“Our culture is so ruled by appearance that it's difficult not to get swept up in other peoples valuations of us. Make up has the ability to transform our appearance and give us a boost of confidence and sense that we are impressing others with our beauty, and also provides us with a shield and a way to hide our vulnerability.
I love the playful aspect of make up and transformation but am also aware that it's overuse can reflect some damaging self-talk about not being worthy of love as our natural and vulnerable selves. Life is all about balance, and make up is no different. As a woman with ance-rosacea and as an actor, I tread this balance carefully.”
