Why Wearing Makeup is Not False Advertising

Makeup is not a mask. Makeup is Art. Makeup is Passion. Makeup is Expression.- Unknown

I started wearing makeup when I was around thirteen. Before then, I had worn blush and lipstick for dance recitals, but never on a daily basis. When I started wearing makeup, it was safe to say that I didn't really know how to use it properly. I only wore some slight eyeliner and mascara and a little bit of blush. But as I grew older, I ended up loving wearing makeup. I love experimenting with it. I loved that it was an art form other than painting and drawing that I was actually good at. And get this. I wear it because I like how I look with it. Not because I want other people to think I am prettier or put it on for boys to ogle at. I wear it because it is an art and a way of expressing myself. Some days I want a natural look. Some days I want a bold look. And makeup gives you so many options. I think of makeup as clothing in a sense. It is there as an expression of my personality, as an enhancement of my features, as a way of being creative.

It bothers me when some people have such a negative view on makeup. They say it's false advertising. They say that anyone who wears makeup everyday must think that they are ugly. And yes, maybe there are some girls who put on makeup to feel better about themselves. I know some days I can fall victim to that. But a majority of girls wear makeup just to appreciate themselves. To pamper themselves and to feel creative. We don't all think of it as a mask and neither should anyone else. Judging someone's face full of makeup is just as bad as judging someone without makeup. It still hurts and does not get a person anywhere in life.

I sure as hell do not care if someone thinks I wear too much makeup. That's because it is my face, and they are one opinion out of thousands. Anyone who says you wear too much makeup (in a rude way), should not be paid attention to. If you feel the need to point out others' "flaws" (I say this in quotes because often times someone thinks someone has a flaw when really they don't,), then you should maybe focus on yourself and the flaws you think you have. That would get you way further in life than making others feel bad.

Remember: Makeup is for you and only you. It should not be worn to please anyone else (and should also not be taken off to please anyone else).

P.S. This is not meant to bash the many girls who go makeup free everyday. We are all bad bitches and we all deserve praise for however we go about our life.

P.S.S. I mention girls in this article, but I am very inclusive to all the wonderful boys and men who wear makeup too. You go out there and be flawless with your highlight!

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.


10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."


18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

5 Wedding Hairstyles For The Bride With Rapunzel-Like Hair

Stunning wedding hairstyles especially for brides with longer hair.

658

In the event that you have long hair and you are making sense of how to manage your hair for the big day, perusing this may very well spare you.

More often than not, Rapunzel-like ladies are frightened of getting excessively hair covering the front of her face under the cloak. Being too wild is likewise one issue, so some resort into getting it trimmed or abbreviated for the event. However, that shouldn't be the situation.

Here are a couple of beyond any doubt methods for wearing your long hair upon the arrival of the wedding without the need of shedding a couple of inches.

1. Lay it down straight

Got lovely, stick straight and impeccably gleaming hair? Display it out and don't let the cover out sparkle it. Get a headband type tiara to help shield the strands from straying into your face as you state "I do."

Ensure that your hair won't choke you as the breeze blows or be snared in the beading subtleties of the outfit. Check if the length of the hair won't barge in the outfit's trimmed or style.

2. One-sided

Breadth the majority of your locks to the other side, contingent upon which side you believe you are most OK with. Just the ladies with long bolts can pull off this look. Extra adornments like a little tiara brush or blossoms can be added to the haircut to give it a little edge and energy.

The hair can be prodded for more volume or twisted at the base for a progressively fantastic look.

3. Sensational twists

Either by a hair curler or a perm treatment, twists bring out sentiment and body to your wedding look. On the off chance that you are going for the twists to be restricted to the lower half of your hair, the headband tiara still works incredibly as an emphasis.

A touch up may be required if the twists are escaping before the supper has even begun.

4. Half up, half down

Half dos are perfect in the event that despite everything you need to have your hair down to light up your face yet don't need your grin to be concealed. Some hairdressers can even make a rose, smaller than expected bun or a complete style with your hair at the back. Concerning adornments, an exquisite yet straightforward tiara would work — not excessively but rather sufficiently only to shimmer.

5. The exemplary bun

Definitely, a major bun over the lady of the hour's hair delegated with a complex wedding tiara is everything necessary. Indeed, long hair might be a waste on the off chance that just kept covered up at the same time, envision the conceivable outcomes all on the grounds that the beauticians inspire a great deal of material to work with.

With the likelihood of interlaces, twirls, circles, prodding and weaving the look of the bun won't be much the same as some other out there. Matched with crowns and tiaras folded over the bun, this great lady of the hour look has been the one you've been longing for since age six.
