It's Time to Change the Narrative about Makeup...Are you Ready?



For many years dating back to when I was a lil youngin I always heard people imply negative connotations about makeup. Sometimes I would hear people whisper “she must be ugly, wearing all that damn makeup.” When someone would pass them and God forbid you dare venture and be bold with a red lip, then you were referred to as a “whore”. It’s sickening when you think about the narrative that’s been shoved in our hearts and minds about makeup from a young age. I remember when I was in the 7th grade I begged my mom to allow me to wear lipstick. After all the tears and “I never get to do anything” comments she caved in and said “YES!” The only color I chose to wear was red because from a very young age I guess subconsciously I was a rebel and didn’t give AF what anyone had to say. Guess what? Bih I’m wearing red lip stick who cares what they’re serving for lunch. My lipstick is Pop…Pop…Pop…Poppin! Is what I used to say.
