The most common connotation about makeup is that all girls only wear it because they’re insecure and don’t like how they look. I know there’s probably many differing opinions regarding makeup, whether that’s thinking it’s bad because it makes you look fake, or that it’s something that’s always a part of every girl’s morning routine, but personally I think that it’s different depending on the person. While this may be true for some girls, this isn’t the only reason for makeup. In my opinion, makeup can be used to cover up blemishes, uneven skin tones, or dark undereye circles, among other things. I also think it can be a creative way to express yourself, whether that’s trying out a new shade of lipstick or eyeshadow color, or trying out colorful eyeliner and mascara. However, I think that a lot of makeup worn everyday is too much and should only be worn for big events like prom, homecoming, or a formal dance. I feel like your daily makeup should mainly be used to bring out your natural attributes, such as your eyes, lips, or brows. Honestly, I think that if someone wears so much makeup that they don’t look like themselves without it it might be a little too extreme. According to the Huffington Post, 65% of girls started wearing makeup between the age 8 and 13. This incredibly young age just goes to show just how many girls actually rely on makeup and how they’re brought up to believe they “need” it. Makeup shouldn’t be used as a crutch…you should be able to walk out of your house confidently without makeup. I think every single girl is “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) exactly how they look naturally.
