Sleeplessly Yours


Champagne for my real friends,

Real pain for my sham friends.



Around 14 more days until you arrive, we really did the hardest part of the waiting but 14 more days will still feel like forever

“What am I talking about? Come on, Eff. I know you; you know me. We dated. We’ve fucked in every sense of the word. We are Cook and Effy. The fucking world knows us.”

People usually say that make up is here to turn ugly girls into beautiful ones, or to hide flaws, or to conceal whatever there is to conceal. I disagree. Make up is not here to hide anything, or if so, you’re using it the wrong way. Make up is here to emphasize your beauty, the beauty that was given to you when you were born. And there is no beauty without flaws. There is no beauty without imperfections or scars. Make up is here to make you more confident with the flaws you used to hate. And instead of randomly telling people “be yourself”, we should tell them “learn how to love yourself”. Learn how to love what makes you unique, the more and the less beautiful features. The human features. I love my big forehead. I love my crooked teeth. I love my big messy hair. I love the weird scars I have all over my body. I love that I’m not a 6. And I also love the big dark rings under my eyes on exhausting days where no amount of concealer could make me look like I’m not a cast for a zombie movie. This is who I am and this is how I was born. And this is not superficial whatsoever, by using make up, to have discovered a way to also love the flaws. And I disagree with people saying that girls taking selfies are suddenly full of themselves. Why should we be ashamed of loving ourselves for once, of being finally confident for a change, and also confident to show it, after years of self-hate, after years of TV shows and magazines and beauty-related ads that so wrongly dictated us what it was to be truly beautiful. Perfection is like February 30th. Embrace yourself and love everything you were given, your flaws as much as the rest.
