As women or men, wearing makeup gives us a new found POWER. We can take control of our appearance often by highlighting aspects of ourself that we love. Rather than attribute makeup as a tool to cover up imperfections, we should credit this ability to boost self-confidence. Makeup effects our self esteem in a number of ways but undeniably has the power to help it reach new heights.
A study by Harvard Medical School used science to back up these claims, enlisting a number of female students to undergo a study. They all had similar interests, levels of self esteem and common makeup habits. Results showed the women who used makeup recorded a much higher self esteem than those who weren’t given makeup.
Researchers also suggested that boosting self-esteem can also have a knock on effect on memory, confidence and our mental ability. That’s right ladies, it’s making us look good AND feel amazing!
Here are some of the ways in which makeup effects our self esteem…
Makeup To Highlight Our Natural Beauty
Rather than using it to define our beauty, makeup can instead enhance the aspects of ourselves that we love.
Makeup as a Confidence Booster
Makeup can boost our self esteem by providing us with a greater amount of confidence. Armed with a new strength to succeed, we are more likely to do well in our tasks! This then circles back and boosts our self esteem further. When you believe in yourself, other people will believe in you too!
Taking Control Over Your Own Appearance
Makeup has no real ground-rules! How you look can be entirely up to you. If you’re struggling with self-esteem issues, or are lacking in a sense of identity, makeup can be a great outlet to find the real you.
Learn to Love Who You Are
If you’re going through a period of struggle or overwhelm, makeup can lift you up and help you love the skin that you’re in.
If you’re ready to send your self-esteem soaring to new heights, it could be time to master your own makeup.
