A long, long time ago I actually hated makeup. I thought it was unnecessary and bad for you. Once I started doing makeup I discovered that it’s actually really fun and I started to love doing it. I actually have grown to love it so much that I have a full on makeup collection now. Because I’m such a big makeup lover I thought it might be fun to share some of the reasons why I like it so much. So, if you want to find out why, make sure you continue reading!
You can accentuate your best features and cover up your worst
This sounds a little drastic, but what I’m trying to say here is that makeup allow you to accentuate what you like about your face. For example you can put the focus on your eyes if you like those or on your lips if that’s your favourite feature. But on the other hand it also allows you to take away the attention from the less-amazing features like the pimples you might have or your very sparse brows. You can choose what you want to show and what you don’t want to show and I like that.
You can create the prettiest version of yourself
Even though I don’t think you should wear makeup to cover up your own face because you might think you’re not pretty enough, I do think it’s great that you can make yourself look your best with it. I think everyone is pretty without makeup, but makeup can in fact make you look a little prettier. I know that’s a sensitive topic, but I always like to think: if I look better without makeup, I have been doing something very wrong with my makeup!
Discovering new products
Another thing I really like about makeup is trying out new products. Finding products you wish you had never bought but also finding products that make you feel incredible. Products that feel magic. And to be honest, even if it isn’t actual magic or even if it’s a bad product, it’s always fun to try out new things.
Trying out new looks and tricks
Another thing that makes makeup fun for me is that you can play around with it. When you have watched a tutorial or when you have come across a hack you have never seen you can try it out. Sometimes it might result in a horrible mistake, but other times it can also be great. I think those are the things that keep makeup fun and interesting!
Something else I really like about makeup is talking about it with friends or with other people who love it just as much as I do. I just really like that. I like hearing peoples opinions on certain products or makeup looks and I like discovering new products because people I know recommended it to me.
Lastly I just like the fact that makeup can make you feel incredibly glamorous. I like when I go to a party (even though that is a very rare occasion) I can sit down and do my makeup for hours and afterwards I feel super glamorous and just kind of pretty you know. And to be honest, that isn’t just when I doll up for a party. Every morning when I do my makeup I always look in the mirror and think “You’ve done a good job today” and that makes me feel good. Of course sometimes I kinda messed up and I don’t think I have done a great job, but that’s not the point.
Overall I just think that makeup is very fun and a nice thing to do. It’s relaxing, it makes you feel pretty and it allows you to hide your pimples and any other thing you don’t want to show the rest of the world and accentuate the things you do love about yourself!
And that was it for today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know if you love makeup and why!
