I do when my sister is amazing and slays with a makeup brush (I hope there’s not a more technical term for that). She just started her own blog today, and let me tell you, it’s going to be so cool. She has an eye for beauty, I mean, just look at her (the blond, beautiful, amazing human in the picture below)!
It’s not that I don’t like makeup, I do. I think it helps people feel beautiful and gives them confidence, which is awesome. But for me personally, I have a hard time doing anything that makes me feel… well, not like myself. Here’s a picture of my everyday self, just for reference:
For example, I got in an argument with my mom in seventh grade because she wanted to straighten my hair and do my makeup for a dance. I was NOT about to let her do that, because “That’s not what I really look like!” And to this day, I still don’t straighten my hair, and I still don’t wear makeup.
BUT. It’s fun to try new things, which is what this blog is all about! Personal development doesn’t happen inside your comfort zone. That being said…
Here’s the end result of my sister’s handiwork:
She’s SO GOOD! I didn’t even know my face could look like that! She always tells me that, “Makeup should be used to enhance your natural beauty, not cover anything up or change the real you!” If you want to see how she gave me this awesome look, with all of the products, a reference pic, and before and after pics, click here!
