I love makeup!I love to experiment and learn new tricks.
Sometimes, I watch to learn how to contour, strobe and apply eyeshadow just like a pro. Makeup tips, tutorials, and step-by-step how-tos help me.
Doing it is something I know I can be good at. Applying it is a skill I have learned through wearing it. When I can apply a bomb cat eye and a bold lip, I feel good about myself.
I don’t do makeup just to hide the real me. For me, it is an art and you are a canvas, but it enhances the canvas – it does make it more beautiful. I wear eyeliner and mascara to enhance my eyes. None of these products actually change anything about my face, it’s just enhancing what I already have.
Contrary to what most people think, I wear it for myself. It’s something I love and enjoy doing. Putting on my makeup is something I do to make myself happy and confident.
Do you wear makeup? Do you love it? What is your favorite brand? Wearing it is not a way to cover all my flaws, it is my way of enhancing my looks and having a fun time with beautiful colors. According to an article, the average girl spends more than 10 minutes every day putting on makeup. And there are reasons why you shouldn’t feel guilty for every second of that.
A study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Sciences agrees. When women were asked to imagine themselves wearing it or going barefaced in different social situations, women “reported being more self-confident and sociable when wearing as opposed to not wearing their customary cosmetics.”
This means that admitting “I use concealer too” can create a kind of cosmetic camaraderie among women — and maybe help you finally find your Holy Grail foundation along the way.
