The Power Of Makeup


Catfish! Does my online persona match who I am in real life or have I been false advertising this whole time? Last year the power of makeup trend took the world by surprise, all around people were in awe and gasping at the fact some women didn’t naturally have sparkly eyelids, bright pink lips or perfectly defined faces. Most of us makeup enthusiasts already know what’s behind the products but to those on the outside looking in, it was a huge shocker. To me is was nice seeing the canvas of a person before and the art they have created after.

This trend was created to oppose makeup shaming. I find shaming it so crazy. When I see someone on fleek I appreciate and drool over the art they have created. Your blank face is a canvas and makeup is your paint. Makeup is there to emphasize the beautiful canvas that is already there, to get creative, to express who you feel like on the inside to the outer world. I personally love waking up in the morning, deciding how I feel and getting ready, it’s like dress up for adults.

I wear all your typical daily makeup products but also rock a bare face a few days a week and I feel tere is nothing wrong with any of it. With that all being said, I decided to finally jump on the beauty wagon and try it out this challenge. This is Also the first cut crease I have ever done.

Here is my blank canvas freckles, acne, tired mom eyes and all along with my painting.

  1. Love this look – the loose glitter is amazing! And completely agree about our faces being the canvas and makeup the paint, its a really fun way to express ourselves! You look gorgeous with and without makeup! xx

  2. You rock either look! I’m not sure what people get from shaming girls who wear makeup. I don’t see girls who wear makeup shaming those who don’t!
