Men can never understand the appeal makeup holds for many women.
To a typical guy, what’s the point of spending thousands of Naira and time putting on makeup? After all, you’d still clean it off at the end of the day.
My dear ladies, I’m here to correct this erroneous notion that our darling Naija guys have about makeup. Fellas, here’s why we women love to wear makeup:
1. Highlight best features
Makeup is one tool women everywhere use to show off their best features. If you have soulful eyes, what better way to show them off than with eyeshadow?
2. To look beautiful
You can’t deny that makeup adds to the overall beauty of a woman. Especially when it’s done right. You can go from regular girl to supermodel model with just a few makeup products.
3. Boost Confidence
You know how football players go through different rituals to boost their morale and confidence before a big game. That’s exactly what makeup does for many women. If you have a big meeting or day, applying your makeup gives you the time to calm your nerves, get your game face on and go slay!
4. Cover imperfections/skin blemishes
Many women have skin issues like scars from pimples and scars from old wounds on their faces. Some women have been disfigured by accidents or fire, makeup items like concealer, primer, foundation etc. help them cover up these scars and blemishes. Thus they can look like everyone else.
5. For the love of it
This is one thing guys never consider about makeup. Many women just love makeup, applying it and looking good. For example, I can never leave the house without wearing my purple or red lipstick. I love it that much. Some of us actually wear makeup for the sheer love of it!
