BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
It seems like everywhere we look, people are wearing makeup. Everyone from Hollywood stars to the baristas at your local coffee joint can be seen wearing it. There are thousands of beauty products out there and even more possibilities of what to do with them.
So, the question is, does makeup equate to beauty? Is there a reason why everyone seems to be wearing makeup? Do you need to wear makeup in order to be beautiful?
NO! True beauty comes from feeling confident and proud of yourself.
Makeup can be a great form of self-expression, with your face quite literally being a palette of possibility. Plus, with all the YouTube tutorials and beauty vloggers out there, there’s no shortage of inspiration. Makeup has transformed into a new art form, and if recreating Van Gogh’s Starry Night on your eyelids sounds fun to you, by all means, go for it!
However, if you can barely draw on paper (let alone an eyelid!), don’t worry. You are beautiful with or without extravagant makeup!
One great thing about makeup is that you can use it to whatever extent makes you feel the most confident. If you like just a little mascara, that’s beautiful! You want to wear a full-face with fun colors? Radiant! All-natural? Stunning!
If you choose to wear makeup, there’s no such thing as too little or too much. The amount of makeup you choose to wear (if any!) is up to you, not anyone else.
There’s no magic formula that will tell you how to be beautiful, and there’s no universal standard. What’s beautiful to you may not be beautiful to someone else, and that’s okay. The only thing that matters is that you feel beautiful—nobody else’s opinion matters. Just keep doing you!
