Before I get started on what this blog is truly about let me first say in my last post I posted cold and flu prevention please check it out. I know most of it is well known but we don’t always prevent getting sick. There is a nasty little bug going around and it hits you out of nowhere so please try to stay healthy this winter…
Well I was sent home today from work not in trouble or anything of that nature but that nasty little bug I was talking about has gotten the best of me. So I am in bed I slept most of the day and now I decided to type up a post for you all 🙂 My blog is called MommyinMakeup so I know a lot of you are wondering well when will the makeup part ring is pretty little bell…well the bell is ringing. The one thing that people do is judge it doesn’t matter how nice you are at one point or another you judge. Don’t worry I do it to sometimes we don’t even realize that we are doing it. One of the main things I hear women and even some men judging other women on is BEAUTY. We all hear beauty is in the eye of the beholder some may not know what that means but it means that all because you don’t find him or her beautiful doesn’t mean someone else doesn’t or wouldn’t.
I have seen a lot of women lose so much confidence about themselves due to others talking them down. Let me tell you sweetie you are beautiful maybe not to them but who cares about “them”. I hear other girls say man I hate her because of how pretty she is, or are you kidding me he is with her, he can do way better, I look way better than her, or why is she so big and trying to look pretty she will never be pretty until she hits the gym. See that’s where people are WRONG that comment that you just made is what makes her better than you looks and all. People don’t realize including me sometimes that the words that come out of your mouth are what make you look ugly inside and out. I have friends who rock their natural beauty and I have friends who love their makeup it doesn’t matter how you decide to wear your beauty just wear it. Just don’t forget to be a humble person that’s what truly makes someone beautiful.
I personally rock both natural beauty and makeup, I hear a lot of people criticizing others for wearing makeup because “natural” is the only way well let me enlighten you. Everyone likes to believe that people (I’m not going to say women but I know a few fabulous men who wear makeup as well and they look gorgeous) < don’t judge go somewhere else for that 🙂 anyways back to what I was saying Everyone likes to believe that people wear makeup because it has some kind of magical power to make you into something or someone else well let me bring on the bad news it doesn’t turn you into anyone else if your a b* without makeup your still a b* when you put it on, not to say it can’t give the illusion of being someone else hint hint (Drag Queens) but at the end of the day those queens still know who they are and the people around them still know who they are it isn’t their makeup that makeup its the person behind it. I have days that I just want to be natural and I want to wear my freckles yes people I’m African American and I have freckles lol, then their are days will I will do a quick 15 minute face concealer, mascara, one eye shadow & a little gloss, but then there are days that I want to really enhance my beauty and I take a hour just to do my makeup.
It has always been my opinion that makeup should only be used to enhance the beauty that is already there. To help those beautiful eyes pop, to give those gorgeous cheek bones a little lift & color. I look at makeup like a art people can judge me if they want I’m fine with that but any time I put on my makeup I look at my face as my canvas and my makeup as my paint, When you start with a blank canvas anything is possible and you only add to the canvas you can’t change that its a canvas but you can enhance that canvas ( just my out look of it) and for you men who say you were deceived by her appearance because of the makeup she wore lets get real you knew she was wearing makeup when you met her stop playing the victim. When I started dating my fiance I wore makeup all the time, one day I decided I wasn’t going to and he still loved the way I looked freckles and all. When I do wear makeup it isn’t to please anyone, it isn’t because I’m insecure or that I’m trying to be someone I’m not, It is to enhance the beauty that my man sees every day, the eyes that he loves to look into, the lips that he loves to kiss. When you decorate a tree you don’t think that the tree is trying to be something else right? NO because underneath it is still a tree. So at night when I take off my makeup I am still a mommy, a soon to be wife, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, I still try to be a humble person (doesn’t always happen but I can admit that), I act not differently makeup or no makeup. If that person is a sweet heart 9/10 out of they will still be a sweet heart when the makeup gets taken off and the house clothes get thrown on. ❤
WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID PEOPLE PLEASE LOVE YOURSELVES, WHO CARE WHAT THE NEXT PERSON HAS TO SAY BECAUSE SOMEONE SOMEWHERE KNOWS YOUR WORTH. ❤
In a later post I will talk about my makeup and what products I personally enjoy using. I will also cover how I manage to take a hr out for makeup and still pay attention to my munchkins.
