Finding Comfort in my Skin

Thinking about myself causes a weird flurry of emotions. When I was younger, I didn’t consider myself pretty and feminine. I really didn’t think about makeup until I was more self-conscious about my appearance. And even after getting interested in makeup, I didn’t get even remotely good at it until I was starting college.That’s not a terrible thing.

If I don’t feel like changing how I look, then I don’t have to change anything at all.

It’s a reassuring place to be. I don’t have to be something for anyone else. My significant other doesn’t seem to care if I wear makeup or not. My parents may care, but at my age it’s my choice to look however I do. Finding comfort in myself is about being happy. I don’t have to look for that in anyone else’s eyes.
