This is my first blog post and I cannot think of a better way than to talk about something I am highly passionate about. So lets start of with a little background information about me. Who is Sanesh Makeup?
My name is Saneshnie a.k.a Sanesh (so much easier to say). I am 21 years old and for the past 10 to 11 years, I have been suffering with breakouts. As I got older, the breakouts progressed to acne and by the time I was 16, I was diagnosed with severe acne. You know, the kind that is like painful cysts and also appears on your back and chest? That kind. My confidence levels took a huge knock and I honestly felt ugly... Luckily, my scarring is not as bad as it could have been. I still have acne and I am currently on roaccutane to treat it.
So how does makeup tie into my situation with acne? Well, I really wanted to go into a profession that was my passion which - through caring for my acne - became the health and skincare industry. But I also had creative juices flowing through my veins. Through years of watching my mom and my sitter apply their makeup, makeup quickly became my favourite thing to do in my spare time by the time I was 17 . Playing around with colours was therapeutic for me and still is. But wearing makeup also gave me something else... CONFIDENCE...
SO! Back to the title of this blog post, why are people shaming those of us who wear makeup. I honestly just don't get it. I keep asking myself why is makeup being made a negative thing. Makeup gives people confidence to express themselves. Obviously if you have never had a skin problem in your life, I don't expect you to understand the struggle. Unless, of course you're hating because you don't have the skills to slay any makeup look and are not willing to learn either. No judgement here.
The hate is beyond my understanding. I know first hand that makeup makes people look and feel good and gives you a boost in confidence levels. If you're born with flawless skin and amazing features, that's amazing. But lets not throw shade, okay.
Okay, now I'm not throwing shade but all I want to say is that, before you judge someone or shame someone for wearing makeup, try and think of what they must be going through. It only takes one insult to throw a person into a pit of depression. I get it, maybe insulting people makes you feel better about yourself. But at what cost? ... And you know what they say, what goes around comes around.
That's my thoughts for today.
I assure you my next posts will be lighter, much more colourful and fun...
