Now, I don't want to say that everyone "needs" make-up or that make-up ought to be considered a requirement at all times, but it sure can make a difference.
This morning I came in make-up-free, planning to record a short video for Facebook of my daily application regime, using the Pure Anada products that we carry here at 30 Church Women's Clothing. Now, I tend to be a bit self-conscious (yes, in spite of my at-times ridiculous demeanor, it's true!) and so I was pretty eager to get some make-up on before customers came in.
And I was surprised at just how nervous I was showing others how I do my make-up! It's not until you expose your process that you realize just how personal it is, I guess.
But when I was finished, I felt more put-together. I felt ready for my day and less vulnerable, believe it or not. There's power in that. Why, and how does it work? I'm not too sure, I just know that it does.
Feeling beautiful helps you feel more powerful. It does for me, anyway.
