My makeup story (But it isn't made up)

I am relatively new to the whole idea of beauty blogging. Of course I do have another blog but that was purely for all my literary works. And it took me a long time to even get started with that blog. I like writing. I've been writing verses (I don't like to call it poetry. I don't think it's worthy of being called poetry) since I was in the 8th. The only problem, I'm very erratic. I need to be inspired to write. I wrote quite a bit during college but most of my writing is only for me. I tend to not go public with it because well it's too damn emo (emotional) and also the people who are closest to me would immediately understand what situation or whom I am talking about. Can't deal with that happening :P I've also kept a diary since I was in the 8th and I was fairly regular in writing till the past 2 years or so. Basically since I started working,  my life has been about everything and everybody but me. What does this have to do with this blog or makeup?

Well I am a dancer. I was introduced to makeup at a very young age and I acknowledge the importance of makeup for stage performances.But makeup for everyday was a concept that I refused to acknowledge. I saw it an accessory. Something that I wore for parties or functions, only to add to the outfit. Like any other typical orthodox Indian I sincerely believed that makeup was not for everyday.

So when did this perception change?
When I started going for interviews, I wanted to look more mature and elegant, that was when I started wearing makeup.
But I seriously fell in love with makeup only after I started working. I'm not sure what changed.Maybe it was me, maybe it was the fact that I had a nice pretty makeup kit. I don't know. But I know that I started to slowly fall in love with buying and using makeup on a regular basis.

Today I am writing in a beauty blog, something I never thought I would do. More than that, I am actually ready to go public with and let the world know that I love makeup. My friends and family gasp at this transformation.  Many of them didn't know this side of me. Hey, I didn't know this side of me, until I let it free. Makeup has most definitely boosted my confidence.

I'm not saying you have to use makeup to be confident, but you do have to follow your heart to do what you love. This, and only this will make you confident. Something that the women of today need in a male dominated world.

You know who you are, don't be scared to show it. I'm not.
