A few months ago I read a comment that implied that if you do not wear makeup you are letting yourself go and you are complacent because everyone is looking at you.

Well shit.

I haven’t worn it in 15 years.

I am not against makeup. If it’s for you and it helps you feel good, for fucks sake then wear it.

But if you have chosen to not wear any, don’t allow other people’s opinions influence you.

Let them look at you
Let them think what they want

Wether you wear it or not, you don’t need anyone’s approval.

But seriously, this kind of message and thinking is part of the problem for women. We are so heavily judged by our appearance that some times we don’t know what is up or what is down.

Even before I stopped wearing makeup people would comment on the moles on my face about how I would be more beautiful if I removed them.

What in the actual fuck.

My moles and my face are non of your damn business. And you wearing makeup or not, that’s no one else’s business but yours.

But what I discovered in my journey with makeup is that the less I cared about it, the less I wore it the more I accepted myself.

And nope I am not saying that when you wear makeup you don’t accept yourself.

What I am saying is that we have got to stop looking down on women who choose to either wear makeup or not.

What I am saying is that you don’t get to tell women they are not put together or have let themselves go if they choose to not wear makeup.

What I am saying is that it’s nobody’s business what you wear on your face and if it does in fact, help you feel amazing and beautiful.

This opinion of believing and thinking that women are not put together or have become complacent when they don’t wear show up in how they choose continues to influence society and it’s view on women.

And it has to stop.

The end.
