Good Morning blogger babes , beauty enthusiast here to tell you about why your beauty products are good for you and what your beauty bag says about you!
SO ….If your like me you have about a million lipsticks and lip balms in your beauty bag and ALL of them are my favorite. I can go bare face and natural all day long but I have to have something on my lips at all times! For me confidence is KEY! I feel so amazing when my face is beat and its glistening in the sunlight. There is no better feeling then knowing you look flawless.
With confidence being my key factor, statistics say that 73% of people say cosmetics improve their quality of life & 80% say cosmetics build self esteem, which I’m sure we can all agree. I want to also reiterate that there is nothing and I mean ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with being Natural and showing off those beautiful flaws,
Which leads to me to my next big factors. Women wear makeup for many reasons
- As a CONFIDENCE BOOST, as I stated previously, Researchers put the ‘lipstick effect’ to the test and found female students who wear makeup cognitively benefit from the psychological phenomenon in which wearing it leads to higher self-esteem. – “Harvard Medical School and the University of Chieti”. –
- SELF EXPRESSION and character is also key. 48% of women who wear makeup said, Makeup is not about hiding yourself, it’s about enhancing yourself.
- Lastly, FOR POWER. Students shared that often times women wear makeup to exert control over appearances.
Bobbi Brown, the founder of her namesake cosmetics line, suggested that focusing on others’ perceptions misses the point of what makes makeup powerful. “We are able to transform ourselves, not only how we are perceived, but how we feel,” she said. -“skin deep by Catherine Saint Louis”-
Now With all these amazing facts lets talk personality. Whats your beauty personality? Women have many ways of showing off their personality. The way they dress, the way they talk , but nothing grabs more of an initial attention as their makeup. There are vast amount of styles and different variations of ways of applying makeup which gives women the potential to be whoever the hell they want to be. There is nothing holding them back.
Harvard study and Cover Girl showed that red lipstick wearers are perceived as creative. If your into the Long lashes study shows it make your eyes look bigger, which makes you seem more trustworthy.
& if power is your type of thing, the wealthy Ancient Egyptians used to paint their nails dark color to execute power.
The beauty of all this is people can walk by you and get a glimpse of your life just by the way you dress your face up. That is why its essential to love yourself and be confident in your skin. Us women are very powerful so why not OWN THAT, through your sense of style or the way you apply your makeup. Be you and everything else will follow.
