Is makeup sometimes a coverup?


It’s always a beautiful thing to see when you spot someone who is wearing perfectly applied makeup. Would you agree? You know the type, the eye shadow is done with expert precision, the face makeup is seemingly flawless. Awesome right? Well, then there’s the flip side. The person that is wearing heavy layers of “cover up”, so much that if you were to see them without it, you might not even recognize them. Why do some people where such heavy paint on their faces? You may know someone who does this, or you may be a person who likes to spread the layers of foundations,powders,etc. on as thick as can be.

Please understand, I’m not against makeup. When it’s done right, it can be a beautiful vision to behold. I don’t wear it because my skin is very sensitive and I try not to do anything to stir up more problems. I apply a little lipstick/gloss and I’m out the door. Also, applying a full face of makeup takes time and energy. It’s just one more thing to have to make time for and squeeze into an already jam-packed day.

Do you ever think that some people who put on all these layers of cake  are maybe trying to hide the face that they are really unhappy with? Does each layer represent a new and deeper level of dissatisfaction with the face that they were born with? Kind of scary when you think  about how thick some of these layers appear to be, mannequin-like in some cases. I say that because some people would not be caught dead or alive without their makeup “mask”. For instance, someone drops by your house unexpectedly. You did not get the opportunity to put your face on, so you are frantic and at your wits end! No one can see you like this! What do you do? Do you scream to the person through your closed front door, that they need to come back later? Or do you take your chances and open the door bracing for whatever reaction you might get?
