PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE OR TWO TO READ THIS!
I want to talk about the makeup community for a little bit, because I am currently feeling a lot of stress regarding the community here on Instagram.
First of all, I get loads of questions why I am doing this and what my reason is for wearing ‘loads of makeup’ every day. To all those people I want to say: I am doing this because makeup is my passion, and it has nothing to do with the fact that ‘I am insecure’ or ‘that I have a bad image of myself’, and I think most people on Instagram are doing makeup because they just LOVE doing it! Being insecure is something that made me start doing makeup, but doing makeup on Instagram is me just spreading my passion for makeup and THAT has nothing to do with me being insecure or me wanting to reveal the best side of myself!
Along with that, it is okay not to be perfect! Me working so hard for this page and not always having the time to do this, makes me wonder why I still do this, because I see all of these amazing people on Instagram with loads of followers and being acknowledged by huge brands, and feeling like I will never be like them. Personally, I always try new things and try to make the best of myself, and yes, sometimes the things I do on my face look horrible, but I still want to post it because I want to spread the love that I have for makeup, and that is all that matters! Sometimes, I do feel bad about the fact that I work so hard for my page and not getting the amount of followers and likes I feel like I deserve, and I just want to give up on this page. But, I learned I am doing this because I love to do makeup, and I am not doing this for the likes and for the followers, because that is not my focus, and please, PLEASE, don’t ever feel like this as well! You are beautiful, you are perfect in your own way! And when someone tells you to stop doing this because you will never be like them, or you think like this, tell them NO and keep on going please! You will be noticed, you will be big one day, but don’t ever feel stressed about this! Remember: you are doing this for yourself and not for other people, right? *More rant in comments ❤️*
