The power of Makeup

Good evening beautiful people.

For a while I have been promising this blog to go live – well, tonight is the night! I have got some time to really dedicate myself to this!

For the other beauty junkies like me out there, you have most probably already heard the term “The Power Of Makeup”. And it all started with the absolute queen that is NikkieTutorials, who, pretty much, broke the internet not too long ago.

Ever since this video she created, I have been HOOKED on her tutorials!

But recently, it got me thinking. I spend a good portion of my life experimenting with my makeup, trying new looks, buying new products, and generally staring at the mirror in the morning.

I have no problem with being makeupless, however when I wear it I feel practically invincible! I love the power it gives me, the confidence it brings (although not always needed for me, lol!) and I just genuinely have a passion for it. There’s something pleasing about applying makeup, it’s for sure a form of art in my opinion and I can transform my face into whatever emotion I feel. Incred, am I right?

ANYWAY! Side note! I decided to write this blog after taking this before and after:

before and after

before and after

Other than absolutely slaying my makeup, I genuinely recognised how I had transformed my entire face. Slimmer nose, bigger lips, defined brows, spots concealed. It’s magical.

I also recognised… A lot of the tips and tricks I have picked up are from the drag community… Baking, overlining my lips, faded brow, exaggerated cut crease.

I have no problem with natural looks, I like to let my face breathe too! But I genuinely find it so incredible that I can’t help but want to decorate my face every chance I can.

I’m not the only one that feels this way – here’s what some of my Facebook friends have said:

Gail Reynolds I think makeup can give women confidence that they otherwise wouldn’t have. 
Makeup is a simple expression of who we are. 
I love it.

Becca Martin Totally changes the way o feel!! I love the fact that eyebrows can have such a huge impact something ive never done before but I literally have none until now 

♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

Amanda Jane Thomas I go with my office job everyday with my makeup on and jewellery. If I didn’t I would go! I hate it and putting my face on painting my nails and putting costume jewellery on makes my day go so much better x

Lest we forget the times I have transformed in front of the camera. There’s just something so fun about it. Here’s one of my most popular transformations, using some of my favourite Avon products:

In the words of Charlotte Tilbury: Beauty is power, and makeup is something that really enhances that”

It’s got to be said, it’s why I stand by my company so much. Just have a read of this statement:

It’s Beauty that looks much deeper than the surface.

Beauty for a Purpose is anchored in a basic human truth: When you feel more beautiful, you see more beauty and create more beauty around you.

We know beauty empowers women to empower others. It’s something we see every day with our Avon Representatives. They are our heroines and our role models. They are a catalyst for changing lives.

Avon’s purpose is to create a world with more empowered women – by providing an earnings opportunity that helps them achieve independence through economic advancement.

Beauty for a Purpose also means giving our full support to causes that impact women. To date, we have donated nearly one billion dollars toward ending breast cancer and domestic violence.

To us, beauty is the journey, empowerment is the destination.

Who wouldn’t want to be a part of such a beautiful company, that not only supports makeup lovers but any womans journey into whatever path they are travelling?
