I set fire to the demon

I - This lyric shares my thoughts on life, that when something negative occurs, change it around and make it into a positive for yourself.  I think about strength and power you can create for yourself and how you can rise up from what can seem to be the worst moment in your life.  I immediately knew that I wanted to create a phoenix inspired makeup look to represent this empowerment.  The preview here shows the nail art which I created, which is a mixture of red and gold glitter in a flame effect.  This was one of my main reasons why I wanted to create this makeup look, but I just couldn't find the right image, so unfortunately for me, they never made the final cut.  It takes courage to set fire to the rain, and although the literal meaning seems impossible, the subtext behind this is possible.

J - Onto a non makeup related preview now and this is an image of the MUA Heaven and Earth palette which I used nearly completely for this look.  For those of you who are unaware of MUA, this brand can be bought from Superdrug and the single eye shadows cost £1.  I own a large amount of makeup from brands such as MAC, NARS, and Illamasqua, but I just couldn't afford to keep spending over £10 for an eye shadow if all I was going to do was to create these looks and wiping them off after.  This is when I thought lets go cheap, and as Superdrug often does a 3 for 2 offer, there even cheaper than £1!  They really are a fantastic buy and the only downside is that there aren't more shades yet!
