As i said make up is supposed to be used as a tool to enhance women’s features. But i know some women take it to the point of no return… The make up is no longer make up,it is straight up magic, the transformation is mind blowing!
Just look at this : fake lashes, fake hair, contact lens, tons of foundation/concelear/contouring….oh sweet Lord is just too much for me!
All this youtube “make up artist” it ‘s a reflection of the ideals or ideas that govern the lives of the vloggers(and that’s not a bad thing, that’s just their choice and that’s fine).
It is trendy and it is a lifestyle that is attractive to society. It has become the status quo.
Vlogging has become apart of this culture when it comes to women. Part of the reason, I think, is because, women are indoctrinated from childhood that their value is in the way they look. Everything around us from day one affirms to us that our purpose is to be desirable for a man. Our purpose is to be “the observed” and so we are encouraged to spend much of our time altering ourselves so that we are “attractive” objects.
The issue at hand is that there are not enough voices challenging this in the form of vlogs and blogs, and if you are not a critical thinker you will buy into it. The advice is great but often it is not balanced. Beauty topics seem to be the only or at least the most prominent dialogue going on between women on such platforms and for me that is scary and ridiculous. It’s a mask. Your cover your face with expensive face paint that makes your complexion smoother and your blemishes invisible. Not that this is a particularly bad thing. In my honest opinion Make-up and nail polish could never be that deep for me, I personally want to know I have the confidence in myself to know I could go out everyday without the shield of make up to protect me. I want to know I am comfortable in my own skin however, I respect the knowledge these women have, its commendable.
Stay Beautiful and remeber Less iS More!
