When I was a little kid, I was always fascinated by makeup. The colors and playfulness of it just drew me in. Putting on makeup made me feel like I could express my creative side without any judgment, and it was a way for me to show a part of my personality that was hidden inside. It wasn't a mask, but a way to paint my emotions on a canvas to show how I felt inside.
Every time I applied makeup, it felt like a ritual of self-care. From the gentle strokes of a brush to the soft touch of a sponge or the caress of my fingers on my face, every thoughtful application was a way for me to feel happy and glowing.
