This is one of my favorite pictures of me. Even though my smile is really fake, I love how expressive my eyes are. J Over the years, I’ve had a lot of trouble with my looks. During freshman year, I thought I was so ugly. I’d wear tons of foundation and eyeliner and it still wouldn’t affect the way I saw myself. I never noticed that what I was doing was wrong. I was making myself look like someone I wasn’t. I didn’t need all of that to be beautiful. Now, as a senior, I still like to wear foundation because I have terribly oily sensitive skin. But I don’t feel like wearing eye makeup makes me more beautiful than I naturally am. I love going to school feeling confident with no eyeliner, eye shadow, or mascara. I look at other people that wear all of that every day and wonder how different they would look without pounds of makeup. I wish everyone would see that they are beautiful no matter what. Maybe by my example, girls will realize that.
