You are Beautiful

No matter what they say...

I'm a big makeup whore. Always have been, always will be. I don't usually over do it, but I absolutely love playing with the stuff. When it comes to makeup I feel like I'm creating art on my face... Like I'm accentuating what I already have... Making it more prominent perhaps? Let's just say I really enjoy it. HOWEVER, this is my problem with makeup...


You might not all feel this way, but to throw some facts about myself on the table...for a long time I didn't even want to go downstairs with out having some sort of concealer and eyeliner on. Seriously, I have dark circles under my eyes that are boarder line raccoon eyes and I fucking HATED IT. I still sort of do sometimes but I really don't mind as much.

My message to all the young ladies reading this, which are the ones who suffer through what I'm calling "MUP" (make-up-problems) the most is to GET OVER IT, it's total bullshit. It may sound a bit harsh but thinking back on it... I kind of laugh that I ever felt this way. EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL IN THEIR OWN WAYS. Stop looking at T.V and magazines and trying to become these people! most of the shit is airbrushed on (Trust me, I know). Love yourself. Everyones shines. Embrace your natural beauty.

Another thing I'm going to state is that it's ok to have fun with makeup. I do. But don't ever feel like you NEED it because you DO NOT.

I hope I was able to spread along some positivity and realness in this post. Honestly, I'm all about keeping it real. I often get in trouble for speaking my mind but that's ok... as long as it comes from the heart, it's a problem I'm willing to deal with.

  2. There's no way you should get in trouble for this post. I am guilty of this though. I love make-up and I rarely leave the house without it, even if its just lipstick - but thats because I am a lipstick addict.
    I agree you don't need make up and we do get a little caught up in the more is better mantra - so way to remind us.
