We live in a generation that is obsessed with makeup. We see it all around us, especially on social media: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. They are overflowing with makeup tutorials, pictures and videos showcasing amazing makeup skills. How is that affecting us? Lately, I see people criticizing the makeup skills of others; they criticize people who like to wear bold makeup AND people who don’t wear any amount of makeup. Telling someone that they don’t look good without makeup can make people feel super insecure, but trying to stop a person from putting on makeup is also incredibly rude.
I think it’s perfectly ok for people to never leave the house without it and for people to never wear any amount of it. Personally, I have a love/hate relationship with makeup. Ever since I was little, I liked everything about beauty and fashion. I love how it makes people feel beautiful and how you can use your creativity to come up with looks. Makeup should be about having fun, but sometimes it isn’t, so here’s a list of pros and cons of makeup:
Makes you feel beautiful
No one can deny how makeup can boost our self-esteem like nothing else. It can change how we see ourselves and helps us feel comfortable in our skin.
I don’t know about you, but putting on makeup is like therapy. Usually, I put on some music and take my time to apply every product to create the look I want.
Makeup is like painting on your face. It’s always nice to try different things and techniques to make you look different and better than before.
Can’t go out without it

Girls can’t go out without makeup without being told we look tired or grumpy, which is a direct hit to our self esteem, making us feel our natural face and imperfections aren’t really accepted in society.
To look acceptable it requires time, which we don’t always have, so there are two options: Be on time and feel self conscious or be late and feel good. (Which is why many women, learn to multitask while driving)
It’s expensive and requires practice
Makeup isn’t cheap. The prices for quality products are ridiculously expensive and for a simple look one needs generous amount of products. However, it’s not only the products that do the work. If you’re not good with makeup it’ll make you feel inadequate anyway.
