Act I: To thine own self be true by AliWithAnEye Act I: To thine own self be true by AliWithAnEye
"To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man." - William Shakespeare Hamlet Act 1, scene 3, 78–82

This line from Hamlet pertains to a lot of different things in life. But I decided to focus on something that is a part of my daily life, and the lives of most of the women I know. Makeup, hair dye, etc is all a part of the mask we put on to become a character that we believe is a better version of ourselves. It makes us feel good. But is it really who we are? What are we trying to hide?

It is an illusion that exists only in your mind, a false reality that feeds off of your insecurities.
Be true to yourself, stop hiding who you truly are and be free. You are beautiful.

Personally I love this! From the make up brushes to the dream catcher everything here to me just pops!

It's very different but the impact is there. You look at this picture and it's just like wow.

Forgive me if I dont know what to really say but I think this is an excellent picture and you did a very nice job with the placement of the items and making it stand out. The colors in everything I like as well. I also love the light effect I can kinda see at the top of the picture. Nicely done for sure.
What do you think?

Great concept and fantastic execution, at first glance it seems a collection of artists tools, which, really,is what they are...as one of my favorite musicians once said ..."women are the only works of art"
