Ladies, take a look at your make up bag.

How much eyeshadow powder have you gone through?

How many tubes of empty lipstick have you thrown away?

How much concealer do you use daily?

If you answer to any of these at all,

Then what you use is too much.

Because you don't need eyeshadow
To let your beautiful eyes shine.

You don't need lipstick to create the perfect colored pucker,
Your smile alone gets them every time.

You don't need to hide your freckles behind a mask of concealer,
In order to look more smooth, and beautiful.

Beauty is in you in every single way.
From your beautiful smile
To your cute laugh,
Down to every last sun-kissed freckle.

You don't need make up to cover up

The wonderful person you are.

You are perfect enough already.
A sort of pick-me-up for all the ladies out there ^^ (*i use ladies because that is what every female who reads this deserves to be called :)*)

It can be hard being a female with the media always telling you what is and is not beautiful. What they forget is that everyone is beautiful and beauty should be celebrated for all that it is! Everyone should celebrate their different shapes and sizes and should rejoice for everything that makes them unique!

Read this whenever you have a down day,

And remember: You are beautiful, in every single way :)

***Just so you guys know, i'm not trying to say make up is the devil XD, several people have expressed that they wear make up for theater and other such things. Thats completely fine! Make up is a wonderful way to enhance natural beauty. And i say Enhance not Cake on. This message is for all girls to appreciate their natrual beauty and for Girls who feel that they aren't beautiful UNLESS they wear lots of make up. :) I wear make up too, but i'm finally starting to get comfortable enough in my own skin to think that i look okay with out it. sure special occasions are epic times to wear make up, hell who doesn't want a confidence boost? so I'm not saying that make up is bad in any way shape or form ^^; only that you are beautiful with out it! ***

for other beauty pick me ups:
To Every Girl (my top devation on DA):

You are beautiful: A Haiku:

True beauties prayer:

**edit: fixed minor spelling error**

Added bonus: here is the Dove campign for real beauty website link:


you guys might be aware of the commercial they did showing a model getting prepped for a photo shoot and how different she looks in the before and after photos

here's the youtube of what i'm talking about:

and here's another one by Dove as well about how much beauty advertising we see daily:

here is a final video done by them about a girl named Amy:

Enjoy guys! :3


I'm so sorry if i dont get a chance to thank you for faveing the devation, its just lots of people have been faving it and i can't reply to every one :iconcryforeverplz: but the fact that you faved it makes me say THANKS SO MUCH!

so for everyone that i can't thank in person i say: THANKS YOU GUYS! :D

I read this while listening to a cute song, and it got me to tear up...;-; It's so beautiful and true. I use make up just so I can hide myself from everyone...and it's sad that I do, I know...but still...

Its really nice that you think a girls true beauty is her natural self. Its too bad that girls like me are addicted to our lash blast masquara and our water proof eyeliner and our long lasting lip gloss. Sometimes a girl needs the needs of make up.

But you are so right if only all guys though like you!

indeed! you are beautiful without all that makeup on! try skimping out on it a little next time! like toning down how much concealer you use or how much eyeshadow you put on, or maybe even go for a more natural look rather than super coture

Thank you!!! I look at all these depressed chicks (sorry, I mean ladies) out there and I'm like WTF?!?! They're so pretty and strong and wonderful, why would they not be happy with who they are? (And I'm a dude)

I know you are a dude man X3

the media likes to berate us into thinking we aren't good enough unless we have a body like a super skinny and tall blonde model. :/
