I had a different post planned for today, however, I have a huge desire to discuss this with you guys.
I talked a tiny bit about this on facebook earlier, but I really wanted to make sure EVERYONE sees it.
I’m curious as to why some girls choose full coverage foundation and full coverage concealer?
I totally understand that some girls have scarring and discoloration, etc., to cover and I understand covering that completely.
I’ve just never understood the point of covering yourself in so much makeup that it more closely resembles war paint than makeup.
I’ve never been a full coverage kind of girl, and to be honest medium coverage is a STRETCH for me. I’m not a fan of it. I don’t like the way a lot of makeup feels on my face and I don’t like feeling like I’m wearing a mask.
For clarification, I do not have terrible skin. I get a zit or two every once in a while, I have a little bit of redness, dark circles, large pores and I have places on my face that have no pigmentation.
I think that sounded a lot worse than it is.
The point is, full coverage is way too much for me and I know that.
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, I don’t see the point in covering every single imperfection.
I can totally understand balancing discoloration and covering acne scarring.
Imperfections are what make you unique, and they’re what makes you, you.
If we all were 100% flawless, wouldn’t we all look the same?
Why would you want to look like anyone other than yourself?
Why make yourself look like you’re wearing a mask?
I’m not trying to judge; beauty is subjective and we are all more than welcome to do whatever we wish with makeup. You’re more than welcome to wear your makeup as you pleased, and should not feel judged because of it.
I am in no way judging you or trying to put you down, so please don’t think that.
Also, to clarify, there is a difference between covering what needs to be covered and caking on makeup.
I will try not to judge for cake face, but I will probably fail.
I hope no one is offended by this post, as that wasn’t the purpose.
All I’m trying to say is:
Your flaws and imperfections are what makes you unique; it’s what makes you YOU.
Imperfections are beautiful, and being YOU is beautiful.
You shouldn’t feel self conscious because of them.
Just know that even with imperfections, there is still beauty in everything.
You don’t have to be flawless and “perfect” to be beautiful.
