Make a #Mark

3:52 AMHannah Dacanay

Ever since I was child, I'm used to seeing my mom put on make up every day. I get curious a lot and ask what each of the product she uses are for. At the end of those discussions and when I wanted to try those products, she always tells me "Bata ka pa (you are still young), embrace your natural skin and face". I took that advice into heart. In fact, she always tells me the same thing until today. But you know what they say, "young girls grow up too".  I am not a young child anymore (still youthful at heart tho hehe).

Now thinking about the advice, it made me interpret it in two ways:

1. My mom just wants me to preserve and embrace my naturality. Besides, it's also a way to protect my skin from harmful chemicals.

2. Is it that bad to wear makeup?

I used to think makeup is used to cover up imperfections or to just impress men. But as I was maturing, my perspective of things change. My perspective with makeup changed too.

I started seeing makeup as an art form, one that can be a creative outlet to express one's mood and emotions. Ever since I learned how to draw (2 years old), I love art. Let me stress, "I live and breathe art". So having that artsy side helped break my negative outlook towards makeup. Just like painting or drawing a portrait, I learned that makeup is not that different. The process of applying makeup is not that different either. With painting/drawing you use a canvas or paper but with makeup your canvas is your face. 

It took me years to learn how to use makeup properly, it's a constant learning process. I must admit I am nowhere near a professional makeup artist but one thing is clear for me: I love my makeup. I love my art. I embrace it as much as I embrace myself. This is the #Mark that I wanted to impart.
