Change your make-up.

Let confidence be the foundation you smear over your face, self-respect the smudged blush that adds color to your cheeks, honesty the eye-liner over your lids. Paint your lips with kind words, etch them in there as a reminder of the goodness you were born to spread.

You don’t need contouring, you don’t need anything more. Sure there will be times when things start melting and dripping and you’ll be a mess without brushes and wipes. That’s okay.

Courage isn’t always pretty.
