Makeup and Self-Love (Video)

This week is Body Image Awareness week and self-love is a hot topic at the moment. I wanted to raise a question to you in relation to this “Does wearing makeup, doing your hair, wearing the latest fashion mean that you don’t have self-love”? Because from time to time I have seen this insinuated and I just wanted to have a conversation with you around this and share my opinion.

I understand that for some people (that don’t have self-love) they can use things like makeup, fashion etc to make themselves feel better but that is not what I am talking about here. For me, wearing makeup, doing my hair and wearing nice clothes is a form of self-care and self-love. When I feel beautiful in myself I want to look after myself and dress beautifully, wear makeup that enhances my beauty and that is ok. I only put on my skin pure, natural, organic products because I love and cherish myself.

I really want to have a conversation with you around this and hear your opinion gorgeous. Because I feel that looking beautiful and putting on some red lipstick, high heels and getting your hair did’ is the highest form of self-care and self-love. It’s a treat for yourself. I think that there is nothing wrong with it at all. Most days of my week I am makeup free and all natural, but when I do decide to wear makeup and gorgeous clothes I love it! And it’s not because I am hiding imperfections or don’t love who I am!

I would love to hear your opinion on this gorgeous. Do you agree or disagree?

To Health & Beauty,

    Hi Dani,
    I do agree with you, I love to get dressed up and put makeup on unfortunately for me my skin has been a bit of a problem for the last couple of months, however after my holiday I do feel more relaxed just haven’t had the opportunity to really get dressed up. I think he jury is out on whether I do love myself or not, I know I am very critical of myself.

    Look forward to chatting with you soon.

    Very True Dani! I love this, I feel the same way. Applying makeup isnt about hiding our beauty and applying makeup until we cannot even recognise ourself. Its about enhancing our natural beauty. It feels special getting ready for a dinner or special event.

      So glad that you agree Kristen! You are completely right. It is all about enhancing and loving what you see in the mirror. It is about taking the time to care for yourself and treat yourself kindly by adorning yourself with gorgeous things. It has nothing to do with hiding or not approving of who looks back at you in the mirror. Hope you are well gorgeous, I am excited that I can be part of your special celebration in a few months xx
