This morning, I woke up, looked in the mirror, and noticed that the gross spots I had yesterday were just as red, and just as gross. When it comes to blemishes and spots and greasy skin, I generally take it in my stride. I mean, what can you really do?
Covering up blemishes is all well and good, but I can never shake the feeling that under all that concealer they’ll just end up looking worse! I try to keep my skin clean and keep a fairly decent skincare routine, but sometimes you just can’t help it.
I just get so tired of seeing the layers upon layers of makeup people feel the need to put on to cover up blemishes that are completely natural. If you want to cover up, that’s cool. If you don’t, that’s also cool. What ISN’T cool is putting on heavy makeup to cover up your skin because you’re ashamed, or embarrassed, or pressured into because of stupid memes on the internet.
I don’t know. It took me a long time to get to a place where I wasn’t too fussed about the odd spot here and there, and was happy to go out without makeup if I fancied. I just want people to be more open to accepting people using as much or as little makeup as they want, embracing their skin type and doing what works for them!
