There's a lot that I love and hate about makeup. For me personally, I was never a fan of face makeup simply because being bi-racial, it seemed like nothing ever matched my skin tone, nothing was ever for 'me'. In the process I learned to love my freckles and found out everyone around me did as well.
As for eye makeup, I love eye makeup because I've always been a fan of accentuating my eyes. Growing up, I would have these moments of jealousy of how come I never got my father's green eyes. Then over time I learned to love and appreciate my darker eyes, accentuating them with eyeliner, colorful eyeshadows, and mascara. They're my favorite feature on my face and I learned that as long as I loved them, it didn't matter what anyone else thought.
