How to build a positive relationship with makeup

It is an extremely important act to build a positive relationship with makeup, as it can help boost self-confidence, enhance self-expression, and serve as a creative outlet. Always remember that makeup is an extension of you and not the real you. It is just a creative tool to enhance your already existing features. Here are some of our top tips that can help you in building a positive relationship with makeup:

Understand your motivation: Consider and reflect on why you want to use makeup. Is it for self-expression, self-confidence, self-love, or artistic purposes? Understanding your motivation will help you make better choices when it comes to choosing the right makeup products.

Embrace your natural beauty: Makeup exists to accentuate your natural features, not mask them. Learning to appreciate yourself without makeup is an extremely important act and we highly encourage you to do so. 

Find your style: Just like different body types, we also have different facial features, skin tones, and skin types. It is extremely important to understand what makeup products would fit in the best. Try to play around with different shades of lipstick, blushes, eyeshadows, and various other makeup products to see what complements your style the most.

Skincare first: Always remember, that makeup applies best on smooth and healthy skin. Removing makeup at the end of the day following a skincare routine that suits your skin type is an extremely important step for keeping your skin healthy and glowing. 

Don’t compare: There is no need to compare yourself to others, especially on social media. Real skin has texture and it is important to remember that most people use filters and perfect lighting to make their makeup pictures look “perfect” on social media. 

Practice gratitude: Be grateful for the ability to use makeup as a tool for self-expression and confidence. Practicing gratitude can help you to reinforce a positive relationship with makeup. 

Always remember that makeup should be a fun and empowering tool, not a source of pressure or insecurity. Building a positive relationship with makeup is a personal journey, so take your time to find what works best for you and make you feel confident and happy.
