Have you ever been criticized of wearing too much makeup? A lot of women are often criticized of wearing too much makeup and are referred as cake-face while others who don’t wear any makeup at all, they either look sick or tired. A woman is expected to be flawless, should be well-dressed at all times, well-mannered and a perfect natural beauty.
Beauty trends keep changing, there are times of thick brows and thin brows, matte lipsticks and glossy lipsticks, dewy look and matte look, face contouring trend and now we have strobing. The makeup industry will continue to bring new trends,but are you ready and makeup confident?
By Makeup Confident I mean, there are days when you feel confident and look great with the kind of makeup you put on. It not only brightens your day but also gives you a confident fresh start for the day ahead. So do you feel good about yourself with the kind of makeup you use? Are there makeup products that make you feel confident? For me wearing a lipstick is an instant confidence booster and mood lifter. It not only makes me feel good, brightens my face but makes it look alive too.
I’m a minimal makeup person but that doesn’t mean I don’t like the full makeup look. I admire beauty in all its forms and see makeup as a personal choice. I certainly believe in the use of makeup to feel more confident about one’s self. Whether you use it too little or too much,
Here I’m sharing my Feel Pretty Be Confident Look, the one I feel comfortable wearing and that helped me kick my makeup insecurities and made me confident.
1. Be comfortable in your own skin
Not everyone is blessed with naturally, flawless skin. At least I’m not, I have acne prone skin.
How to achieve happy skin?
CTM ” Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize” make it a part of your daily routine, it takes 5 minutes and you have clean and happy skin.
Proactiv 3-step System kit has worked for me. (more information here)
2. BB Cream Vs. Foundation
As mentioned I’m a minimal makeup person so instead of a foundation, I use a BB cream. Generally a foundation gives you a nice coverage and evens out your skin, I feel it a bit too much for myself specially in summers. Whereas a BB cream is light, blends well, even out skin, provides coverage and is an all-in-one product.

3. Set Powder
Dust some powder to give a finishing touch to the skin.

4. Brighten your eyes
Make your eyes look awake and bright. Make them pop with a liner or a mascara and a little shimmer in the inner corners of the eye.

5. Add a pop of color
Give your cheeks some pop of color. It will instantly add color to your face and brighten it too.

6. Finish off
Finish the look with your favorite lipstick. I love wearing lipstick and sometimes only a liner and a lipstick is all I do and love it.

7. Be your kind of beautiful!
You’re beautiful the way you are. Don’t let others make you feel bad about yourself or your beauty choices, wear makeup the way you like it and be confident. If you like it natural go natural, just kick all those makeup insecurities, start loving yourself and feel pretty and confident about yourself. There is never “right” or “wrong” makeup it’s always “my kind of makeup”.
Wear your “My Kind of Makeup” and be Makeup Confident!
