The Beauty Beneath the Mask

Throughout the generations society has become insecure, afraid to be put down for the way they look. We have been raised in a way that has made us uncomfortable in our own skin. We cover our faces in a mask of makeup, putting on a show for everyone around us. We choose to play dress up to build our confidence and make people believe we are someone we are not. But for what?

“Makeup is not a tool meant to make an ugly thing beautiful, it is meant only to magnify the beauty that already exists.”

Sadly, society is too afraid to show who they truly are, due to years and years of being told we aren’t good enough, or having our flaws pointed out and made fun of. But come on, we are all human, we all have flaws, and we also have feelings. If someone doesn’t accept who you are, regardless of how much makeup you put on, are they worth trying to impress? Eventually people will figure out the truth.

We all have insecurities and choose to hide them in different ways. I’m not saying we shouldn’t where makeup or dress up, however we shouldn’t use these things to alter our personality. Instead we should use it as a creative outlet to express ourselves and enhance our personality, not let it become our personality.

Taking off the makeup isn’t always easy; however, we should never be ashamed of the way we look. In the same way we should never judge anyone else for how they look. Feel free to wear however much makeup you desire, just know the beauty beneath the mask. We are all beautiful with and without makeup.

Judgement often roots from personal insecurities and jealousy, but that shouldn’t give anyone the right to pass judgement. But whatever the case, it’s always best to point out good qualities instead of the bad. Life is more enjoyable when you stop focusing on the flaws and start focusing on the positive.
