A/N: You can find this story as a whole book on Wattpad, my username is the same as here. Enjoy reading!
I. Cream Every skin needs cream, to make it soft and smooth.
Being soft means allowing yourself to be vulnerable. To open up and to be capable of trusting. Humans are born as credulous creatures.
II. Eyebrows At first, do your eyebrows in a slightly darker shade than your natural colour. Draw the closest-you-can-get-to-perfect arch.
Being too soft isn't good, sometimes, you need to be tough. You have no choice if you don't want to get hurt repeatedly. For that, you have to be confident and stand up for yourself, even be stricter than usually when the situation requires it.
III. Foundation Every face needs a foundation. Choose the colour that suits you best.
In order to be the best version of yourself, you need to create a plan first. A foundation that includes your principles and needs to prevent you from going off track. And use your concealer to mask the unimportant parts.
IV. Contour, Conceal, Highlight Now contour and highlight a few parts. Use your concealer.
You need structure in your life. You need to set priorities, create a strict career plan to make your wishes and dreams come true. In the end, you're the one in charge of your fate. Learn how to cope with the negative things that happened in the past. Put effort into turning the experiences that damaged you into achievements because you made it through.
V. Eyeshadow Eyeshadow. Probably the best invention to accentuate your eyes, to make them look like they speak their own language. And every colour tells its own story. Find a combination of colours that tells yours.
Experience things. That's how you explore and learn. Life is all about growing and flourishing. Have your own opinion on different aspects to reflect your point of view. Don't hide behind a mask and pretend to be someone you're not, nobody likes a fcking hypocrite. Be yourself, the truest version of yourself.
VI. Lipstick Apply your favourite lipstick colour on your lips. Choose if you want more of a hot pink or red that makes you stand out or an innocent nude colour for a more natural look.
You don't have to be that girl that nobody fails to notice in a crowd because she seems to be followed by an invisible spotlight. You can be that shy girl with a small group of friends and a spotlight in form of a halo if that's who you want to be.
Doesn't matter actually, just keep in mind to NEVER MAKE YOURSELF SMALL. If you've got something to say, then say it, don't consider supressing it. Never think that your well-being, opinion or needs are less important than other's. It's all valid and worth being heard.
VII. Mascara Last but not least, mascara. You're almost done now. You (hopefully) see the world in a different light now because you've created a plan on how to love yourself and slowly build up your self-esteem.
Remember to always stick to your principles, you won't be deceived as long as you follow your plan you don't need to worry about any hardship that concerns your personality. You've got the key to success now.
VIII. Fixing Spray To finally seal your concept, spray thermal water on your whole face to make sure your makeup will stick. It's rich in minerals and water is the essential source of growth.
Do you even realize, what you just did? You've created the best version of yourself. And you didn't even need makeup for it.
