You’re Beautiful Without all that makeup

“You are beautiful without all that makeup.” How many times have you heard someone say this? I understand the intention behind that statement. It’s meant to tell you that you can feel confident without wearing makeup. (Or worse, sometimes it’s a back handed compliment meant to shame you for making the choice to wear makeup) Yes, I can feel confident without makeup. However, I love wearing it. I love the creativity it brings to my day. I love all the beautiful colors. I love how it makes me feel. Somehow we have confused wearing makeup with wanting to hide who we are. A woman who wears makeup is NO less confident then the woman who doesn’t. It’s one way she expresses herself, and I would venture to say, you are actually getting to see more of who she really is when she has her face done. 

Makeup is NOT a mask. 
Makeup is art.
Makeup is passion.

Makeup is expression.
