Coronavirus and makeup: Why now’s the best time to try it
We’re three months into quarantine and life is looking very different than it did before. People all over the world are finding new and innovative ways to fill their day-to-day – many deciding that now’s the time to finally do that thing they’ve been meaning to for ages. And if you’re here reading this, you’re probably toying with the idea of trying men’s makeup for the first time. Still need a bit of convincing? Read on, as we’re about to change everything for you.
Most people spend time and money on grooming products and services because of how it makes them feel inside – not for anyone else. Got a spot that refuses to budge? There’s concealer for that. Struggling with uneven skin tone? Nothing that some foundation for men can’t conquer. The fact is there’s never been anything like this for men before. Now there is.
And – let’s face it – there literally could not be a better time for it than right now. We’re living in unprecedented times and it’s totally normal to be feeling stressed, anxious and uncertain about what tomorrow will bring. It’s easy to repeat certain mantras, such as ‘stay positive’ and don’t overthink things too much’, but that’s a lot easier said than done. Why not turn to a practical coping mechanism instead; something that will make you feel better inside?
Because that’s exactly what makeup does. You deserve to feel confident in your own skin, whether you’re inside or outside, and arming yourself with the tools to achieve self-confidence is one of the most important things in your arsenal for optimal mental health.
So, spend some time on your own – without any pressure or distraction from the outside world - getting used to your new routine. Understand what each product does and feel good about yourself in the process.
There’s very little within our control right now, but how we feel about ourselves is still very much up to us.
