The objective of today’s post is to show you how makeup changes the way you look and feel. Throughout past makeup posts, it is easily seen how I strive to create soft and natural looks. The reason I do this kind of look is to show you that everyone has blemishes and features we don’t like, but that doesn’t mean we should hide them. We should learn to love and accept them because they are a part of who we are as individuals.
I know many of us wear makeup because we fear we are not attractive enough without it. God forbid the guy we have a crush on sees our bare face! I want to inspire and encourage you to change how you view yourself. I get it— Every time you think you are accepting yourself, you see a video, picture or another human being with a flawless face, perfect body, beautiful hair, or even a tiny pointy nose− basically everything you think you don’t have. In that moment, we start this comparative thought process, and we begin to lose confidence in ourselves. We start thinking we need to look like the other women we see because they must have it better—That is not necessarily true.
When you see yourself without makeup, how do you feel? Do you feel good about yourself? Confident? If you don’t, don’t worry it’s a process to feel that way. How about when you wear makeup? Do you find yourself wearing more than you need? Do you find that you are covering certain features about yourself because you want to fit in to a certain standard of beauty? Next time you find yourself wanting to cover up certain features, try to refrain yourself and add less concealer or foundation. Allow yourself to feel relaxed without makeup. Try to get to where you can easily go outside feeling confident about yourself as if you were to go out with makeup.
With or without makeup let’s begin to see the beauty that is within ourselves.
So, that more women can benefit from these posts don’t forget to follow or share!
