Hi guys, bit of a rant here tbh. I wanted to address this notion that people are ‘ugly‘ without their makeup. As i said in the video, i get a lot of comments on photos that i post on my Instagram (@stephanielangemakeup) such as:
‘This is Why Men Have Trust Issues‘
‘This is Why You Should Always Take a Girl To The Beach on a First Date’
‘She’s So Ugly Without Makeup!!’
…. and that i basically paint a new face on and ‘trick’ people into thinking i’m pretty – when i’m not.
This frustrates me, as I don’t want anyone to feel ashamed or embarrassed of their bare, makeup-free face. It’s comments like these that makeup girls AND boys who wear makeup, feel ugly when they’re not wearing it. With makeup you can highlight what you like, and disguise the parts that you don’t like; but either way it is still YOUR face underneath, and your face is something to be proud of – warts and all!
I hope this video wasn’t too rambley. I do tend to go off on tangents lol so i hope i got my point across!
The #transformationtuesday hashtag is already pretty saturated, but i wanted to upload before and afters on Tuesdays to show you guys that i am NOT ashamed of my bare face (flaws and all) nor am i ashamed of my face when it’s made up.
Share your #transformationtuesday photos with me (you can hashtag #stephanielange if you want to make sure i see them) if you want to; I hope that by me putting myself out there, i can help anyone else feel confident in their own skin too!!
