Before the year ends, I give you something I learned this year.
Before, I use to treat makeup as something to hide behind in, cover my flaws and make myself disappear. Then, I saw myself disappearing. I was just eager to feel accepted and become like women with beautiful skin, straight perky nose and almond-shaped eyes.
Now, it's different! I use makeup as something to define who I really am inside. A woman with full of wonder and anticipation for life. One who feels confident inside, despite all the apprehension and fear. Yes, I still use makeup to cover my flaws like my blemishes, blotchiness and dark under eyes, but only to bring out the brightness in my eyes and smile.
I like that makeup has boosted not only my confidence but also my creativity. I like how I see certain things now. In all things, I'm a lot more positive and I just have a whole new appreciation for life.. and all this because I choose to use a simple as a concealer as a weapon. Not of mass destruction (LOL.) but to win against insecurities, against fear and self-doubt.
So find that certain something. It doesn't have to be makeup. It could be a gadget, a hobby or anything at all that will bring out the light in you. :)
That's it for my last post for 2012! Welcome 2013 with all confidence and love, not only for yourself but also for your loved ones!
Love you all!
