I recently got my lash extensions removed and loved this new free feeling. It inspired me to continue with a minimal makeup routine that truly makes me happy in the morning when I’m getting ready. No heavy foundation, no mascara; the only thing I’m wearing is a light powder, some bronzer, and a little lip color. For me, this is huge! A lot of my insecurity stem from my complexion. As I would get more insecure, I would pile on more makeup to make myself feel “beautiful”. ⠀
Regardless of if I have a breakout or long luscious lashes, what makes me beautiful is me. My mindset, my confidence, my love for myself. ⠀
Do I LOVE this picture of myself? Not really. I am still getting used to seeing myself this way and still dealing with insecurities, but I have noticed an increase in my confidence recently that I don’t want to give up.
Does anyone ever feel beautiful when they look in the mirror, but then you go to take a selfie and it doesn’t seem to work out? Straight up me in this picture lol
