It may seem that women are trying to hide behind their cosmetics. This is false in every sense of the word. Makeup is not meant to cover up your face, but to enhance the natural beauty that is there. A dab of perfume is also not covering up the way you smell; it is helping you smell better. Nobody said you have to hide; this is just a way to bring out your beauty.
Cosmetics, with all it entails, and perfume, have long been on women’s’ list of favorite things. There is always room to buy more makeup as you are constantly using it. Each item lasts pretty long; but there are still new things that you usually need.
Since it is a favorite, there is plenty of it to go around. Everywhere you go there is cosmetics and perfume waiting to be put into your cart. Beautiful packages and baskets filled with different cosmetics make perfect gifts; you can light up (and make beautiful) any woman’s face with that.
There are people out there who believe in the natural look. This is quite understandable, but not everyone can go completely bare without any makeup on their face. They also feel unattractive without it and feel like it is a necessity for them; and why not? There is nothing wrong with dabbing on some makeup to feel and look beautiful. That does not mean you are not beautiful just because you apply makeup.
What a misconception this is; and an unfair one at that. Why does a woman need to feel like she is covering things up on her face or that she is only beautiful with makeup? This is very unfair; and untrue. Makeup is a way to bring out a woman’s natural shine and beauty.
There are ways to limit it if you want to go the more natural way and feel you still need a little touching up. You can go with the very basics, and you can always add on to that. A great way to start is with a nice base or concealer that will even out your skin tone and smoothes the lines and wrinkles on your face.
Then, a little blush and bronzer is always a great way to add a little color and bring out your own in the process. No need to pile it on; a few subtle strokes from the brush are more than enough, and you will notice already the ease and lightness of it. To add just a little more, apply a nice thin layer of lipstick or lip gloss. This will tie it all in and add a splash of color. It will make you look like you are wearing makeup but not too much. Lastly, quickly spray a drop of perfume, but not too much as you don’t want it to be too noticeable. It is a great ending point in going natural. Of course, you can always add more things as there is plenty to put on.
Wearing makeup does not need to define who you are. It is just helping you to be more yourself and bring out your natural beauty. There is no need to fear applying cosmetics to your liking; it is what women are supposed to do. Don’t hide behind your makeup; embrace it by enhancing your already beautiful face.
