Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.Sophia Loren
We all have our imperfections. But I’m human, and you know, it’s important to concentrate on other qualities besides outer beauty.Beyonce
Of course, my blog is about makeup artistry and all the lovely and creative looks we can achieve because of it. But I’m also a believer in the idea that true beauty comes from within. True confidence, happiness, and power – come from within.
I’ve said it many times and will continue to until I reach as many people as I possibly can: makeup can only hide our “flaws” for so long, we need to love ourselves for who we are besides just the outer shell.
It’s way easier said than done, trust me, I know. But one of the tricks I find helps me when I’m not particularly feeling too great about how I look or how I feel: I look in the mirror and instead of focusing on that negative thing, I smile at my reflection, say “you’re beautiful” out loud, and walk away.
It’s partially “fake it ’till you make it”, but most importantly it’s changing the self-deprecating thoughts we believe to be true into something way more powerful.
Because a woman who loves herself – has so much love to give others.
