So, this is me, no frills –
I feel naked without makeup, I wear it every day, I’m at a stage in my life that I don’t think its possible for me to leave the house without my “face” on. I hate that I use that phrase as it sounds pathetic, and I never thought as a young woman I would say that, but my dark eyes, my pale, almost grey skin, (thanks scottish summer!) my lips, cheek bones, my FACE look a whole lot better, TO ME, when I have makeup on. I feel more comfortable, I feel like me.
There’s a problem I have though, my beautiful daughter.
When I’m putting my makeup on in the morning, painting my fingernails, shaving my legs, etc, she wants to do it too. I know its normal for little girls to want to be just like mum, I’m a good role model for her, I’m happy with that but when dealing with issue like self confidence and self perception, I just wonder what message I am sending her with my daily routine? Parenting life’s big issues is a difficult job.
Maybe its easier to let TLC explain.
What do you tell your little girls when you are putting on your “face”?
