extremely impressive or daunting; inspiring great admiration, apprehension, or fear.“the awesome power of the atomic bomb”10 awesome Instagram posts I discovered from my feed today.
The first time Alan Macias (@alannized) applied any makeup was only two years ago. “It was something I always wanted to do, but I was very scared of going out and buying makeup,” Alan, now 18, explains. “To actually have a bottle of BB crème in my hand was a pretty amazing thing.” Orange County, California-based Alan uses approachable and playful videos to break down his everyday routine and special looks. He is proud to be a man in the industry. “For a long time, I felt trapped and scared to be myself. Once I started putting myself out there, I started to realize how much better you feel about yourself, how free you feel,” Alan says. “At the end of the day, what you’re doing should make you happy.” For more from beauty creators, follow @beautycon, which will hold the fourth annual #BeautyconLA next month.
