The Power of Make-up

The extremely talented and beautiful Nikkie from Nikkietutorials has recently posted a video on the power of make-up. In this video, she talks about the “Taboo” of wearing make-up, and shows you how fun make-up can be by showing a half-face transformation using make-up. To follow the footsteps of Nikkie, I’m writing this blogpost to give my opinion on the topic of wearing make-up and the reasons why I wear it.

“You look so much prettier without make-up”. “Why do you wear so much make-up, you don’t need it!”. “You are beautiful with and without make-up!”. These are examples of things that I hear daily. People often think that I wear a lot of make-up because I’m insecure about myself, that I won’t go out of the house without make-up because I don’t like my “normal” face. I know I look perfectly fine and dandy without make-up, STOP telling me that because I’m sick and tired of hearing it. Do you want know the true reason why I wear make-up? Because I LOVE make-up and I don’t give a single f*** what anybody thinks of it. Make-up is so much fun, because you can transform your whole face into a piece of art every single day. Want to know how you look with bigger lips? Get a lip pencil and BOOOM instant lip injections! Want to look like you have been on a holiday at the Bahama’s? Put some bronzer on your face and it looks like you have been baking under the sun for weeks! Want to look like a Unicorn has barfed all over your face? Get those rainbow coloured eyeshadows and glitter pigments and fly away!

I think it’s so much fun to experiment with make-up. Every time when a new make-up product arrives, I’m so very eager to try it out to see what kind of fun looks I can create. A lot of times when I’m experimenting, my boyfriend doesn’t even like the way I look at all, and I actually don’t care because I’m doing it because I like it. It is a way of expressing who I am, just like having a certain style of clothing or hair.

Of course I’m not saying that this is the reason why everyone wears make-up, this is just my reason. Never be ashamed of wearing make-up. If you’re afraid of make-up and trying new things, please don’t! At the end of the day, the make-up washes off so you can start a whole new adventure the next day. Look into tutorials and just try if it works out for you. Practice makes perfect! here is no wrong in make-up, just do what you feel like suits you best.

    Leuk dat je dit laat zien! daarnaast is het commentaar van mensen zo herkenbaar! Mensen denken echt dat je make-up draagt uit onzekerheid. Ze vergeten gewoon dat je het ook kan dragen omdat je het mooi vind. Ik had toevallig de video van Nikkie ook voorbij zien komen maar ik wist niet dat ze zo heette. weer wat geleerd.

    Precies dit! Ik hou er van om met make-up dingen die ik mooi vind aan mijzelf te accenturen, niet om ze met make-up te verbergen! <3 x
