Real Talk

This is MY face.

Helurrr all you beautiful people. Firstly, I would like to thank each and every one of you for taking the time out of your day to read through my content and help me hit the 5000 view mark on my blog. I started this platform almost a year ago because I’ve loved writing from a really young age. Whilst I love makeup, fashion and food, I also have strong opinions about almost everything and I really enjoy sharing them with people. Not to force them on you, but in the hopes that you may share similar thoughts or may enlighten me on a different perspective (and vice versa).

Enough about that. This post is about something that I’ve loved since I was 5 years old and I hid in a corner to put my mother’s lipstick on (my whole face, but still). The whole concept of makeup just fascinated me from way back when, it’s such a beautiful form of art and expression. From metallic eyelids and heavily lined waterlines to bronzers and highlights – I love everything about it! And it’s not because I’m hiding behind a face of makeup, I’m simply enhancing my already beautiful features because even though I love my skin, I was not born with shiny eyelids and a cateye. Wearing makeup does not make you insecure or any less beautiful than you are – and the same can be said for not wearing makeup. I personally don’t wear makeup every single day but that’s because I’m lazy and would rather sleep. HOWEVER, whatever your reasons for wearing or not wearing makeup, that is great – YOU DO YOU!

What I am not a fan of is bullying (especially cyber because these days everyone is an expert online) in any shape or form. I can go all kinds of crazy when I read comments about how someone should wear makeup or not wear makeup because this sad excuse of a person has nothing better to do with their life than be a troll. I think that it is downright nasty and unnecessary to concern yourself with someone else’s face if you have nothing nice to say. I’ve said this so many times on my social accounts and a post I did a while ago, but I will say it again :  The presence of one woman’s beauty is not the absence of yours. I just cannot understand why women especially are resorting to such hate against other women in a world where we could really use some love. I’m not saying that you should be fake and start telling everyone that they’re looking fire, but would it hurt you or take away from your own beauty if you were just nice? If anything, being miserable and frowning all the time is what causes wrinkles. SMILE.A.BIT – or a lot!

Okay, this post is turning into a bit of a rant but I just really wanted to say those things. I cannot explain to you just how absolutely amazing I feel when someone tells me that my skin looks great, my eyebrows are popping or my highlight makes me look like I have money (I don’t, but it was nice to hear). We all know that it’s human nature to focus on the negative, it’s just the way we’re wired…so why not just dial down the negative? It really is unnecessary and such a waste of time.

I would like to share a blog post that is slightly related to the message I’m trying to relay here by Dhanusha, you can check it out here if you’d like 🙂 It’s about the blogging community and how we should support each other. I think it’s pretty great.

Thank you for reading, please let me know your thoughts/suggestions/whatever you want to share!

Until next time

  1. Absolutely true. More people need to just let others live without being hateful. Make up is art and many of us use it expressive our creativity. No one should tell us otherwise. Thanks so much for sharing my post. Appreciate it.
