wear make up or not versus IT IS MY CHOICE

I'm the kind of person who wears a lot of make up or v little amount of make up or not at all, well basically I wear make up as much as I want or go bare skin outside if I feel like it. 

Most of the time, my make up is just for blog posts, mainly to add volume to my photographs, increase the visual beauty. I take myself as my art journal, add colors, take pretty pictures of me and blog about it. And then one day, it struck hard! Is it falseness, pretence, fake, double-dealing? & other horrifying thoughts. Well, I've realized it's not. 

Basically, make up is just an option for me. I apply the darkest lipstick for one occasion and try to contour my face (which I really suck at) or don't even apply anything on my face for the next occasion and I'm completely fine with it. 

I see people talking of  & supporting human beings who wear a lot of make up just because they want and it's actually a good thing to let people be happy with what they want to look like. It's such a humanly behaviour. But then I thought, what about people like me? Who wear make up sometimes, just sometimes. I went to a wedding with a bare face, a few women flinched (OMG THIS GIRL PUT NO MAKE UP ON SHE IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE LIPSTICK ON ) And I went to another wedding with a lot of make up, a few  more women flinched (OMG WHY IS SHE WEARING MAKE UP SHE DIDN'T WEAR IT LAST TIME) I wear it or not, it's just a v personal choice. I feel good when my skin is free of everything. But it also looks good to paint my face with eyeshadows and lipsticks. 

 Make up isn't a necessity. It's just a choice, an option. It's not drink your coffee, eat your breakfast, eat your make up kinda important if you don't want it to be.

Here enjoy my bare face. Oh I have beeswax lipbalm on (it's the one thing I can't live without, thx dermatitis) I just feel good in my skin, with make up on or not and it's the best thing a young person who have a paper skin with a lot of issue can ask for.

  1. I don't generally wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis, but I'll wear more for blog posts. I think you should wear the amount that makes you feel comfortable :)

  2. You look lovely! It's an interesting thought, though... even though we say "wear what you want" there's still the double standard when people do wear a lot of makeup. I personally don't (I'm terrible at applying it and just plain lazy tbh), but we should just do what makes us happy!

  3. I don't ever put heavy makeup on, the most I do is when I take photographs for my blog. I know exactly how you feel being the girl with little to no makeup on at a wedding. Particularly Asian weddings, oops. ^^

  4. I'm the same way. I don't need to wear makeup to feel good, but I enjoy wearing it! You're gorgeous by the way!

  5. As a makeup junkie and artist, this post resonated with me. Because yesterday, naked-faced Me went out in public and Mom said 'Oh, just put a little bit of lipgloss. You don't want to look THAT gross.'

    ...thanks mom.

    I don't wear makeup as often as people think. BUT I do wear a lot of makeup when I DO. Get it? For me, makeup makes me feel good but I don't need it to feel good every day. And when I do wear makeup, why shouldn't I go all out to my abilities? After all, when you can play Mozart, you won't stick to Twinkle Twinkle Litte Star right?
