Rate my makeup look!! ✨
So I’ve never really been one for doing my makeup. I’ve always hated it mainly because it just took too much effort and I never had the right products. But lately I’ve been working on it, trying to get better because doing my makeup actually makes me feel good about myself. I’m not the best but I feel like I’m getting better each time I try. What do you guys think?? Any tips/tricks I should look out for? I’ll do a rating of the products I’m using later and a tutorial of what I do. Thanks for the support. 😊💕

how i learned to feel beautiful no matter what🌸
hello everyone! todays topic is a little more different than other posts i have previously made. its a little more serious, but hopefully some of you can learn something from it💖 starting from the beginning of my life, i felt very akward and ugly. i was atleast a foot taller than all the other kids, and also had some issues that made me be a little strange. i felt very ugly as a kid. one of the reason i felt ugly was because of my face. im scandinavian and german, and my face heavily reflects that. i look very swedish, as i have blonde hair, green eyes, warm skin, a round nose, square face, and hooded eyes. im also very hairy, which was also embarrassing. either way, i always felt self conscious about my features. my nose has always made me feel bad. its very round and the end and my nostrils are pretty big. also, my face is so square that i could cut bread with my jawline. this was all amplified once i turned 11, and my mom told me i should wear makeup. i was really bad at it, and so i watched youtube videos. this actually made me feel even worse, because some of the girls i watched, like carli bybel, were very pretty and were “perfect” to me back then. i didnt understand why her eyes werent hooded and why mine were. so, i began to try to “fix” my face. i would do weird things like the kyle jenner lip challenge because i thought i HAD to have big lips. i use to put a chip clip on my nose to try to shrink it. obviously, this didnt work. once when i was about 14 or 15, i had a really bad zit i tried to cover with concealer. i didnt cover it too well, but i tried. a boy then said “oh look at that thing, haha you thought you could cover it.” this made me feel very bad, as i realized more people could see my flaws than just me. eventually, i got good at makeup when i was about 15 or 16. i had all the products i needed, and i could “fix” my face very easily. but this got tiring. i couldnt even go outside without makeup. this started making me feel like i was hiding my true self. so, i said screw it. i didnt wear makeup for a few days. it felt weird, but it felt natural. i felt authentic. i remember looking at myself in the mirror and smiling because i had remembered a really funny joke, and i thought my smile was really beautiful. i noticed in the mirror that my eyes were hooded, but they were also very green and pretty, and the hood almost drew attention to them. i noticed that my face is very square, but my jaw is very sharp. i learned that day that i was beautiful with or without makeup. yes, i have flaws. but not, i dont try to cover them. sure, i wear foundation, but i dont care to cover every pimple. i accentuate my hooded eyes instead of hide them. and i couldnt care less about my nose. i learned that you shouldnt cover or hide yourself. makeup is about accentuating your beauty, not covering it. i challenge you to not wear ANY makeup for a day. see if you can see your true beauty from your soul shine past your pimples❤️❤️
Let me know how I did!!
I just wanted to share a little before & after. Make up really does cover all of our sins 😂 I’m not even close to being a professional (that clearly shows 😂) I kinda just started really getting into it. Let me know what you think!!

Over-Exfoliated Skin: What To Do NextOver-exfoliation has a plethora of symptoms, ranging from redness and inflammation, tightness of the skin, dryness and flakiness, irritation bumps, rashes, breakouts, and a stinging sensation. With the rise in popularity of at-home chemical exfoliation, it’s easier than ever before to take it a step too far. Everyone is trying out TikTok-famous products like The Ordinary’s AHA 30% and BHA 2% Peeling Solution without an understanding of how strong it really is. Chemical exfoliation is all the rage now, due to its ability to clear up acne, even out the skin tone, and give you a glowy look. But none of these things will happen if you don't exfoliate properly!Sep. 29
