I admit that I love seeing my sisters seemingly bare-faced/with no makeup. Natural. I don’t care if they have acne, acne scars, blemishes or bumps. But, from the outside looking in, it’s so easy and instinctual to judge based on appearance alone. I often think
she doesn’t need all that makeup
she’s doing too much
or I bet she’s prettier without it
-never a thought of what she sees when she wakes up and looks in the mirror. Never a thought of how ugly she may think she is without a full face. Never a thought of how her confidence might zoom from 0 to 100 after she applies what she deems necessary. Never a thought that she could never even go as far as her mailbox without makeup in fear of being judged. Never a thought that if she did show her natural beauty, people would only see her “flaws.”
Sure, some ladies do overdo it, but many are just trying to look and feel their best to get through another day.
Her testimony was very sobering indeed.
