“I love the confidence that makeup gives me.”-Tyra Banks
My fiance is always wondering why I insist on needing 2 hours to get ready. He typically just wants me to continue cuddling with him, but I need to hop up and start doing my thing.
I know how ridiculous it sounds for it to take 2 hours to get ready to go somewhere. And, of course, I have my extremely shortened versions when I need to go somewhere fast, I can get out the door in no time!
But for me, my beauty routine is a time for me to be creative and relax, it is my everyday therapy & meditation time. I need enough time, so I don’t feel rushed, so that I can take the time to feel beautiful.
According to an Allure Magazine survey, “97 % of women say they feel more confident when they use their favorite beauty products.” I’m not encouraging you to go out and constantly spend money on beauty products, I’m simply sharing with you what helps me feel good. What helps me feel good, is taking the time to care for myself and beautifying myself.
Recently, one of my beautiful girl friends has been going through a really rough time with her self-esteem and confidence. Looking at her you would wonder why, because she is gorgeous, super talented, and has a really sweet heart. I think everyone struggles with this at some point in their lives. Feeling bad about yourself, feeling like you aren’t good enough, pretty enough, comparing themselves to others. PLEASE DON’T do that to yourself. Even I have insecurities and days where I don’t feel pretty, but I don’t let it eat at me. It can destroy you. You are who you are, and you need to accept that. Luckily, there are things that you can do to help.
Here is what I do on those days, and I do a little bit of this everyday for myself. . . I find that it helps in some way to spend some time on myself. It’s sort of an anti-insecurity day, by shopping for new makeup, hair products, by simply applying my makeup in a new way, doing my nails, spa treatments, a new hair cut, etc. Taking the time to do these things for yourself can boost your confidence. They really do help a little bit with feeling good about yourself. Obviously, it won’t solve all of your problems, those are within and mentally you need to work on it, but I think that when you do something of this nature, it can put you in a better mental state and in the right direction.
