Makeup psychology

The psychology of makeup is a very difficult and at the same time interesting topic, the task of which is to sort out our fears with you and find a way to get rid of them.

Today, the most unusual post format is not only for you, but also for myself.

This is an experimental post where we look at 5 fears about makeup psychology. I’m sure you have heard some of them at least once in your life from yourself or a friend. And in order to stop this process, we need to identify the symptoms, diagnose and prescribe the correct treatment. Let’s get down to it!

Makeup psychology

1. I do not use foundation

Makeup psychology

Symptoms

The feeling that the cream clogs the pores, the skin begins to choke slowly and does not leave the feeling of a mask on the face.

Diagnosis

“Hypochondriacal syndrome manifests itself in the form of excessive attention to one’s health, anxiety for it.”

Treatment

I do not use foundation

If the foundation is correctly selected and matches your skin type, then no discomfort in the form of discomfort or negative skin reactions should occur.

Doctor ordered

Ask consultants for foundation samples or buy magazines that have them. As a rule, it is enough for 2-3 full uses. So, you can not only understand whether the cream is right for you, but also get used to the feeling of the foundation on the face, without worrying about it.

2. I cannot repeat the makeup I saw

Makeup psychology

Symptoms

This is a rather serious problem for many – the inability to repeat the makeup seen elsewhere. Obsessive thought: it does not work, because the hands grow from one place! – haunts and haunts.

Diagnosis

Disorders of the will.

“Hypobulia – a decrease in volitional activity, poverty of motives for action.”

Treatment

I cannot repeat the makeup I saw

Stop convincing yourself that others are better than you and that they succeed the first time. Firstly, you are mistaken, and secondly, this will only aggravate the situation and will not allow you to learn what you can really learn.

Yes, the skills will not come immediately, but over time. Do not try to skip the stage of practice, without which you will never achieve a quality result.

Doctor ordered

Don’t waste time feeling sorry for yourself and get started! Practice makeup with an understanding of where and at what point something went wrong. Then analyze the errors and work on the errors.

3. Fear of red lipstick

Makeup psychology

Symptoms

You are completely sure that this lipstick color will never become “yours” and no matter how many people convince you of the opposite, you will remain unconvinced!

Diagnosis

Thinking disorder.

“Delirium is a false conclusion, which, firstly, does not correspond to reality, reflects it distortedly, and secondly, completely takes over the patient’s consciousness.”

Treatment

Fear of red lipstick

In such cases, I always advise you to start with a red, unsaturated in color, gloss, or better with a lip tint. It does not look as catchy and bright as lipstick, but it allows you to get used to the perception of yourself with this particular lip color.

Doctor ordered

Opt for natural reds like chapped lips.

Choose budget glitters. So you will save money and buy several shades of red at once, choosing the most suitable one.

4. Arrows on the eyes do not work

Arrows on the eyes do not work

Symptoms

Irregular lines, ugly tail of the arrow and the need for a cotton swab? All of this makes you question the need for arrows before your eyes.

Diagnosis

Disorders of will

“Stupor – immobilization, numbness. Distinguish between catatonic, depressive, psychogenic and apathetic stupor. “

Treatment

Arrows on the eyes do not work

In fact, this is not an easy task for every woman. The main thing is to choose the thickness of the lines, to determine the slope of the “tail” and the length of the arrow. I talked about all this in the article “How to Draw Arrows – Instructions for Beginners”.

Doctor ordered

Brushes with an angled handle are excellent for this task. They allow you to determine the slope and length of the arrow in advance. My favorite is the Zoeva 315 Fine Liner.

5. I can’t leave the house without makeup

Makeup psychology

Symptoms

The fear that you will meet a girlfriend or your first love exactly at the moment when there is not an ounce of makeup on your face.

Diagnosis

Obsessive phenomena

“Phobia (obsessive fear) – intensity and insurmountability, despite their meaninglessness and the efforts made by patients to cope with them.”

Treatment

I can't leave the house without makeup

Reconsider your looks and take a closer look at your facial features, which are beautiful without makeup. Do not look specifically for the flaws that can always be found, just accept yourself for who you are!

Doctor ordered

Forget about your fears for a while and allow yourself to relax and leave the house without makeup at least once a week. You will see that the world will not turn upside down.

I can't leave the house without makeup
