I have always been afraid of clowns. When people used to ask my why, I would tell them that it was because they made me nervous because it felt that with their painted on faces they were hiding something. Over these past few years I have struggled a lot with depression and self image, and it made me question all that I was hiding. I remember how at some times the only time I ever felt confident was with my own painted on face. Is this makeup's fault? I don't think so. But there was something that I did realize after coming out of whatever dark place I was at: on the days that I am happy, I feel so much more beautiful than makeup can ever make me feel.
Do you remember the first day we met? I told you how beautiful I thought one of your models was. And I told you that it was because she looked so happy. Happiness is beautiful. If makeup makes you happy, then wear it! If not, then don't worry about it. Regardless we should all strut our stuff, be confident, and be happy, because that's what true beauty is
