Not Wearing Makeup is Sexy
There is a lot of things about today’s society and media images that I have grown to resent. I resent the message that it is okay for women to do crazy things to their bodies like booty injections, corset sculpting, huge breast implants, and lip injections. I resent the idea that it is okay for women to refer to themselves as bitches in an effort to empower themselves by turning a word that is derogatory and demeaning for the sake of empowerment and upliftment. Finally, I resent the “mascara effect” of suggesting that in order to be seen or validated that you have to be “on” by wearing stiletto heels, wear makeup, and always having your hair done. I’m talking about dressing up just to go to the corner AM/PM corner store for some Now and Later’s and Chiko-Sticks. Don’t even get me started on women who takes selfies every damn day with something really revealing on, half or fully naked.
I mean…DAMN IT OKAY! WE KNOW YOUR CUTE AND HAVE BOOBS! DO WE NEED TO SEE YOUR NAKED ASS BODY, BIG ASS CHEEKS, OR FACE ALL THE TIME? NO!
Okay, I had to get that out. But like really, it gets on my damn nerves. Show me something of substance or somewhat intriguing aside from your ass! This is the part of social media I absolutely can’t stand. Social media has provided the world a bigger Red Solo cup so they can get more drunk off of vanity. We are just playing beer pong of attention-seeking. Now this is all my opinion and you most certainly don’t have to believe me, but it is how I see it.
Now, I am not saying that there is anything wrong with having self-esteem, looking cute, and taking a cute selfie of yourself every now and then. Hell there are times I wear my stilettos, buy me a cute lace front wig because I want to try a different look, and take a cute selfie but it isn’t everyday and it isn’t to grab attention toward myself or the private things about myself like my ass, boobs, or sex appeal. I keep all that stuff for my hubby, not the rest of the world. There are a few exceptions that I do support and that is mostly for women who may be posting results of working out and getting healthier. I love those pics because they give me hope. But damn it, don’t post a pic of yourself everyday because I will not be following you. I mean come on, its annoying. Now I know that I may sound like a hater in some aspect and that is not the case. I love women. I love the sexiness of women. I love the confidence of women. I am not afraid to admit if I see an attractive woman that I may check out her entire body for inspiration. Yes. I am very comfortable in my sexuality to say that I have glanced at a woman’s ass before and if you say that you have never looked at another woman’s ass your lying. We all have done it and it is okay to admit it.
I simply want to send a message to women that as sexy as it seems to put a bunch of gunk on your face and wear shoes that you can barely walk in, it is just as sexy to just be yourself and embrace your natural beauty. That means your natural hair and your natural face without the manipulation of makeup. Every dimple, stretch mark, birthmark, blemish, and black head is where it should be. Now we all have our insecurities (I know I do) and that is what makes us use those artificial supplements to cover up what we have difficulty facing every day. There is nothing wrong with doing things to make you feel good, but when you start to allow the makeup and the things that you wear to be all there is to your identity, that is when it is an issue. I feel if you can’t be comfortable in your own skin and can’t stay off of social media for more than 1-2 days then you have to question who you think you are.
That’s the thing about social media! People only show you pieces of their life and not show the entire picture. If you are going to post pictures about yourself, let me see you when you wake up and when your made up. Show me all of you. When I say when you make up I don’t mean put on some concealer first and then show me your pretty self. I’m talking I want to smell your morning breath through your pictures. Be real! To me, not wearing makeup is being real and it shows courage that you are not afraid to step out to the world and say “This is me. Take it or leave it”. When you see women who are drop dead gorgeous and they are all done up, don’t go judging yourself thinking you are not pretty enough or gorgeous enough because you don’t look like them. Don’t internalize what someone else is projecting on the outside because you don’t know their struggles or life story. The purpose of this blog is to let women know that you are beautiful without you make up and I think we should make this day #nomakeupday! If you are down with it, take a picture of yourself without makeup and tag me in it on Instagram @brownsugarfoodblogger and put the hashtag #nomakeupday! Let’s begin to take real selfies and not beautiful fake ones!
