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

*** GAH!!! SO MANY FAVORITES MY HEAD'S GUNNA ESSPLODE! X3***

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

Don't feel like you have to do that! society's standards are wrong about what is beauty. Beauty is not all about the skin, its about who you are too. And if they only like you for your looks then they aren't worth it. :)

You ARE beautiful, and there's no such thing as perfect skin X3 trust me i know mines not perfect either, i have to take pretty good care of it in order to maintain it well enough. Don't worry though it'll get easier to manage over time :)

But well, I never use make-up anyway...
The only good reason I could think of to wear make-up is for guys (if you know what I mean) but I'm pretty sure they don't like it anyway >.<

don't wear it for them if you wear any at all ^^; wear it for you and as a self esteem/confidence boost for when you need it! try starting off with just a little bit of mascara (no eyeliner just yet) and some light pink lipgloss :) it'll highlight your features and not be too over-powering :)

Eyeshadow Brings out the color of my eyes, and draws attention to one of the things i love about me.

I use a bit of lipgloss to keep my lips from drying out and tearing when i smile. and to give them a pretty shine

I use a daily concealer/moisturizer that has spf15. This covers the occational blemish that would have made me selfconsious and Protects my skin from harmful uv rays. And it keeps my face healthy and smooth. (its also prevents wrinkels so thats awsome)

Makeup (if used right) dosent hide natural beauty, it brings it out.

I agree whole heartedly.

If you read my artists comments it said that i dont think that make up is "the devil." I'm not even trying to say that it is; i just wrote this for ladies who feel that they aren't beautiful UNLESS they wear a ton of make up. And i'm glad that you feel beautiful, being confident is always a good thing.

I do get what your saying though. I am comfortable in my own skin. But im am much better looking with makeup. and seeing the other comments, makeup shouldnt make you look fake. that means your doing it wrong. Your supposed to accent you freatures, not cover them.

I don't wear make up...ever, really. Quite honestly the only times I've worn it was at a Christmas party, and at a school play. As my favorite band, Maroon 5, says, "Look so much better without makeup. Why would you hide your face?"

I agree with *Meduteja . I don't wear make up because I don't want to be fake. Though of course make up isn't bad. But caking on is. A little blush and eye shadow is fine, but that's just for a color on the eyes and a shine on the cheeks. No one needs make up. That's why I don't wear it. God created us all with amazing beauty and we should be proud of it, not what we look like covered up.

i agree! the only stuff i need is a light brush of eyeliner, a little mascara on my upper lashes and some lipgloss and i'm set ^^ anything more than that (that isnt theater makeup) just makes me feel fake.

Mhmm...Yeah theatre makeup makes total sense(possibly cuz I'm in theatre). The lights wash your face out and you look like a ghost with no face. lol But yeah.
