Why I Like Wearing Makeup

Hey Guys!  Today I wanted to share with you a really short post with a couple reasons as to why I like wearing makeup.  I was inspired to write this post after hearing several comments about how girls only wear makeup because they’re insecure.  That definitely can be the case at times but is not always.  So here are two reasons as to why I wear makeup…

1. I wear makeup to enhance my natural beauty.  At times makeup can make me feel more confident although this is not the case all the time.

2. It can be fun!  It’s kind of like big girl dress ups, lol.  I’ve never worn a lot of makeup but I do find it fun experimenting with different eye-shadow looks and colours sometimes.

I wanted to conclude this post by saying I don’t wear makeup every day nor have I ever worn a full face of makeup but I do like wearing a little bit occasionally.  I’ll be doing a part two to this post soon as to why I don’t like wearing makeup so stay tuned for that!

I know that many people wear makeup for many different reasons so I’d love to know why you do, if you wear makeup?!

  1. I wear makeup just when I am going to work or I am going out. I don’t use a lot of it, just minimal. Like foundation, blush, eyebrows pencil, lipstick and if I am to lazy in the mornings, mascara😂.My face doesn’t need a tone of makeup and I wear it just to make me feel a bit more confident. X

  2. I wear make-up to feel more confident about some parts of my face and to put in evidence others! For example, I wear powder for hide the oily skin and eyebrows pencil to make they look longer, and I wear lipstick to put in evidence my lips. But I don’t like a face full of make up, with heavy contouring, fake lashes and completely drawn eyebrows: I think makeup should, as you told, enhance the natural beauty of someone, and covering completely your face isn’t a good way to do that! I’m waiting for your second post about this topic 🙂

  3. I think this is a really good post! I recently had a convosation with a male friend who asked me why I wear makeup and he just didn’t understand. He assumed that it was to hide how i actaully look but thats not it at all. Like you said it can make you feel more confident and enhance your natural beauty!

  4. YES! I agree with you! I love how makeup makes me feel. I know I am beautiful without it, but I truly enjoy the products and the process. It’s fun to play and create looks. It’s just another facet of my personality.
    People shouldn’t be so closed minded.
    Thank you for sharing! 💕😊

  5. Great topic I think for me the makeup is a good way to boost my confidence, but I don’t wear as much now that my skin has improved. Trying to avoid putting anything that may irritate the skin. It is nice though change up everyday look with makeup. A bit of mascara and lip colour can make all the difference sometimes 😊

  6. I’m one of the ones who wears a full face every single day but not because I’m insecure, but because its something I just really enjoy! And because I have become somewhat of a makeup hoarder and need to use the things I bought lol ❤️

  7. I definitely agree that it can be fun to experiment with different makeup products and I don’t want to wear makeup all the time to the point where I can’t be seen without it because I like my natural beauty but for special occasions I like wearing makeup 🙂

  8. Makeup can be a way of honoring beauty in yourself … and when you share ideas with friends, in them. It can highlight rather than hide. Honoring beauty is a good thing. It hints at the deep goodness that is a part of life, if we will just look for it.

    1. Thanks for reading this post lovely! I think you should read my post on the true definition of beauty… https://myblessingbygrace.com/2017/07/18/the-true-definition-of-beauty/ Confidence is something that comes from within and although I do struggle with being confident too, I am becoming more confident as I realise my true worth. Please be sure to let me know what you think of the post I linked above too. Many Blessings, Grace. Xx

    I wear makeup mainly because… I just like it. I think it’s fun. Also, it’s nice to have around when my skin gets acne and I need some help 🙂

  13. I love playing with makeup; it’s so therapeutic after a long day. Even just swatching my palettes makes me happy, haha.

  14. I absolutely love this positive post and am feeling inspired to make my own version of this post! I still don’t think there are enough ppl who understand a lot of us choose to wear makeup. I love the artsy side of makeup and how dramatic or soft you can be since the body is a canvas so I definitely wear makeup to be expressive. Two, it’s so much fun creating looks around your mood, quotes/art, outfits, etc. wish I found this sooner but glad I know it now! 🙂
