People have a lot of opinions about women, makeup, why we wear it, how we look in it … the list goes on.

That we look better without makeup. That we look tired when we're not wearing any. The truth is that there are dozens upon dozens of reasons why women wear makeup, and they rarely have to do with gaining approval from anyone else.
