Considering I have spent a large proportion of my adolescent life dedicated to beauty, I think it’s about time to address this question. Why does beauty matter? I think when I ask this question, I’m not asking why makeup is important, but why beauty is, every bit of it.
It goes without saying that outer beauty doesn’t exist without inner. No matter how pretty you are, an ugly heart makes an ugly person. We all know this right? Okay good. So why should we dedicate so much time to beauty? For me personally, it all comes down to confidence and calmness. Without beauty, my entire life feels chaotic. Now don’t get me wrong, I have no problem not wearing makeup every now and then. However, without regular beauty checks, everything goes down hill. Without my hair, nails and skin care all in place, my confidence plunges and my life of tranquillity becomes a life of disarray.
Everyone’s beauty habits are different but it’s what we do to make ourselves feel better that’s important. Put it this way, after a few days in bed with an illness, what do you do to make yourself feel better? Without even realising it, we all have our little habits that make us feel 100 times better about ourselves. If I’m honest, that’s why beauty matters. It allows us to be the very best versions of ourselves whilst still reflecting who we truly are. With or without makeup, beauty has the ability to boost character and confidence. Regardless of whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, beauty can do some amazing things. If you have carried out a beauty routine that makes you feel better about yourself, even if it’s just washing your hair, you walk around air of confidence and you may not even realise.
