NO AMOUNT OF MAKEUP CAN MASK AN UGLY HEART
-Kevyn Aucoin (one of the best, brightest makeup artists ever)
Nor can it mask insecurities, a broken heart, or a host of other negative things. Makeup is meant to trick the eye, be fun, and help us feel beautiful and confident. It is so important to keep this in mind because there is no magic cream or eye liner that will make everything better.
It is also important to remember that those with whom we most often compare ourselves, aka celebrities, have an army of stylists, makeup artists, nutritionists, personal trainers, assistants, and, let us not forget, photo shop technicians, creating an image that is far from “normal.”
Wayne Goss, a British makeup artist who I follow religiously and will reference often, expresses my sentiments far more eloquently in this video. My goal is to make you comfortable enough to be your own makeup artist, but that will never happen if you chose to ignore the beauty that is already there.
