If you would have told me 5 years ago that today I’d have a 4-drawer dresser (and a closet) full of makeup, and that I would be a beauty blogger, I’d have laughed in your face. Like, full on UGLY laugh, tears streaming down my face, and maybe even pee a little. HEY, I’M 45. IT HAPPENS.
I am asked all the time why I wear makeup. It’s simple, really.
I wear makeup because I enjoy it.
I know I am just as beautiful without makeup as I am with makeup.
I wear makeup because it makes me happy.
I wear makeup to enhance my beauty.
I wear makeup because it’s challenging.
I wear makeup because it’s fun.
I wear makeup because I truly enjoy the products, as well as the process of applying the products.
I wear makeup because I love the smells (sometimes!) and the packaging.
I wear makeup because it’s just another way of self-expression.
I wear makeup because I can.
No matter the reason, no matter the people who say “you wear too much makeup” or “makeup is such a waste of money” or “Well, I don’t have time to do all that”… never feel guilty or feel that you need to explain yourself for doing what you enjoy. Don’t allow the insecurities of others steal away your joy. Not only where makeup is concerned, but in all aspects of life.
What do you love about makeup?
