Beauty Routine: Before and After

By Abby Smith |

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about a few of the comments I’ve received. They are usually so nice and uplifting, making me feel like the prettiest girl in the world. Yet behind their words I can hear a little self doubt and comparison. My goal in blogging is to help other women feel empowered. I want to teach you how to grow longer hair and how to style it a billion different beautiful ways! I want to share with you my style so that it makes shopping a little bit easier. As a blogger, I get to choose which photos you see and which ones you don’t. I share only the prettiest moments of my life. In doing so, you don’t ever get to see the “before” me, the one that isn’t dolled up and has been taking care of babies all day. I’m usually wearing sweats and my hair is usually in a ponytail. But I don’t usually share that with you!

So today I’ve decided to hold nothing back. I’ve picked the most honest before picture I could find. And sorry … I look like I’m ready to murder someone, huh!?  Well, there’s nothing like posing for the camera when you don’t have your face on! I want every woman reading this post to remember that anyone can achieve outer beauty. Anyone. It’s all about playing up those features you love about yourself and diminishing the ones you’re most self conscious of. As far as inner beauty goes? I’ve known some of the prettiest people who are just purely ugly. Annnndd … that’s all the time we have for that subject! Haha!

So here you go. My before and after beauty routine. See what a difference a little makeup can do for someone? Haha, yeeeesss!
