When I read this quote, I felt sad. I immediately agreed with the statement, but I hated to admit the reality that came with its truth: we are faking and covering our true beauty (our passion) with cosmetics.
Of course, I have to preface this as I always do: I have nothing against cosmetics themselves (I love blush!!); however, the issue is with the heart and intention behind how we use them.
What are your passions? What do you love? What makes you feel so alive that you radiate with love, joy, confidence and energy? That, my friend, is where your beauty comes from—from that special something inside that God created you to do excellently.
Maybe it's a craft, or an art, or writing, or finance, or singing. Whatever it is, no amount of applied cosmetics will make you as beautiful as when you are living your life fully alive—doing what you were created to do best.
What are you most passionate about? What makes you feel truly alive, and more beautiful than any amount of cosmetics can make you feel?
