Whether you feel completely confident in your bare skin, or like to use makeup to help you enhance your features, I'm sure you'll agree after watching this video just how incredible the power of makeup is!

I had wanted to film this makeup tag for a really long time because I absolutely love the concept and I think you will too!  In The Power of Makeup I apply makeup to only one half of my face and leave the other side bare so you can really see the power makeup has.

I filmed this for a multitude of reasons - to show just how incredible a few products are (the foundation I'm using at the moment is insanely good), but primarily because I wanted to get the message across that it is okay to wear makeup.  

I feel like a lot of girls are currently being shamed for wearing makeup and this makes me really sad!  I personally feel more 'myself' in makeup than I do bare skinned.  When I wear makeup I feel confident, beautiful and especially as someone who has suffered with acne, I know how important having a good self esteem is!

At the same time, I whole heartedly agree with the fact that you should embrace and love your imperfections; they are after all what makes you, you.  Girls who are confident in their bare skin are the happiest and so slowly I'm still learning to love myself fully, spots and all.

I really hope you enjoy this video.  If you've filmed this tag then let me know, I'd love to see yours!

  3. I love the concept of this! I feel like a lot of people are shamed for wearing makeup if they wear it, or shamed for not wearing it if they don't!

    I enjoy wearing makeup because I love the process of putting it on (it's amazing how relaxing it can be haha) and because I like being able to draw attention to certain features. However, I have friends that don't like wearing it. They don't like how it feels on their face or prefer other ways of relaxing and feeling confident in themselves.

    I see the advantages of both sides, and it really bothers me that other people are allowed to tell you you're wearing 'too much' or 'too little' makeup. You do you, boo! :P

  4. Such a brilliant video and brilliant cause. Make up or no make up,a s long as you're staying true to yourself, you're gorgeous either way. Beautiful with and without the make up.

  5. I love this. I love make up and it drives me mental when people make comments that women are 'fake' for wearing make up. Make up makes me confident and feel a lot better about myself.

  7. Same here, I feel the same way and I embrace both ways of thinking. I love how make-up can empower you and make you feel confident and feel truly like YOU, but I also think it's important to embrace who you are and not feel bad about your flaws and imperfections.

  8. Beautiful

  9. Thank you for this great post! I have to buy this, where can I get the best price? I did a Google search and came up. Anyone shop from there?

  10. What a difference. Crazy. <3

    Loved the post!

  11. Hi Katie! It's nice to know you. I randomly visit your blog and find that this is a good place to learn about make-up. To be honest, I'm very bad at this and putting a little lipstick is all I often do when going out. Hope that I can improve my skill at make-up after a while reading and seeing the videos from your blogs.

  12. I really adore this! Skin looks flawless and beautiful x

  13. This is so beautiful with such a strong message. Absolutely loved the video.
