“The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural” Calvin Klein

     While my husband says that I look beautiful without make up and prefers me that way (Is it hard to see why I love him so?  I think not.), I still like to don myself with a little extra coverage to feel like I've erased any minor or large blemishes.  I know my Heavenly Father didn't make any mistakes, but I believe that he also blessed us with challenges.  Makeup helps my facial challenges seem less dominant. 


     This might look like a lot of Makeup, but I don't use half of it most of the time.  I still like the natural flare that foundation, mascara, and blush give me and most days I don't add much to that except maybe some eyeliner.  For days and nights I'm feeling the need to be a little extra fun and fancy, I try to experiment a little with eye shadow.  I don't have amazing cosmetic skills so the experimenting is quite minimal.  My first experience with Makeup was when I was in dance, but then people were applying it for me and I had no idea what was really getting done.  I still wish I knew some of the cool tricks I see girls do with their eyelids.  As I got older, my mom finally let me start wearing lipstick.  I would say this was a mistake and that I should have gone for the mascara first, as I'm quite pale looking and this did nothing to help.  Honestly, I feel like I'm still figuring out what colors are best for me and I think most women and girls are that way.    Here's to a lifetime of figuring out the best way to make ourselves look pretty!  :)

I'm thankful for Makeup because it gives me that added boost of confidence when I put it on.
