The word ‘beauty blogger’ sums up a particular image in a lot of people’s heads; someone who has bucket loads of lipsticks stashed in some gorgeous storage system, wears layers of crap on her face everyday and just looks hella good 90% of the time. And while none of that is true, I still do have some pretty makeup storage…
Bur seriously, being a beuaty blogger people kinda expect things from you. And although I wouldn’t necessarily class myself as a beauty blogger, my instagram feed kinda says otherwise. So you may be surprised to find that actually, on a daily basis, I barely wear any makeup at all. That’s right, I’m a fake.
I joke, I joke, I am not a fake. But I am not the kinda girl who wears a bright red lip when she’s popping to the shops, or a winged liner on the daily. Nope.
I am the kind of girl who will slap on a BB cream (or the IT cc cream which I am LOVING at the moment- but thats for another post), a swish of mascara, brows and a tiny bit of the nudest lipstick ever. And thats it, That’s all I do.
Now a lot of you may be surprised by this and may even question why. And the truth is, its because I odn’t enjoy wearing a crap tonne of makeup on the daily. Sure I love experimenting with it and trying out different looks, but when I have 15 minutes to get ready in the morning, I DO NOT faff around.
I think there is a bit of a stigma surrounding minimal makeup at the moment, especially with bloggers. But I just wanted to make a post to say that, you know what? It’s okay to no like wearing layers on your face. It’s even okay to leave the house with a naked face if you are happy to (which BTW I do waaaay to regularly).
Don’t ever feel conformed to a certain way and dont ever feel like you have to do something you dont want to. You do you girl.
