This finding the real beauty in yourself post is a partnered post with Almay. All opinions are 100% my own and may differ from yours. I will only endorse companies, products and services that I believe, based on my own experiences, are worthy of endorsement.
I’ve noticed as I’ve gotten older that I feel more confident… in every aspect of my life. When I was younger, there was no way I’d leave my house without a full face of makeup on. No. Way.
Don’t get me wrong, I still wear makeup most days because I love makeup, like Almay. I am a true makeup junkie. I love playing with colors and, well, I’m just girly like that. However, I know that beauty, real beauty, comes from within.
It doesn’t matter how physically beautiful you are, if you’re not a nice person on the inside, it seeps out and you will become ugly on the outside.
“Beauty is as beauty does.”
Wisdom sure does come with age. Now as a fifty year-old woman (although I have to admit that it sounds surreal to say 50) I appreciate the real beauty in myself as well as others. Yet, there is nothing wrong in wanting to enhance or accentuate your natural beauty, in my opinion.
What real beauty means to me is — confidence, intelligence, kindness, compassion, and strength (not physical strength)… I am a very lucky woman in that I am surrounded by real beauty; I have women in my life like my Mom, my best friends, and aunts, that encompass all that is beauty.

I agree with Carrie Underwood, that if you’re confident on the inside, it will come through on the outside, and makeup can just enhance what is already gorgeous about YOU!
I think my eyes are my best physical feature, so I always play them up. I also think that a smile brings out the beauty in everyone… so smile!
