I had already done the bloodied-up eye when I decided to make this more than just practicing my bruise makeup. To contrast one side that is hurt and painful, I chose to make the Paris side glittery, beautiful and bright. That's the Paris we all know and love-- the romantic city of lights.
Like everyone else, I was horrified and saddened by terrorist attack in Paris. I remember being in Singapore when I heard about the Boston Marathon bombings that occurred... and the total shock and sadness that followed. I cannot imagine what it is like for the people of Paris or my French friends currently hoping their friends and family are safe. This blog isn't a place for me to discuss my political views, but I hope whoever is responsible is found and put to justice. To target a city that represents brotherhood, liberty and independence is a disgusting act.
I also hope this doesn't offend anyone. I know political correctness is of utmost importance these days... but I wanted to do something creative and respectful. Also, I realise the French flag is backwards on my lips. The camera flipped the photo... Whoops.
