Today I randomly decided to take pictures sans makeup (actually, I do have coverup + eyebrows, but sans eyes). I’ve always been pretty self concious about wearing bare eyes. I think it’s because there is a ton of emphasis on natural beauty.
I felt like I didn’t have natural beauty. I’m getting better now, I’m starting to not care. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not opposed to makeup AT ALL. I think girls are beautiful both with makeup and without. I love the art of makeup; I love how you can draw out your features. I enjoy doing my makeup every day. I particularly dislike when people call a person who may wear makeup “fake”. It’s like art on the face. Would you call someone who has their body covered in tattoo’s fake? Just because you can’t see the skin under?
