Why I love makeup

It’s no secret that I’m a huge makeup lover. I have been using makeup since I was about 14,  and I’m sure I’ll continue to use it until I’m very old. I love makeup because it’s like art for your face. You can do your makeup to match your mood. There are so many different products and in so many different colors, that the possibilities for your look are endless.

Makeup is my hobby. Some people like to draw or write or sing, but I like doing makeup. Whether its on myself or on someone else, doing makeup brings me so much joy. I get so excited every time I purchase a new makeup product even if it’s something small.

I think a common misconception about people who wear makeup is that they wear it because they’re insecure with how they look without it. But that’s not true at all. Personally, I love the days when I can go out and not wear any makeup and rub my eyes or scratch my eyebrows without worrying about messing it up. Taking my makeup off after a long day of wearing it is such a good feeling. But applying your makeup and seeing how well you did it is the best feeling of all.

The thing to remember about makeup is that its all about practice and technique. Everyone has little tricks that work for them, that may not work for other people. And that’s okay. When I first started doing my makeup, it was horrible. My foundation color never matched my neck, my eyebrows were too dark and never shaped the right way, my eyeliner was really bad, and my eyeshadow was very unblended.

I’ve gotten really good at all of these things, but I’m still not perfect. The more I practice, the better I will be.
