Role of Make-up In Unedited Beauty
Take off the mask.
For many this might feel like walking our of your house naked! Make-up plays such a big role in women lives today as it has essentially become an accessory, co-ordinated with an outfit. Many corporate companies expect women to wear make-up and are contractually bound to do so in some positions as apart of their 'uniform' and dress code. We are being actively told that we aren't beautiful enough without it.
How many shades of lipstick do you have that you can count off the top of your head? I even bet you know their names too, I do; "Girl About Town", "Rebel, "Moronge"...these are just some of the ones in my beauty cabinet. I have a section for eye shadows, lipsticks, eye liners, gloss. Oh My!
Subtle as she goes.
We believe that everyday make-up should be worn to accent natural features, not to create new ones. A subtle amount of make-up to bring out more of the existing natural beauty. A little bit of balm to make your lips so kissable, a touch of illuminator on your cheek bones to give your skin a fresh summer glow, maybe a little mascara if your eye lashes disappear like mine over night miraculously! Nothing ever worn in excess.
The final word...Par it back.
Make-up is like putting on a mask, covering up our media driven insecurities. The Unedited Beauty Crusade is about pairing it back, rediscovering our natural beauty and what makes us genuinely unique and being proud of that. Instead of hiding ourselves behind foundations, bronzer, and eye shadow we celebrate the minimalist approach; raw natural and bare with hints of cheek colour, balmy lips and light mascara.
