When I was fourteen years old, in my freshman year of high school, I auditioned for a musical and became a part of it. For the shows we had to wear stage makeup, but the idea was the same–eyeshadow, lipstick, blush, foundation, eyeliner, mascara, etc. Until then I had never really wanted to wear makeup, even though I’m a person that has terrible under-eye darkness. I didn’t care for makeup and never thought I would either. But after the show I realized how much better my face seemed to look with makeup on, and I was no longer happy with my normal face. My mom allowed me to begin wearing makeup, and I started wearing mascara, eyeliner, and blush. Then I realized that I was no longer comfortable with my natural face. It seemed to make me rethink what I was doing. This is a picture of me without makeup, and now I only wear makeup on special occasions. I hope all you girls know that God put a lot of thought into making you, and He wants you to appreciate that. Don’t cover up your flaws, because in His eyes, there are no flaws!
