I used to sneak and wear make up, when I was younger, like 5th grade, but I always got caught. My mom knew even if it were the smallest amount. It wasn'tuntil I was older when I realized that every once of makeup I wore, I was altering every trait, every once of confidence and every bit of strength that was hereditarily given to me. Now, I think about what beauty means to me. To me beauty is strength and confidence and I could never find that within any makeup.
Beauty, my natural beauty tells my story. It's describes my mom's nose and my dad's eyes, my grandmothers smile and cheek bones, my aunts' forehead. My natural beauty connects me to my family and makes up every cell in my body. When I don't wear makeup I proudly walk with my history, their history and I wear my story, I wear my beauty.
