5 Ways Wearing Makeup Makes You Feel MORE Beautiful
While I encourage you to read the full article, the main themes in a nutshell are that makeup stops you from accepting your uniqueness, you are trying to look like someone else, it’s vain, looking at yourself in the mirror every morning makes you criticise yourself, that makeup wearers are duped into thinking they ‘need’ to wear makeup by the makeup companies, and are too insecure to accept their flaws go without it.
Looking beautiful is very subjective, but feeling beautiful is much more about what’s on the inside. So here are my five ways makeup makes you feel MORE beautiful:
1. Me Time – Trying to love yourself in this world is hard, so is taking the time each day to dedicate to you. It’s not vain and it’s not selfish, it’s important; a lot of people get so caught up in a busy life, work, kids etc, that they don’t prioritise making time for doing what they love. It could be sitting down with a good book, knitting a scarf, going to get a massage, or whatever it is that makes you feel good. For me, it’s sitting at my dresser and doing my makeup.
2. Creative Outlet – Why should putting a paintbrush to paper be considered art, but putting a makeup brush to your skin not? Ok so I’m not a makeup artist by profession, nor do I create particularly extravagant looks, but sitting down with an eye shadow palette and creating a look each day is good fun and something I’ve got better with over time. I feel good about that.
I hope you enjoyed this post, it’s something a bit different from me, and I’d love to hear your thoughts.
