When it comes to make-up I am no stranger. I’d say I exercise a reasonable restraint in resisting daily usage, but at the same time I enjoy the perfecting powers of foundation and blush on my tired mommy complexion. I never thought of my usage to be excessive or that it would have a negative influence on my daughters. But when my toddler started running up to me freshly done up with the make-up she took from her teenage Aunts room asking if she was “pwetty” I couldn’t help but wonder…. Was my weakness for a flawless finish contributing to low self esteem? Is the influence of her aunts and my love for make-up making her think that it’s what makes us pretty? The question I now faced….In order to nurture a confident body image must I do away with the luxuries of modern make-up and thrust myself into hippy-like simplicity?
I think not…

I think the enhancing your natural feature is no crime. I want confident daughters who know their beautiful naturally, but if they love the look of gloss or the way their eyes sparkle when accented with the right shade of shadow that’s okay too. The truth is that in my world of leaky diapers and a permanent spit-up stain on my shoulder it is nice to know that my face is still rosy-cheeked and shimmery. As a Mother of two little ones I think that finding the little things to offset the stress and lack of self pampering will do wonders for the soul, and in the grand scheme of things they need to know that a little pampering is something that everyone needs.
