There is something transforming about makeup. There’s nothing like the feeling that a pair of fake eyelashes and a swipe of red lipstick gives me; I feel empowered, ready to take on the world. It’s funny how just that little bit of extra confidence can help you to believe a little bit more in yourself. I like to use makeup as a fun way to express my true self, the many different sides that encompass who I am as a whole.
The disadvantage of makeup is how the ads that sell it, portray perfection. In a world of airbrushing and Photoshop, I’m concerned about the images that we are showing to the girls of the next generation. Is it really more important to look incredible, or, to be curious about the world around you and how you can make your mark in that world?
