Beauty in the eye of the beholder practice

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
It is a common misconception that we wear makeup for others.
Or is it?
I LOVE makeup. Nothing makes me feel happier than a brand new palette. The colors, the glitter, the possibilities seem endless. I think of myself as a painter and my face as the canvas. I am create anything I want. I can create a princess look with bright and colorful expression, I can make it more subtle and serious like a business woman, I can do something dark and dramatic like the "smoky eye".
I know that many women and men #MUA's would agree with me.
Some of the most respected and adored #BeautyBloggers on Youtube can confirm this. If you have any doubt please check out the link below:

While I personally #adore wearing makeup, there is a certain amount of pressure that comes with doing so. Judgement is natural, we all judge others to some degree even when we are trying our best not to.
Imagine going out for a quick run to Walgreens and accidentally bumping into someone you found attractive, or someone you had interviewed last week for a job you have been wanting so bad.
You are wearing some old floppy Ugg boots (your favorite and most comfortable pair), your most unflattering pair of grey sweat pants, and a crop top hoodie.
You have no makeup on and your hair is sitting at the top of your head in a messy bun of exhaustion. LBS. We have all been there and there is #noshame in this.
When that person of interest sees you, depending on their own perspective, it is very realistic that you may have unintentionally #blocked yourself from an opportunity because of your rough and unkept appearance.
I know your potential, your IG is popping and you look GREAT in most of your FB pics, but in the real life real time awkward moment that you are spotted by the wrong pair of eyes, judged by that person you were counting on to NOT be judgmental, you could be missing out on something fabulous which I NEED to stress is NO FAULT OF YOUR OWN.
I love makeup and I find the process of applying makeup to be a fabulous artistic expression that is actually therapeutic in a sense.
I encourage everyone reading this to do what works best for you, but the reality is that there is a lot of unfair pressure on all of us in the world we live in, and like it or not sometimes we conform to outside judgement to get what we want in the bigger picture.
LOVE you all so much!
