The following is a very common dilemma that a lot of women face to an alarming extent. Have you ever stood in front of your bathroom mirror and applied your make up to perfection? Your contouring looks accurate and the way you’ve blended it all in seems absolutely flawless but after you head out and catch a glimpse of yourself in any other mirror, you realise that your face look like it’s caked with make-up and that your blending was anything but flawless.
This happens because of a shamefully obvious reason; we pay too much attention to doing our make-up in one lighting set up and it then doesn’t look that good in different lighting. The kind of lights we have on our dressing tables and bathrooms can only be so accurate which is why it’s a good idea to not do all your make up in them.
The best way to make sure that your make-up looks good everywhere you go is to keep checking and adjusting it to be sure and you can do that with the help of your trusty make up mirror. The idea behind these mirrors is to be able to critically look at the contours of your face no matter where you are. After you’ve done your make up from home, you can pull out your make up mirror to have a closer look at your face and quickly touch up anything that seems incomplete or even overdone.
You can find make up mirrors in all sizes, lighting options and magnification. There are some models that you can carry on your person and others that you can have on your dressing table and be able to just do your make up more accurately from home; Assurance Beauty has reviews on them all.
These past few years have been a lot of better in terms of discussions around the topic of body inclusivity and positivity. In fact, a number of brands stopped retouching their photos and started working with models of every age, color and body type in order to rebel against the idea of the ideal body type and so on. While yes, there is a lot of good happening, it still is not enough and it can take even more years, and even decades to completely remove the shame and stigma surrounding different body types that don’t meet the ideal.
Now keep in mind that being accepting of your body doesn’t mean that you don’t take care of it to the point at which it is putting your health at risk, and at the same time, it doesn’t make you any less of an advocate of the movement if you would like to lose weight. The entire purpose of this movement is to be more accepting of different body types and not ridicule or tear each other down simply because our ideas or bodies may be different. So, if you believe in body positivity and are working on getting a good jawline, it doesn’t mean that you are foregoing the movement and everything it stands for.
At the end of the day, we want to feel more comfortable and happy in our skin and only changing things about ourselves and our bodies for the sake of ourselves and not others. So, the day we truly accept ourselves, our bodies, our flaws and everything else, you will find yourself feeling more content with the way that you are. So, regardless of the weight, the height, discoloration, cellulite, jiggly parts and all, you are still just as valid as every other individual on this planet.
