Seeing photos of perfect girls with prefect body, skin, and hair makes me think low of myself. I feel like I'm never good enough, never beautiful, and always a wallflower. I have been battling with this emotions for as long as I can remember.
When I reached my teenage years and puberty striked, my skin became so irritated and I suffered from acne which made matters even worse at least for myself. I was afraid to take photos, afraid to socialize and show myself to people. I would always get comments that I'm hideous. Media made this perfect world where society must look like the ones they showcase in magazines. Us normal girls felt so insecure that it took a toll in social aspect of our life. We never appreciate anything, as we made this mark in our brain that we are ugly and it is not okay. We feel rejected, neglected, and belittled.
Everything changed when I started getting into makeup. I have learned that makeup can conceal imperfections, making me feel good about myself. I've learned that makeup can empower one another and make us / me feel appreciated and accepted. It became my creative outlet to be able to express myself. Though it may seem that I only rock one type of look, but makeup has helped me with my confidence! I started to go out more and socialize. I became comfortable in my own skin with or without makeup. I learned to embrace all my flaws whilst using makeup to further enhance the features that I like.
Makeup does not define you. It is just an accessory to help you be yourself.
Remember, "Always feel BEAYOUTIFUL"
