Inner Beauty Matters

Sunday, 12 July 2015


As a beauty blogger people will always have misconceptions of who I am and what I stand for.  The biggest is that I am egotistical and all I care about is how I look and how others look. This isn’t true. Yes I like wearing make-up and having nice skin and I adore helping others to achieve a nice complexion and find products that they will love just as much as I do, but that isn’t all there is to me, or any other beauty blogger or vlogger for that matter.

What is really important to me is actually that you are a good person, that you are beautiful in the inside. People have this view that because I talk beauty and wear make-up that I won’t want to be your friend or talk to you unless you are visually appealing to me and it’s definitely not true.

You could be the most gorgeous person to ever live, a James Dean doppelgänger and if you don’t have a heart, if you put others down, if you act like you are above others then I won’t want anything to do with you.

In the words of John Green “That’s always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people would want to be around someone because they’re pretty. It’s like picking your breakfast cereals based on colour instead of taste.”

I’m not just speaking for me, I’m speaking for many people. People have this judgement that if they are attractive then life is going to be easy, that they are above others and that everyone must put up with their crappy personalities, I won’t and many others won’t either.

What is important is that you understand flaws, that you are kind, caring, loving and don’t just judge everyone by how attractive they are. It’s important that you know you are exactly like everyone around you, whether you can apply make-up better, have clearer skin or were just blessed with good genes, you are still human and when that’s all stripped off you are exactly like those around you, no better, no worse.

I’m not saying that you can’t know that you are attractive, I mean if you know you’re pretty, you love your body whatever, own that, but understand that there is more to you than meets the eye. Don’t be a horrible person and expect others to put up with it because you’re attractive.

Be kind, be giving, be understanding, be polite, helpful and grateful. What is really important is your inner beauty. No one wants to be friends with someone who is attractive, but makes them feel insecure or unhappy.

To summarise, don’t expect people to put up with you because you’re pretty, just be a good person and stop thinking you’re better than everyone else because you’re not and no one wants to be your friend.

I honestly don’t know where I planned to go with this post when I started it, but I got somewhere in the end.

Do you think inner beauty is more important than outer beauty?

Have people made misjudgements of you because of your blog, hobby, studies or job?
