“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” – Sophia Loren
In today’s beauty trends, natural beauty is hardly acknowledged. I’ve noticed the effects of these trends on social media and younger women. Makeup is often used as a form of self-expression. Although for many, makeup is a way to hide from the world. Most of the makeup looks I see are layers upon layers of contour and a “unique” assortment of eye shadow. These looks can come across as off-putting, overwhelming, and even inappropriate if worn in an everyday setting. There is a time and place for everything, especially for dramatic looks like these. Fortunately, a great alternative to dramatic makeup is a natural look. With natural makeup, your wearing less product and styling it in a way that enhances your own features. Enhancing your natural features means not drastically changing your look. Which means no over lining lips or eyebrows, fake freckles, wearing foundation that doesn’t match your skin tone and heavy eyeliner. Wearing natural makeup enables you to feel more confident as yourself. You will start feeling more confident because you are embracing your natural beauty instead of hiding behind your makeup. Natural makeup is great for your skin, it lets your skin breathe and your nighttime skincare routine won’t be such a hassle trying to get your makeup off. The last benefit of having natural makeup is not having to do touch-ups as often throughout the day. I hope you enjoyed this post and that inspired you to let your natural beauty shine through!
