Recently I posted a Beauty challenge on Youtube to all the beauty bloggers who wear glasses and love makeup. As someone who started to wear glasses quite young, I have noticed that a lot of your girls who wear glasses to correct their vision are very self-conscious about their looks.
This reminded me of how I felt growing up, how the glasses that made me see, seemed like such a burden because I felt they prevented me from doing things that other girls could do quite easily. I was also subjected to a lot of teasing until I learned not to care anymore about the opinions of others.
Growing up wearing glasses
Well as I have grown older I have learned to appreciate these glasses and the medical advancement that has allowed them to be enhanced so much to give me better vision. To explore the world around me and to experience the smiles of my children, to read a book, to look at a beautiful sunset.
So, why a #beautieswithglasses challenge
I thought of doing this challenge, for all those girls who like me felt like they couldn’t do anything fun while wearing glasses, for instance, putting on make-up like their friends, I thought those of us who have learned the lessons, can share some tips with them on how to just do 1 little thing that might nudge their self-esteem in the right direction, which is to apply and wear makeup properly with glasses.
I am a big believer in changing the narrative from negative to positive, can have a great effect on how children see themselves. I also believe that starting with an easy issue, can create confidence. This is no way means they have to wear make-up in order to feel confidence, but it means if THEY WANT TO THEY CAN. So with this challenge, I would like for those of us who are grown ladies, who have learned that you can do AT LEAST this one simple, wearing makeup that’s flattering, even when you were eyeglasses, to the lesson, can share some tips with them on how to just do 1 thing, apply and wear makeup properly with glasses.
So with this challenge, I would like for those of us who are grown ladies, who have learned that you can do AT LEAST this one simple thing, wearing makeup that’s flattering, even when you wear eyeglasses all the time, can share some tips and tricks and demonstrate the techniques we use.
One step at time, just dealing with one thing that can make a young woman perhaps feel less than, when she is with her peers.
