Today I thought I would show my face. My made up face. Despite what the photo tells me above, I actually don't use a lot of make up. I walk into a beauty store and just walk around in an awestruck stupor looking at the things that do what they say they do. Honestly I'm hopeless. I didn't really understand what foundation, concealer and powder were meant to do until I was well beyond the age of 16. When I did, it just didn't compute. This is one of those retrospects where I fully appreciate being homeschooled, I missed the influence and education of what these things did.
I have had my make up done with these products a handful of times and each time I've hated them. It felt so claustrophobic and itchy on my skin. Foundation and I are not friends. Even though I don't like what they do or how they feel, I'm not bashing those who do choose to wear it. Make up is an easy enhancement and a good way to hide away a tired face :)
But I get sick of seeing make up tutorials/GRWM where every girl continues to hide their true face under so many different products. It feels almost unacceptable to look presentable without the use of them. Having younger sisters who are at that age where they are very susceptible to what they see on youtube and through other various media, this kind of upsets me, that this is what they are seeing as the norm. Make up should be fun, not a necessity! I wish girls and women alike would come to a place where they feel pretty with make up and without it. I guess that's what I'm trying to get at with this post. That it's ok if you want to wear make up but it's also ok if you don't.
I rarely talk about things like this on here and it kind of makes me a little nervous. This blog has always been a bit of fun, a little style journal I can look through when I'm older and to share with you. However, sometimes, I just want to have a little bit of input on certain things that I feel, so maybe I can look back and see it wasn't all about the clothes I love :) Anyway those are my two cents. Hope you enjoyed this post and if you agree with me or disagree with me, let me know down below!
