Self Love Sunday

Hello my lovelies, it’s that time of the week again. Thank you so much for all the positive comments on last Sundays post, it is such an incredibly important topic to talk about and make aware so I am so grateful for everyone who viewed it. Today I am talking about natural beauty and how everyone’s natural beauty is different to them. So let’s go…
Natural beauty typically means embracing yourself without enhancing it with makeup or plastic surgery. However, today natural beauty is personally in my opinion being enhanced and that for definite shouldn’t be looked down upon. Some people are born with something that they don’t like about themselves, for some they don’t like themselves without makeup, for people like me they adore doing their makeup. However, this doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy embracing a clean, fresh face because trust me I do and my skin thanks me for it. It also makes me appreciate my natural self a bit more every time I brave going anywhere without makeup on, but this is a massive confidence/anxiety problem for me. There is many different reasons for enhancing your natural beauty but in no way are they wrong and in no way should people slate you for being you. What I am trying to say though is if you want to change something about you do it and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise but don’t forget to love yourself for who you are and what you look like. That is the most important part.

Social Media is a problem for self love!
I 100% think that because of social media and the media itself is one of the massive reasons behind people wanting to wear more makeup or changing their appearance using plastic surgery. You see a photograph on Instagram of your favourite celebrity and you instantly compare yourself to the picture in front of you. Instantly making you want to be more like that person or in fact having their beauty. Why do we do this? There is always something with your beauty that you want to change and when you see a picture on social media this triggers that sensor. This is extremely sad but of course it happens.

Blogger Influence 
I am a sucker for this one. A blogger or YouTuber shows a makeup product and I am straight away wanting to be on the bandwagon. We trust their opinions and so therefore we go buy. My mum always says to me I don’t need more makeup, but mum you can’t have enough makeup. Trust me haha! I am not saying that buying makeup is a bad thing, hell no! What I am trying to say is that for people like me who have a passion for makeup are never going to stop wearing makeup. Yes, as I said earlier I love a fresh face but it will never beat a face of makeup. I love playing around with different looks and yes enhancing my features. Does this mean I don’t love my natural beauty? Maybe, but I am certainly trying to embrace my beauty for what it is without any enhancements. I think this is very important and hard in today’s world to get to grips with but you need to love yourself for you! If I can do it and at least three people reading this can too, then surely so many more can right?
Embrace your natural beauty as much as you embrace a full face of makeup or plastic surgery enhancements. And yes that means me to. We’ve got this girls and boys.

    Another fab post! Love your self-love posts. I’m the same, I wouldn’t go out in public without makeup but I agree, instagram is a big influence. My daughter is 12 and always looking at photoshopped images. It’s wrong but it’s the world we live in these days.

    This is so true! I hate going anywhere without makeup on I just feel so bare and uncomfortable. My mum is the same sometimes telling me I don’t need anymore makeup but when you love it it’s just like a collection and people don’t realise that. It’s the equivalent of collecting anything so it shouldn’t be looked down upon so much! Love this post

    I’m quite lucky that I don’t actually mind going anywhere without makeup on, I tend to go makeup free every day for work and then wear makeup on the weekend if I’m going out somewhere nice. It definitely is important to recognise and not dislike your natural beauty – a good thing to do is look in the mirror and tell yourself a few positive things that you do like about your face, rather than constantly picking up on the negatives just because they ‘stand out’ more 🙂 xo

    Really love this! I for one get anxiety about my skin without makeup when I go out but I’ve been embracing it more, when my skin is a little better I make my self go out without makeup and I did that today! I agree that social media and especially Instagram is a problem too! Clare xx | https://www.clayaa.com
