has said, I would be remiss if I did not show my pride for this man. HE is what I dreamed about but thought would never happen. To think that little Black girls may grow up in the White House…I just—can’t express how happy this makes me.
And no, I don’t think Obama can save America. No, I don’t like him just because he’s Black. To be honest, I have never been extremely patriotic; I think it’s because I know my history. But that’s a blog post for RoaR blog. 😉
Anyway…that was the inspiration behind my look. And since I love the logo, I decided to run with that.
