The Power of Make-Up

Simone_power of makeup

I might be a little late on the bandwagon, after Nikkie posted this video that’s been sweeping up social media these days, but I’ve finally watched it, and I love it!

A friend (pictured above) and I decided we want to do it as well – we love make-up. We love doing it, wearing it, buying it, looking at it, okay you get it…

It isn’t as intense as in Nikkie’s video, but it’s extremely noticeable none the less. (Me above)

Every girl wears some sort of enhancer; if you wear perfume to smell nice, why discriminate against someone who wears make-up to look nice? If you have paintings hanging on your walls at home, what is the purpose other than to enhance the look? Sound in your car, isn’t that also just enhancement of something that is already there?

By no means is this false advertising, we do not advertise ourselves, that would make you a prostitute! We enhance our natural features, it’s a form of art, and it is a personal choice.

You don’t like wearing make-up? Fine by me, I’m not going to judge. Just because it isn’t suited to your needs and wants, doesn’t mean no one else can have it.

And to finish of with – we don’t wear make-up everyday, simply because we don’t always feel like it, or don’t have time for it. Every person who has seen us with make-up, has also seen us without, and there has certainly never been any complaints. (Aside for the occasional lipgloss smear on clothes)

  1. I’m with you on the power of makeup. It really can transform the outside and lift that inside up too.

    There aint no insecurity that makeup cant give a little bit of boost.

    I cannot wait to show my daughter like my mother showed me 🙂
