I’ve been wearing more makeup lately than I used to, and inevitably, I more often get to hear:
"Oh, you don’t need makeup. You’re beautiful without it!"
And I talk a lot of beauty and loving myself just how I am. Some people feel these two things are hypocritical, to love yourself and wear makeup. And okay, yes, let’s acknowledge that there are women who feel pressured to wear it despite not wanting to. This happens. But a lot of the time, women wear makeup for themselves. It’s fun! It’s expressive. It’s artistic. It’s not “necessary,” but neither is pizza.
I’m not trying to cover anything up the same way an artist isn’t putting paint on a canvas for the sake of covering the canvas.
(Edit: Also, I’m getting calls for people wanting t-shirts of this. If you feel the same, let me know. I would gladly print some of these.)
