I’m sure many of you have watched the original video entitled ‘The Power of Makeup’ by Nikkie but for those that haven’t take a look here. I thought this was such a great idea and shows the massive difference that makeup can make to someone’s appearances. Of course I think she looks beautiful both with and without makeup and beauty is only skin deep. I think girls are often given such a hard time for wearing makeup but for me and many other girls it’s very much a comfort blanket. I suffer with bad spots and so I feel more comfortable wearing makeup around people I’m not so confident with. When I go through phases when my skin is a little better than I sometimes wear no makeup at home or even minimal makeup when I’m out.
Before the age of 17/18 I had never even tried makeup so times have certainly changed! It’s not only a case of covering the blemishes that I don’t want people to see but makeup to me is so much more. Makeup is a way of being anybody you want to be. A way of transforming yourself. There is so much creativity and options with makeup and for me it’s like an art. I absolutely love seeing other people’s makeup and the wonderful looks they can create. The perfect eyeliner flick or the perfect contour is something to admire. I don’t feel like girls should be ashamed to wear makeup. You are both beautiful on the inside as well as the outside and if you are confident enough to go barefaced then you go girl. Be who you want to be.
