How wearing makeup can affect your self esteem

Maine Boudoir Studio 010 900x600 How wearing makeup can affect your self esteem

 

Yesterday morning, while drinking my coffee and scrolling Facebook I came across a post by a local radio station. It was a message they were posting from one of their followers, talking about how her 8 year old came home from school and asked if she could wear makeup because a classmate did. The mother said  “The makeup may improve my daughter’s low self-esteem. It may also attract unwanted attention from pervs. Is 8 years-old too young for makeup?”

I read through some of the comments and overwhelmingly everyone had negative comments about makeup in general. Continue reading »

Katie’s Spokesmodel Test Shoot

Katie011 900x600 Katies Spokesmodel Test Shoot

“I saw an advertisement for a Spokesmodel Contest posted on Facebook for Jessica Michael Photography. I was sitting in bed at the time and jokingly turned to my husband and said ‘I should enter this – haha!’ He told me that I should because maybe then, I would be able to see how beautiful I really was. I rolled my eyes and entered the contest, with no expectations of hearing anything back. When Jess contacted me for my finalist photo shoot, I was soooo happy to have even made it as far as I did! At my shoot, I was nervous as hell, not knowing what to expect, but it was so easy! Amelia did my hair and make-up, so my skin was flawless, and Jess showed me how to pose for each photo. It was so reassuring to have Jess there to make sure I looked my absolute best. When my photos came back….. I looked at them and couldn’t believe my eyes! There was a curvy, beautiful, and confident young woman staring back at me. I have never seen myself as anything other than a wife, a mother, a boss, a volunteer, etc…. It was the first time in my life that I felt good about my looks. That particular day changed me. I became more confident because I knew that I was more than just A, B, or C. I was a beautiful woman. At that point, winning the contest was just icing on the cake for me, because in my heart, I had already won.”
