Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Makeup Movement

Makeup Movement

4:00 AM

Why is half of my face naked and the other half covered in makeup you ask?  Well, I read this article the other day about a little mini movement that is going on.  A few months ago I read an article on Buzzfeed talking about why you should date the girl who DOESN’T wear makeup and they pretty much attacked girls who do wear makeup saying how we are high maintenance and all of that other garbage.  This actually made me slightly angry.  I wear makeup every day, and I don’t spend a lot of time on it unless I’m outfit shooting or going to an event.  I would never look down on someone or say anything is bad about a woman who doesn’t wear makeup.  That’s entirely her choice.  Some girls actually look better without makeup than they do with it.  Makeup isn’t supposed to be caked on, it’s supposed to enhance your natural beauty.  Of course some vloggers out there go all out with their makeup, and that’s fine, they look flawless!  In my own personal life I just don’t have the time to spend that much time on my makeup every day.  I would never call them high maintenance, because last time I checked they either make money off of it or that’s their career.  So, a lot of bloggers/vloggers/social media users took to post a selfie with half of their face with makeup on and the other half with no makeup on.  THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH WEARING MAKEUP AND YOU SHOULDN’T FEEL BAD FOR WEARING IT!

I think the misconception is a lot of people don’t realize, some girls aren’t putting on that makeup or dressing up nice for anyone but THEMSELVES!  Yes, I’m using a lot of caps because I feel like it gets my point across better haha.  Anyway, I don’t do my hair and makeup every day for anyone but myself.  I don’t feel as though I need to prove anything to anyone, but I just like wearing makeup.  I like transforming and trying new ways to apply my smokey eye or putting on my infamous cat eye that everyone always compliments.  Have I stepped out of my house without makeup?  Oh absolutely!  Do I do it often?  Nope!  I don’t understand why everyone is so quick to judge out there nowadays.  There are reasons why you should date a girl who DOES wear makeup but I’m not going to list them and attack the women who go bare.  Just because I get up 15-20 minutes earlier just to do my makeup does not make me high maintenance.  Nor does it make me fake.  This also does not mean that when my boyfriend sees me without makeup it’s such a surprise.  Yes, I look different, but everyone looks different even if you put your hair up instead of wearing it down.

Here’s to the girls who do wear makeup.  Don’t ever feel bad for wearing it.  Don’t ever feel like you’re fake because of it.  Just because you chose to take extra time focusing on your look does not make you narcissist.  If you feel more confident when you wear makeup by all means wear it!
