The truth about makeup isn’t simple.
It’s often over complicated and under appreciated. It’s distorted and blurred by society, and over shadowed and belittled by the media.
You see, the truth isn’t just black and white. Makeup is a form of art which is valued in many different ways by many different people. People wear it for different reasons, with different desires goals, and desired outcomes. The only rule in makeup is that there are no rules in makeup.
But still, time may have taken makeup’s true purpose away from us.
Most people forget that makeup was actually around a long time ago. A long, long time ago. 12,000 years ago, to be more specific. Way before society told us it was necessary, and way before the media forced a certain look upon us.
The Egyptians wore makeup way back then – to support spirituality and individuality. This was Makeup’s true purpose.
The beauty of makeup is that we can make it what we want it to be – with no reason to explain ourselves. Again. Makeup is an art.
But do we now wear Makeup to fuel creativity, and inspire individuality? Or do we wear it to look the same as society’s expectation tells us to look?
Only you can answer that question.
Is it reasonable to demand explanation for a certain type of person wearing a certain type of Makeup?
Makeup is a form of creativity. It is an art that can be explored, and a therapeutic form of motion that can trigger emotion deep down.
The truth about makeup is that there is no truth, only opinion. We can make of it what we wish, and do with it what we desire.
But just remember one thing,
Makeup is an art, and it has no rules. Go & explore.
