    This was an amazing post o!!! Make up is about perception. But what pisses me off the most is when guys say they like a girl without make up, and they are so attracted to her when she is caked up SMH! But basically we need to understand that it is not compulsory to make up or not, it is a thing of the mind. If we accept this, the world will be a better place. This issue has been bugging me for a ehile sef.

    1. Thank you! This is what I am saying! Telling girls you like natural beauty but then doing love eyes in the comments of Instagram beauty models – smh

    Nice post. .
    Make up could be really nice, if done properly. .
    But we shouldn’t make it an Idol, something we depend on. . We should learn to appreciate what we naturally look like too…

    1. Thank you Jewel!
      I totally agree with you, it shouldn’t be something we hide behind and neglect our natural selves.

    This is brilliant! My stand on make-up is this: It’s all about confidence. Everyone has something they use to make themselves fully confident, whether it’s make-up or dressing up or whatever. Use make-up to give yourself that extra “oomph” if you want but don’t use it to HIDE yourself and don’t depend on make-up. This is the mistake I feel people make. This was a great read!! 😀

    1. Thank you Koye! You’re absolutely right, a lot of people choose to hide behind it and almost buy a new persona as they apply it each day – I’m glad you liked it!

    Wow! That was fun to read and i totally agree, to add, (cause I must say my own) I think we should go beyond the point of “accepting” who we are to loving who are, knowing we are beautiful and perfect cause God calls us perfect, would reflect in who we are, wether we wear makeup or not, I would have continued with what jewel said except Jewel already said it( I now remember why I always promise myself to comment early) anyhoo… Thanks again for this. #okbye

    1. Thank you Sharon! And yes you’re right! Loving one’s self rules out the possibility of using make up as a pretense.
      I’m glad you like it!

    Nice conversation u girls got going there 4 a while @ least if dre’s 1 thin I knw, Dr Liz lik I wud kal her is not an omo talika, meaning she ain’t so poor nt 2 afford a make up kit. Buh I’d lik 2 rid wit Liz on dis 1 simply cz m 1 f doze guys who wud Neva kiss his girl even on my wedding day with stuff lik Victoria secret pink lipstick or scarlet on her lips. Though I ain’t against d use of make up buh it becomes a problem if I can’t recognize you when you take it off. Cheers…

    1. Thank you Daniel! haha yes no Omo Talikas around here!
      And yes that is a very valid point you have there!

    Wow!! Nice one dear.. Hmmn, this makeup issue is a serious something.. Personally, I don’t like make up. I feel more confident with my natural beauty. My issue with make up is the fact that it seemingly hides our flaws and imperfections and makes us look perfect and spotless. It makes us not to appreciate ourselves for who we are, it kinda reduces our self worth in my opinion, our worth becomes hinged to our appearance and acceptance. I want to be the lady guys turn around twice to admire not because of her face beat or skimpy clothes but because she is naturally beautiful and modestly dressed..

    1. Thank you Shanyi! And you’re totally right it’s a serious issue but only so much can be covered in one blog post – a whole book could be written on it!

      And I feel the same way about being naturally beautiful and modestly dressed – modesty is the mantra !!

      Thank you !

  9. I really cannot express how much i love this post. I also have the same issue, am not a fan of layers of foundation but i try to do a bit here and there to enhance my beauty. We all have that liberty to feel comfortable in our own skin and if it takes a little sparkle here and a bit of matte there then so be it…. There shld b no criticism because we truly aren’t born with blue eyelids…. Thanks for sharing……
