Surprisingly enough, makeup has become quite a controversial issue in today’s society. Many see it as harmful toward young peoples’ self-esteem and a promotion to the wrong type of body image when, in fact, it is the exact opposite. Makeup is a form of art used to express oneself to the world, build creativity, and boost confidence.

As children, we are taught and shown by society that makeup is a way of hiding instead of  a way of accepting who you are. Being told that it’s just for girls or that women have to wear it to be beautiful, however, this is not the case.

Makeup allows your skin to become a canvas of endless possibilities. One can go all out with foundation and false lashes, or wear only eyeliner. Makeup doesn’t have to do with just day to day looks; it can transform anyone into any character or bring imagination to life. With makeup, it is possible to be anyone or anything.

Having confidence is something most people have struggled with at some point in their lives. Whether it’s about weight or eyelashes, there is usually at least one thing people don’t like about themselves. Makeup gives control over insecurities by allowing more alone time and time to figure out one’s best features.

“What others think about you isn’t important, what you think about yourself means everything,” makeup artist Jeffree Star said.

Makeup doesn’t have a negative effect on people, but using makeup for the wrong reasons has a negative effect on people. With or without it, makeup gives the ability to show personality. People should not be afraid to express oneself – whether that means wearing loud and glittery eye shadow or none at all. Respect those who wish to use makeup as a creative outlet.
