What does Beauty Mean to You?

June 27, 2014

carrie_underwoodBeauty can be a term thrown around lightly, some people see beauty as wearing make up every day.  Others see beauty as being natural. Teen girls and young women can often be influenced by the media, by their peers and at the job they work at to look good, pretty and wear make up every day.  Other people feel that they need to wear a huge amount of make up just to fit in with society.

What people forget is that beauty comes from the inside and shines through to the outside.   Everyone should be comfortable with the choices they make and how they want to look, whether that is wearing make up or not.


Personally, I like to wear make up every day.  I believe looking and feeling beautiful is the way you choose to look and what makes your feel comfortable. Not everyone has a great amount of confidence in the way they look and they find make up to be a great way to feel better about their appearance.  I don’t have perfect skin, therefore I like to wear foundation because it makes me feel more confident.


The first photo shown above was my no make up selfie, to be honest I didn’t feel comfortable in this one but it stood for a good cause and that was beautiful.  The second photo is my every day look, a little make up which I feel comfortable in, I have 2 kids, a job, a blog and I don’t have as much time as I would like to make myself look like photo number 3.

Beauty to me is feeling comfortable in your own skin, wearing make up if you choose to do so and feeling beautiful from the inside out.  Each and everyone of us are beautiful in our own way and if you are comfortable with the way you look and feel then your beauty will shine throughout.

Carrie Underwood feels better when she has a little make up on, when she has her hair styled and she believes that beauty does not have to complicated!

    Make-up do not make beautiful.

    I agree. Beauty comes from within and the makeup applied to the exterior only helps to let the inner beauty shine a bit more. If you are not comfortable wearing a lot of makeup it will show, whereas if you only use the amount of makeup you are comfortable with you will feel happier and more confident.

    Great blog post! I think it’s important for women to feel beautiful with or without make up and it’s about how we feel the most comfortable.

    You’re beautiful in all 3 photos 🙂

    I most def feel better when I have a little make up on but what bothers me the most is when my eyebrows are crazy looking. I try to go religiously and get them done but sometimes mom stuff gets in the way. As mom’s we get very little “me time” or time to make ourselves feel good and special, so if make up is the way you help yourself a little or boost your confidence just a tad then I say GO FOR IT GIRLFRIEND! 😀

    Beauty comes from within. Anyone can have a pretty face, with or without makeup, but it takes a special person to be beautiful on the inside, especially in these days when it seems like kindness and goodness are so rare anymore. When you’re beautiful in that way, it radiates outward and everyone can see how gorgeous you are! Makeup only accentuates it.

    I learned that make-up doesn’t have to be complicated.

    I do feel that beauty is not always how we look on the outside. Inner beauty makes a person who they are. Outside beauty is wonderful to have, but to be a complete person you have to have a beautiful personality also.

    Beauty is how you look natural , use what you were born with (is what my mom told me) and i still believe firmly to this day ! If you want to wear makeup play up your features dont drown them in a false obvious look !

    To me, beauty means staying true to yourself and loving the things that make you, you!

    So your blog was beautifully wrote. Yeah for you for going outside your box and posting your blank face pic! I personally feel beauty is totatally from with in.

    I was told since I was a kid I was ugly until I met my second husband, he has not broken down my wall yet. He says I am most beautiful with no makeup hair in a pony , tank top and sweats. Mind you he never complains when I’m dressed and have all my makeup, which is what is my norm because I need it for me.

    But like I said beauty is from with in!!!!

      Thanks Cyndie! I was never one of the “pretty girls” in highschool. But most of the pretty ones weren’t very pretty on the inside, you sound beautiful and guys love it when girls dress down!

        Thank you Lynn my problem younger was I was heavy, I got up to 260 pounds. When my mom died in 2006 I spiraled in so many ways she was my best friend. I ended my abusive 10 year marriage and lost 130 pounds. Then my wall went higher bc people started liking me for my looks my amaZing husband heard everything that was crazy about me the first night trying to push him away. He stayed for some reason and works every day to undo what damage the rest of the men in my life have done !!!

    I feel better when I have makeup (at least mascara) on and my hair done… but I’m such a makeup junkie. Love it! I agree with Carrie Underwood, in that makeup shouldn’t be complicated.

    Totally agree. I feel more confident when I have makeup on, it makes me more relaxed when I am out and about running errands and such!

    It’s not easy to post a makeup-less selfie! Good for you, you’re stunning 🙂

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I personally think someone is beautiful for what is on the inside!
