Zodiac Elemental Tutorial: Earth (Virgo, Taurus, Capricorn)

Going to be honest, I almost wasn’t even going to post this on here. I filmed and re-shot an earth look for this series about six times. Each one turned out worse than the one I made before. And none of them I liked. I don’t know why, I love nature. Nature relaxes me after a long day. I love trees and flowers, but for the life of me I could not come up with a single idea for this series on the Earth Zodiac signs (Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn). I even looked up other looks to get inspiration. But nothing. Then I saw a tweet from Sarah McGonagall (who is an amazingly talented makeup artist) that had nothing to do with this series but got me to revisit this element and try one last time instead of just settling for one of the looks:

There’s always a moment during each project where I break down. It can be a fleeting wave of exhaustion, or it could be a million things falling apart at once. So I’ve decided to start collecting these failures on Polaroid as a reminder that success cannot exist without struggle.

And it’s true. Sometimes things just don’t work out. Some looks are just doomed to fail but if you give up on them then you aren’t going to come up with anything unique or halfway decent. Now I don’t think my Earth look by any means is the best thing in the world but I also don’t hate it like all of the other ones. And if I want to get anywhere with this series I have to call it at some point. This one I’m not embarrassed about and don’t actually mind posting on social media.
