Have I always been into makeup? No. I was more of a tomboy growing up.Did my mom teach me how to wear lipstick and foundation? No. My mom doesn’t even care about makeup.So how did I get to start like wearing makeup? Keep reading to find out.
I can’t really pinpoint the exact moment when I started to like makeup but it wasn’t at age 8 or 14. At those ages I was more interested in books, more than anything else. I was probably 25, when I bought my first Mac lipstick. My first foundation was Black Opal which I found in a store across the street.
I didn’t know what Sephora or Nyx was until about a year ago, when I started working across the road from the mall. I was in a professional environment so I didn’t want to look like I just woke up out of bed, so that’s when I started getting more into wearing makeup.
My coworkers would talk about different brands that they use and what works and what doesn’t work. It was all so new to me, but so intriguing so I started buying different foundations and really seeing what works best.
So Why do I like wearing makeup?
1.I think because I’m a creative person makeup gives me the chance to create. It’s like my face is the blank canvas and I can just paint whatever picture I want people to see. I love that. One day I can be sultry, the next day I can look simple. It’s awesome.
2. It makes me feel confident. Yes, I know we should all be confident without makeup, and I am, but it just makes me feel more confident. It makes me feel like I can just go up to anyone and talk to them without having to worry about how I look. I know you girls can relate.
3. It enhances my best features. I have high cheek bones and wearing makeup, specifically contouring my face, helps show my cheek bones and enhances them. If I want my eyes to pop, putting on mascara helps with that. Makeup is just the bomb.
4. I have dark spots on my face so foundation helps to cover that up. I’m just being real with ya’ll. My skin isn’t perfect but makeup helps it to look good
I love makeup and I’m probably not going to stop wearing it. I also really don’t care if people say I wear too much makeup because people’s opinions don’t really matter to me.
I also don’t wear makeup 90% of the time but when I do, I like to get all up in it.
I’m also trying to get rid of my dark spots so you know? I’m working on myself.
And to guys who bash girls who wear makeup, “Leave them alone”. It’s not your face, so don’t judge. Some girls like to wear a lot, some don’t wear any at all. Love people for who they are.
If you don’t wear makeup I don’t judge. As I always say ,”Do you”.
Makeup is fun though, you should try it sometime. XOXO
