In my opinion some people have very weird opinion on makeup and to be honest I’ve been inspired by those people to write this post. So thank you, haters.
First of all I see makeup as form of art. I like doing my make up, experiment with colors, looks, makeup brands, brushes… And some people see makeup as wearing mask and being fake. In that case I could say that we all are fake. Even when we wear clothes. We wear it to impress others, otherwise we would wear same clothes being alone at home as we wear in public. But for example I wear loungewear when I’m alone. Because that’s how it is. We say we don’t care but why you don’t wear your pyjamas outside the house? Because you do care.
I feel the same about make up. Expect that sometimes I do my make up even I don’t need to go anywhere. Why? Because it’s fun! I like draw black swan on myself or do pinup girl look when I’m alone. I like to experiment.
I believe that girls are so lucky that they can do they makeup. For me different makeup gives different moods. When I wear dark lips I feel more bad-ass and when I give myself full glam I’m more confident, when I do my lips and eyebrows but leave my eyes untouched I feel more bohemian.
(it’s not me by the way, I just like her makeup 🙂 )
Let’s talk about confidence. It’s not that I’m not confident without make up but it definitely boost my confidence. And I don’t see nothing wrong with that. I feel insecure about my dark under eyes and about uneven skin color. I feel so much more confident when I conceal it. What’s wrong with being confident?
Small things like putting red lips on does (unconsciously) influence to the way we talk, we move, we sit or walk and it actually benefits to our social life.
I see my face as a canvas and myself as an artist. What about you?
