Makeup's Deceptions

Makeup's Deceptions

A Poem by Drcicarlo
"

Just a reminder to all the ladies out there; you may feel prettier with makeup on, but don't ever forget your true, beautiful identity.

"
She used to trace her eyes with a path of black
I assumed it was to grab attention 
She would perfectly fill her acne scars’ gaps 
Maybe it was to be the best addition
Barbie dolls, and Maybelline models
would make her feel inferior
but between the shadows, glosses and makeup bottles
She’s forgotten her natural exterior
The beauty flows, and young age glows 
No filter is needed 
Hashtag “woe” nobody knows
but she feels less conceited 
Caked on lies attracted some guys
and made her act a certain way
she has those perfect laugh lines around her eyes
that will make anybody’s day naturally okay
perfect imperfections, aren’t meant to be hidden
makeup’s deceptions, needs to be permanently forbidden
She was born with a face that describes her
Flawless, nothing can replace what is her

i remember the poem Barbie Doll...and how she tried to appease everyone who said she should look a certain way...she finally got there, but in the process, the person she was died.

i think make-up...a little of it might enhance if used correctly...but i really prefer the natural look...the person as she is...

this poem is amazing...especially how you brought in all that silly technology...the hashtag stuff...

we are so much facebook and face lifts these days.

imperfection, to me, is perfection!

Love it. No one should ever feel like she has to cover herself. Everyone is beautiful and should show it.

I couldn't agree more! :) I can confirm, most of the guys don't like girls with much makeup, natural beauty is real and nothing's better than that! Not very related but I just thought of the Herrick's Delight in Disorder from Hesperides, where he writes about the beauty of his 'messy Muse'! :)

This poem is so deep, the thoughts expressed pull me into this moment you have written. How can we compete with the images we see in magazines or on tv, all showing us what beautiful is and it is not us. So we try to paint on a face that is not ours but closer to what they say we should look like. Great writing.
