Make-up: Who Needs it? Part II

Hello everyone, I’m back to continue my series about how you should embrace your truely natural look and ditch the makeup.

Anyone, woman, man, transgender, queer, bisexual, however you want to identify, who has used makeup on daily basis knows that it clogs up your pores and does really nasty things to your skin if left on for too long. To this I say why bother? Just skip this step and forgo the makeup all together. Chances are, unless you’re in Hollywood or the entertainment industry and need it to achieve a specific look for the camera, you don’t really need it. In the end, all makeup really does is put a drain on your wallet. This is especially so if you feel you need to go for the more expensive brands such as Clinque and Channel.

Please trust me when I say that there are a lot better things you could spend your money on. These could include helping the homeless, victims of disasters natural and otherwise, animals who are victims of abuse, wildlife society, guide dog foundations, cancer research and so much more. Hell, even if I did have money for makeup, I would refuse it and donate it to someone/something that needed the money so much more than me.

The next time you look in the mirror, I urge you to ask yourself if you really need makeup or you’re just doing it because society says you have to look a certain way. Just because we don’t naturally look a certain way, doesn’t mean we should have to conform to it. We should be free to look however we want…to an extent of course. What I mean by this, is that we shouldn’t look or smell like we haven’t bathed/showered in over a week. Honestly, what is wrong with being our natural selves? When did looking natural without the use of makeup become a taboo?

Someone please answer the above two questions for me in the comments down below and I will see you in the next post in this continuing topic.
