Both men and women love to look good. A man’s way of looking dapper is to buff up, whereas women like to play with colors and enhance their appearance. Makeup should not be seen as something that helps you hide your flaws (though it does) but as something that helps in improving your features. It should blend in with your natural looks instead of making you look like an entirely different person.
You can use cosmetics to feel confident and inviting. But there are several other benefits of using makeup which is explained below –
1. You feel good, positive, and confident
We are not being vain or superficial here. But admit it, don’t you feel happy and positive after a makeover? When you are well-dressed and have done your hair and makeup, it gives you the confidence to take on the world. Cosmetics have colors and fragrances that make us feel great; hence, we get tempted to glam up whenever we have a special meeting or an event to attend to.
2. Protects the skin
Moisturizer, primer, and foundation form a protective layer and prevent the dust and dirt from getting into your pores and clogging them. This barrier created on the surface protects the surface from getting exposed to the sun’s rays and dust. We agree that there will not be total protection; however, the harm will be limited.
3. Therapeutic and creative activity
From the time when we were kids, we all had an inclination towards playing with colors. It felts refreshing and exciting to draw, paint and have fun with crayons. This activity is also not so different except that we are using cosmetics to paint our faces! Whenever you feel stressed out, go to your dressing room, use those products, and see how you feel.
4. It makes you look stunning in photos and on video calls
Photos preserve moments. And so we make an extra effort to look fabulous in pics. But the thing with photos is that our natural features sometimes don’t appear noticeable. This is where you can use some eyeliner, lip gloss, or highlighter to make your features appear prominent and make your face look vibrant. Similarly, given that we now spend most of the time in the virtual HD world, we need the help of cosmetics to make us look smart and lively for video interactions.
5. It is an Excellent me-time ritual
The time you spend applying makeup is the time where you can be all by yourself. Taking care of our needs should be a priority. And every day skincare is a great way to attend to yourself. We all need time to focus on ourselves before attending to the needs of the world.
