How to Feel Confident Without Wearing Makeup!

Hey cupcakes! I know I don't post enough beauty posts here on The Chic Cupcake, but it is frankly due to the fact that I am not that interested in new makeup/beauty trends. Even before starting my journey to lower waste living, I was never really interested in spending a bunch of money to try the next "big thing"... Now, I wear a total of four makeup products every day: zero waste mascara (which can be found in my latest Morning Routine post!), concealer, powder, and lip balm. Some days I even opt for wearing no makeup at all, so I wanted to share a post today to try and inspire you all to feel confident in your own skins :)


1. Gradually move to less/no makeup - Confidence does take time, but if you are interested in switching to less makeup I suggest taking it slowly <3

2. Smile - Smiling shows that you are confident in yourself, which is always good (even if you do choose to wear makeup)! I try to smile wherever I go because it spreads positivity :D


3. Accept your flaws - I know a lot of people wear makeup to cover up flaws (I know I do as my skin is very sensitive and tends to break out)... But flaws are just flaws - they don't really matter in the grand scheme of things! Every single person has these "imperfections", so I suggest learning to accept the things that you see as "flaws" because they make you YOU.

4. Look at other people's features and notice the beauty in them too - As you journey to being more comfortable without makeup, I suggest looking to others to find the beauty in them too. See how gorgeous your lab partner's eyes are? Look at that girl's cheekbones! The sooner you recognize beauty in others, the sooner you will be able to recognize it in yourself. <3

5. Make other people feel confident with compliments - When you recognize someone's beauty, let them know! Spreading compliments and confidence to others will only strengthen you own confidence too.

6. Tell yourself you are beautiful each morning in the mirror - And mean it! This form of positive thinking will start your day on a great note, and it will make you feel extra gorgeous (because you are!)

7. Take note of the things people say about you and embrace the compliments - Other people tend to notice the things we never notice about ourselves. :)


8. Don't fall for the ads - You are gorgeous without that $100 Kylie lip color (or whatever the product may be)! If you don't want to wear makeup, don't wear it! You don't need those chemicals to be beautiful, and you should rock your natural beauty.

9. Only care about what you think; don't mind the haters - If someone judges you about not wearing makeup, then they are just a judgmental person... Why should they have any say in what you look like? Or what you should put on your face? Just worry about how you view yourself - that is the only thing that matters!

10. Embrace your own standards of beauty - If this means no makeup that's great, but it can also mean makeup too! :) Rock your confidence no matter what!

Love,
Jenna

P.S. YOU ARE GORGEOUS! <3

  2. I love my skin more without makeup. But then pay a lot of attention to my skin, so it looks good without make up. BUT also love make up, as it is art and a way of people expressing themselves.

    1. I agree, makeup is such a great way to express yourself (and I myself love to get "dressed" up every once in awhile)! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Another thing I'd add is that if you start taking care of your skin, & you implement a consistent regime, chances are you're going to feel a lot better about it naturally!!

    1. Great tip! I totally agree with that - my skin is sensitive, so having a constant makeup/skincare routine is essential.

  6. During the summer I like to wear BB cream instead of foundation and It feels great. It will give my skin a little color while staying fresh. However, during the Winter I will wear foundation but very lightly. I do not have any embarrassing flaws but I do like to try to look younger. Lol.
