The Power of Makeup

Published On June 25, 2015 | By Amberli | Afternoons

There’s a new social media trend called The Power of Makeup.  Women are posting selfies with makeup on just HALF their faces, and nothing on the other half.

I assumed it was to show how makeup isn’t necessary, and you’re beautiful without it..  But it’s actually the OPPOSITE.

The whole intention is to show that it’s COOL to wear makeup if you want to, even if it’s more trendy these days to say you’re anti-makeup.
So I watched this video this morning with a very talented makeup artist.. and she is talking about how much she LOVES makeup.. and she does the power of makeup challenge. I’m not sure if this is where it started or what. And I’m not sure how I feel about this. She is happy.. and I think that’s really what matters. But I don’t want women to think that they NEED makeup to be beautiful either. But the power of makeup is pretty ridiculous. Seeing it on just half of someone’s face is pretty crazy.

Check out the video and let me know what you think about this new social media trend.
