I don’t mean nude (though hey, do that, too. Being comfortable naked makes your body confidence go up! Trust me on this ;)) but sans makeup.
Dare to bare. Stand in front of the mirror and LOOK at yourself. Sure, you may have a blemish on your jaw. Your cheeks may be a little flushed. Your lips might be paler than what you think makes you look beautiful, but look past that. Look at YOU. You are beautiful.
I used to hate my eyes. I looked at celebs I think are gorgeous and they have these huge eyes with deepset lids and so, I use makeup to trick and contour my eyes so they look different. But now, I look at my round, small, semi hooded eyes and think, ‘Man, my eyelashes are gorgeous. They overbalance my tiny eyes and give me an innocent look. *bats lashes*’ And because I love my eyelashes so much, now I love my eyes, too.
My point with this side story is that: you’re beautiful. Everyone is. But sometimes we get so hung up on these tiny imperfections, we hyperfocus on them and lose sight of the big picture.
Learn to love yourself, imperfections and all. Stand in front of that mirror, bare faced, and see that beauty. I dare you. Because its there, ladies. You’re just not seeing.
