Underneath it All

Celebrities are guilty of it. Cheerleaders are guilty of it. Models are guilty of it. So are business women, stay-at-home moms, and any woman who has every visited a MAC counter. Guilty of what?

Wearing the mask.

We all wear the mask. Whether you call it putting on your face, putting on make-up, painting your face, or beating your face, it’s all the same…an alteration. And one thing that rings true is this…if you wear make-up on a regular basis, you will always have to wear make-up on a regular basis. Period.

If you don’t, your natural face will look “weird” to the people who see you without makeup. Case in point…I often go to work very early in the morning (around 6:15 a.m.) and put my make-up on while at work, before my day begins. Usually there isn’t anyone here that early. But, a few times, there have been some co-workers here, and they always want to stop and talk. They don’t say anything, but I can tell by the way that they look at me that they are wondering what’s going on with my face.

My skin has a few dark spots, my eyelashes are faint, my eyebrows are frazzled (unless I’ve just gotten them done), my lips are dry, and I just don’t look “like myself.”

It’s the same with most other women too. Make-up is the mask we wear. Just look at the extreme example below (which is not me, btw). It just goes to show that cosmetics can really make a difference.

    1. That is so true. Good skin care is essential. Some women skimp on skin care products and routines and focus more on coverup, but if you maintain a good skin care routine it takes a lot less makeup, if any, to make you look gorgeous.
