There are dark, monstrous self-image problems snarling in my past. I hated my face and felt the need to drag myself behind a mask of makeup every day…a mask I loved and hated and served. The shame I felt is called as dysmorphia—it is embraced by us and overcome by Christ.

    Today, the only makeup I wear is mascara and occasional eyeliner. Sometimes I smear foundation all over my face again, but every single time, I shake my head at my reflection and wipe it off. I was created by God, not Mary Kay. And His image is nothing but beautiful. <3

    1. You have the prettiest eyes I have ever seen! They look like little…um…blue gems that have a name I can’t think of at the moment…Topaz? No, those are yellow…We’ll go with little pieces of the sky. That sounds nice. Beautiful!

    2. Aww thank you girls <3 =) I would have looked at/responded to these comments sooner, but I only JUST figured out today that you could join this site for free! I used to think you had to pay to join at all, lol. But you guys are so sweet. No one “needs” makeup 🙂
