Beauty Bloggers Expectations | A Lifestyle RantThursday, September 11, 2014
As a beauty blogger I think people have certain expectations of you and this gets me quite upset sometimes and I feel people expect me to look perfect every day. I'm sorry to disappoint but this is not the case sometimes I really just want to sit in my PJs no makeup on, spots on show and not give a monkeys.
Im not talking about you but people who are not sure what blogging is about they cannot understand how I can sit and write hours about lipsticks and blushes when I'm sat there bare faced. They don't understand beauty blogging is more than a pretty face of makeup and that the whole looking after your skin and the cleansing process is just as important.
Don't get me wrong I love makeup and wear it almost every day but I love my makeup free days too I love to go into work at least twice a week with just a freshly cleansed and moisturised face. I feel that this gives my skin the break it needs so I can then spend the weekend testing out new looks and wearing as much makeup as I want.
Comments like 'ooh you do look better with a bit of face on' or 'you do look a little pale today are you ill' really get to me too. I'm sorry if my naked face offends you but its the only one I have and I think it serves me well I cant complain.
I also find it the other way if you wear too much people also comment too like ' are you off on stage' or 'who are you trying to impress' Can we ever win!!
(what they expect) (what I actually look like)
(Don't worry this is not my makeup I've done it on pic monkey)
Sorry for this rant but just something that's been on my mind for sometime and need to write it down to get it out of my head.
Do you find it the same?
Do people expect you as a beauty blogger to look pristine everyday?
