Our Thoughts on Beauty & Makeup

Women either love makeup, they hate it, or they put up with it. It can be divisive. For us, it’s just another arrow in our quiver, another weapon we can use to dominate, influence, and appeal. And so we embrace it, all the while knowing we are enough without it.

At least we have the option. Most men don’t, and we’ll use makeup to our advantage when we can. We know that women perceived to be beautiful have doors opened for them and new opportunities realized. We don’t believe this is correct or even fair, but it happens, and so we arm ourselves with the potential to take our turn. So yes, beauty and makeup can and does open doors for us!

We are also fond of makeup. For some of us, it is a rite of passage, our passing into womanhood. We remember the day we were first allowed to wear it. Or we associate makeup, particularly lipstick, with fond memories of our mothers and the precious times spent with her.

We also think makeup is an art. We can transform ourselves with it. Have different looks for different days or events. We look formal for the office or downright flirty when we want to. We find the act of putting on makeup meditative and love doing it. We do it for fun, with the girls and for other girls, not for men.

We own our makeup. And we can transform ourselves into confident sultry and precocious divas with it if we want to. Or we can go without it. We don’t let makeup own us; we own it, girl!

With this attitude, we set off to educate and inspire.
