How many of you have heard people say “You look better without makeup” or “Why do you put on so much makeup?” The amount of times I have heard these things is ridiculous. Like I don’t know what people don’t understand, makeup is great, it literally is- it makes me feel beautiful and healthy and fabulous. It also reminds me that I can be whoever I want to be because makeup is art and it can really transform you.
Since some people still fail to comprehend the love for makeup, here is a list of reasons why.
1. We Look Fabulous.
I if you do it to seem nice, or because my contouring is not on point one day. But do not give me the “You look better without make up” thing. Like you haven’t seen me without makeup. I work 18 hours a day, my body is usually in pain and my eyes are usually puffy. So err I need that eye cream, and liner and everything else to make me look alive and feel fabulous. I am sure many females go through the same.
2. Makeup Gives Confidence.
Honestly, I don’t think I step out of the house without putting on eyeliner and lip gloss. It’s just a must, something I am so used to that I don’t think I even consider it makeup anymore. I feel confident with makeup on, it makes me happy, I feel like I look good, and if I can ace that winged eyeliner in less than 5 minutes- I can do anything. So, if something makes us women feel good and confident we will do it.
3. It Helps Shape Personality.
Girls, we all need days we don’t want to be ourselves, we want to have fun, be a different person and just be in a fantasy while constantly entangled in reality. It’s fine. It’s normal. It takes us to that fantasy realm, I can change my look to that of Tinker bells or even Elizabeth Taylors. I can be a goth queen or a drag queen. I can wear shiny lip gloss and look like I am off to slay and have sex or wear matte and go to a job interview because I am so professional. Makeup makes us feel different and many times it makes us happier. Happiness is by far more important than anyone’s opinion.
That is all for today, the reasons are many and possibly different for each girl but we are tired of hearing men tell us what to do and what not to do. For once, just let it be. We are all queens. With makeup or without it. We rule. That’s all that matters.
