I actually haven’t really seen anyone talking about this subject, but I feel like it is an important one. You know what they say – wear makeup only for yourself, not for anyone else. I 100% agree with that, but in reality, the line between wanting to wear it for yourself and wanting to wear it for others is so diffused.
I love makeup, I really do, don’t get me wrong. You can’t deny that it is really fun to see yourself with sharp cheekbones or full eyebrows. But do I really need it every day?
Some mornings I just don’t feel like putting on makeup or just simply don’t have time for it, but I do at least a little bit anyways. And yes, not entirely for myself, for others too. I have this weird quality about me that I don’t like people feeling sorry for me. I don’t want to be vulnerable. I try not to complain too much if I hadn’t had that much sleep the night before. I just cover up my dark circles and act like everything is how it’s supposed to be. As vain as it sounds, I want to create an image that I’ve got it all somewhat together. I don’t want anyone focusing on how tired or sick I look or that blemish I’ve got, I want them to look at me, at my work, at my personality. I am not hiding under makeup, I am just hiding the things I don’t want representing me. I want them to see the real me.
