I CAN CARRY YOU BUT NOT YOUR GHOSTS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

what’s up makeupandthecity, I’m so sorry I’ve been, well – what seems as a long time and I won’t let it happen again!

“Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.”

Ok – so it’s been a little bit so where do I touch down first, I’m going to leave some things out that just are not that important or really, somethings take time more or less. I’ve said this to many time by now so it’s silly to say it past this, I love recklessly and fully and I cannot help, I wouldn’t ever try to act as if I understand something that I don’t and I’ve had two things lately happen that I thought I understood in two different situations sadly, and one I had no idea that you could rip a $20.00 and use each half for $10.00 and secondly I don’t know love as well as I thought I did, I though at my age this would be different, I’ve always been cold, I guess you could say – choosing to not care and when its done its done, what happens when you see the mistakes that were made? what happens when you never meant to hurt the person you love? what happen when you have so much to say – still.

It does help to be with someone who just wants me there when its most comfortable for him, and when we do see each other I am see-through.  The thing is that sure, we might just be one person on this massive planet but we are all worth it, and it takes the smallest show of love to change someone’s day, maybe even their week! Love is powerful, and you’ll all see I’m right – make sure that if you have something more to say, then say it, if you can’t walk away, there is a reason.

Time won’t stop pushing up forward – or we feel like we are in a constant state of free-fall, I made someone a promise that I would be there to catch him if he needed it. It really sucks the way we all are now a days, the childish games, being lethargic, knowing with one word you can destroy me and with saying the words I needed to hear I would be yours forever. I am on my knees for you, arms cross and head down.

used to fill my life with people who were weak or hurting and who needed someone to fill that void – I would hurt and use people to get to where I wanted to be in life. I was a monster. But I’ve learned from my past and my life is now filled with strong, amazing and loving people – people I would bet any amount of money on that when I fall I will have them there to catch me, strip me naked with your words, hate and opinions about whatever you want – keep talking, keep checking my blog, keep trying to bring me down and all you’re doing is becoming the person that you hated so much to begin with. When you talk about me, more people know my name. When you keep checking and borderline stalking me and what I’m doing, it’s more views for me. Every nightmare needs influence so I’m asking you and everyone who use the voice that you have to try to hurt or bring anyone down? Why give in to hate when it’s so much easier to give in to love and see that mistakes are made and like I said I’m not looking for anyone’s forgiveness because I don’t need it – I have the most amazing life, I have been so blessed from the highest high to the lowest low, in heartbreak came makeupandthecity, I learned to channel my heartbreak, sadness and anger to creating something that over time became something more then I could ever ask for a given me so many opportunities, if I even had the amount of time to focus on your life or stalk what you’re doing with it, whoa the free time you must have – for anyone who has made it this far, live your life for yourself and don’t allow hate to win, and remember that second chances are rare and we are all beautiful and unique and with our words and with our hate we cause a ripple effect that is clear to see. so I guess I’m asking you; why isn’t it clear to see for the love that we give? 

I will take responsibility for my action and the choices I’ve made in my life. Will you?

I really feel like I’ve know him forever like he was always meant to be in my life, we were meant to meet. Grow together. Touch. Make love. Explore the world and allow each other to make mistakes and grow from those mistakes. There is nothing unbecoming about this man, he’s so sensitive yet masculine. He’s gone through hard times with accepting who he is and I’m more then happy to show him the world and that being gay does not define you. It is not a label stitched into your skin. In a way I almost want to thank him for just always being there and being so understanding and for treating me as I treat him like a man. I’ve never loved anyone like this and it has to be put out there.

To him if he reads this : It’s going to sound like a total cliché I know but when we start talking it’s like there is no time, time stands still and there is only you and I. I think you knew you had me from the moment we first started talking truly that was the moment I knew you were going to take my heart. As time will push us forward as it always will, I will continue to fall in love, respect and be amazed by you. With out a doubt my life has been so much better with you in it,

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way.

It’s been a while since I sat down a just said hey and asked you guys – how are you? I really hope that you’re all doing wonderful. What a crazy couple of months so many positive steps forward and some well, steps I could go back and hit the ever wishing redo button – come on, you know what I’m talking about, that button that we all wish we had that we could smash and REDO!

Sadly, I wish smash that button so hard that I would shatter myself and who would be there to pick up the pieces? The best thing to honestly try to remember is that pain is only temporary, really if you think about it, no matter what the pain is, there is so much that we are, as humans, designed to handle without other brains just shutting off.

I guess, what I am saying in my own way is don’t stop smiling and stop and take a look around you for a minute, look at the sky, the beautiful city, town and stop thinking about the what if and start thinking about what you do have. Keep smiling – no matter what! always.
giphysmileEver look at a clock and be like oh its only two (2) hours longer, that’s nothing and another time two (2) hours can feel like two (2) days, time is a funny thing – sometimes it feels like we have to much time on our hands but in the end its always, there wasn’t enough time.

I’ve always said that when it comes to love there is never a regrettable experience because no matter what, you grow from it (good or bad) and you will always learn a lesson. Love is a funny thing – I seem to find someone fairly quickly also and truly I am not looking for it when it happen, I just always keep my heart open and its true what they say some it starts with a smile and a bite of the lip and then, you’re talking all the time, and taking it slow becomes a fast rollercoaster. I choose to be happy.
In short, shorty – I am happy.

Life is beautiful, the day, the night, maybe I’m different because I see grey at day but the night is full of color. I wish that I wasn’t so hard on myself and I could forgive myself for the mistakes I’ve made – it’s become very clear to me that sometimes I try so hard to not allow myself to make those same mistakes and to find the reasons why and why not I guess what I’m asking you is,

can you get to a future if your past is present?

MAKEUPANDTHECITY AFFILIATE CODES / PERFECT?

“you either got it, or you don’t, you either stand or fall”

hey makeupandthecity, what’s good?

I’m almost sure that there isn’t anyone out there that can’t relate to this, music can control your mood and help you gain perspective – I’ve learned early on that I’m different, I see things so much more clearly. I want something – nine (9) times out of ten (10) I will always get it, not to sound like a spoiled brat or anything because it’s not coming from a place of place of negativity, I just like you, work hard for what I want in life. I vividly remember someone telling me “wow do you have a horse shoe up your ass” and thinking back to it.. what do you think?

Do you believe that some people just have it easier then others, do you believe if you’re more attractive that you will get more in life then someone who isn’t attractive? but who the hell has the right to tell you that you are not beautiful, I’m so sorry for the world that we live in, and what we see as ‘perfect’ isn’t perfect at all.

Everyone wants to be perfect, but when perfection loses it’s meaning, how far will you go? What would you give up to be perfect?

HOW do you define a word without concrete meaning? To each his own, the saying goes, so WHY push to attain an ideal state of being that no two random people will agree is WHERE you want to be? Faultless. Finished. Incomparable. People can never be these, and anyway, WHEN did creating a flawless façade become a more vital goal than learning to love the person WHO lives inside your skin? The outside belongs to others. Only you should decide for you – WHAT is perfect. YOU tell me.

So moving on to something a little less intense and that is affiliate codes – please understand brands typically approach when you have 50k+ subscribers and the affiliate codes are for you! It’s for you to save money on products that I have tried and fully support and love, influencers most of the time WILL not give you a code to a brand that we do not support, and trust me we get offers which I will show you some examples of as we go.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ if you have questions please feel free to ask me about what I am paid and what I am making in commission off of these codes from your support – Another thing that I do want to point out is for advertisement on my blog, or social media we do sign legal contracts because we don’t all make the same amount. If I legally cannot talk about it – I can tell you that on a two day payment basis I do not accept offers that are not $1500.00+ when it comes to codes they are commission base and I can talk about it because we typically make the same amount – which I will be honest and tell you what I make off my commission of you using my affiliate code!

1) SMILE SIENCES
After years of struggling with porcelain staining and tooth sensitivity from in-office and over-the-counter teeth whitening products and procedures, Smile Sciences founders, Deanna Gardner and Andra Moore, were determined to create a formula that would offer powerful prescription-grade results, with no sensitivity, all while professionally whitening teeth and removing stains from caps, crowns, and porcelain veneers.

A98A8748_copy_e4d7af51-e2c6-4a27-a41e-624fd8ca6d11_1024x1024OH HELLO teeth whitening kit is actually the kit that I’m working with smile sciences with to incorporate a marketing strategy to include in every makeup artists, due to the fact the trays are washable and plug into a phone – it is more ideal then the original kit. (check out my original post MAKEUPANDTHECITY x SMILE SCIENCES) Unlike the commonly used 5 bulb led light, this model has 16 led bulbs making it powerful yet safe.

2) TOO FACED COSMETICS
Too Faced Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer Jerrod Blandino got his start behind the department store makeup counter in the mid ‘90s. He quickly realized that just a few minutes in the makeup chair could transform and empower his clients. He recognized that makeup is so much more than a little color on a woman’s face – it is an instant mood booster, a best friend, and a powerful ally.

TOO FACED is actually an affiliate of makeupandthecity so I am contracted by STREAMLINE to market advertising and products I love in ‘product of the month’ it isn’t about buying anything – it’s just ad space I am paid for. TOO FACED owns 20% of MAKEUPANDTHECITY.

3) MORPHE

Online and in store my code is MUTHECITY for 15% off everything except sale items and make 25% commission from your support.
Honestly MORPHE to me is really hit or miss, I accepted affiliantion with the company when I was using their brushes a lot.

4) ARTIS BRUSHES
Makeup applies more uniformly due to the CosmeFibre®. The uniform structure of this engineered fibre plus the tapered ends helps apply product more consistently than animal hair. Artis brushes on average have 3-10 times as many individual fibres as conventional brushes. More fibres do more work with every pass across the surface of the skin. For example, the Oval 10 Brush has over 250,000 individual fibres each with a microscopically small and soft tip.
