My Mom: “Cute! Did Rosie do your makeup?
My brother: “Whats wrong with your face?”
Soooo it went over really well when I showed up to Sunday dinner lookin like this (hand covering face emoji)
Heres the thing, I like playing with makeup. I’m not good at writing or speaking, I can’t draw or paint, I’m crap at arranging flowers and designing a website. But makeup is my creative outlet (not always great at this either but I’m passionate about it!) It’s not always going to be super everyday wearable makeup cuz that can get boring to me.
I went in to the bathroom after these comments, cried a little bit and then wiped it off. Its hard putting yourself out there. I didn’t want to have to defend myself and convince anyone that it was my art. And right after I did that, I was mad. I have stood up for myself because I liked it!
Lesson learned. And just know that if you ever see me out in public, theres a good chance I’ll have some crazy makeup on!
I hope you have something that helps you express yourself and pushes you to keep improving on your skills in that area, regardless of what others think about it! Tell me what your creative outlet is in the comments!
