Why I love Makeup

I know what you are thinking after my title…Oh great, another post about yet another female being makeup obsessed, nothing new here *yawn*. But before you shy away from this post, I thought I would make it clear why I enjoy makeup products. I enjoy buying, swatching, using and playing with makeup. It’s fun to me.

The way society is shaped today has created a stereotype of females needing makeup to walk out of the house. I, along with many other females I know, have no trouble stepping out of the house with nothing but our skin on. If I’m going to HEB or Target to pick up some groceries 15 minutes from my house, I don’t feel the need to get a full face on. However, there is nothing wrong with wearing makeup to the grocery store. (For you non-texans, HEB is like a Kroger or Publix). I go in there and see females dolled up all the time, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

When I don’t wear makeup, I look different. That is a no brainer, and you would think that it would be an easy concept but many people ask me if I’m sick when I simply have a naked face. I don’t really take offense to this, because the naturalness of my freckles and dark circles show.

When I do wear makeup, I look different. Obvs. People don’t understand that I genuinely enjoy these products. I don’t need them to feel beautiful. Nobody specifically needs any material items. (Besides food, water and shelter of course). I am perfectly okay with putting up pictures of me on social media without any makeup on. I use to have a problem with it, but my confidence has grown to an extreme high, especially after I graduated high school. 8 am classes in college are no time for winged liner and false eyelashes everyday. That gets old real quick, really really quick. (Drake Voice*)

I love makeup because you can be creative. You can wear blue lipstick and orange eyeliner with green eyeshadow and a red blush. You can wear really big wings or you can pile lashes on lashes. It’s all fun to me. I know I am beautiful without products and material items of makeup. My goal is to make other people feel the same way that I do. That makeup should be enjoyable and fun, and not a dreadful process to put on just so you feel acceptable.

Recently, I did a photoshoot with a friend and I went natural for my first outfit which was swimwear. I will be sharing pics of my NATURAL face for you loves. I hope you all enjoy and feel confident. Love the skin you are in! Wear makeup freely and have fun with it! Don’t let society control what you are supposed to look like. You are all beautiful, and I know that sounds super cliche and weird because I don’t know all of my followers individually, but I guarantee you are all beautiful in your own way.   

 I hope this post inspires you to be okay with going natural. I hope you are inspired to wear blue lipstick. I hope you are inspired to feel confident in your skin and nothing else. I hope you are inspired one way or another and I hope you are inspired to feel confident 24/7.

I love you,
Ambz.
