#120: Behind The Makeup: The Transformative Power of Self-Expression


What's the most common misconception about makeup and self-worth?

One common misconception is that makeup is a way to mask insecurities or hide the "real you."

Saphire and Michele disagree. We believe that makeup can be a transformative tool for self-expression and an extension of your innate worth. It's a beautiful way to project how you feel inside to the rest of the world. 

Have you ever looked into the mirror and wondered what story your makeup tells? In a world obsessed with perfection, how can a little mascara and eyeshadow transform your face and your sense of self?

Let's unmask the power of makeup.


In today's episode, we discuss: 

  • Makeup as an Art of Self-Expression: Saphire and Michele weigh in on how makeup can be a powerful medium to project your authentic self to the world.
  • Unveiling the 'Costume': Exploring the idea that makeup can be a 'costume' to portray different sides of you. Is it hiding or revealing?
  • Your Innate Worth: Michele emphasizes that your worth isn't tied to external factors. You are invaluable just as you are.
  • Navigating the Fear of Judgment: How to step out of your comfort zone in terms of self-expression without the paralyzing fear of being judged.
  • Authenticity Over Expectations: The call to prioritize your own self-value and appearance, even when it means going against the grain.


Overcoming the fear of judgment starts with self-acceptance and the realization that you can't control others' perceptions. A practical tip is to start small: experiment with different styles or makeup looks in safe spaces where you feel supported. Get comfortable with stepping out of your comfort zone gradually and recognize that feedback from others can be valuable but should never deter you from being your authentic self.

How do you use makeup or other forms of self-expression to project your authentic self? Have you ever felt empowered or restricted by it?



🌟 Episode Highlights 🌟

  1. Your worth isn't tied to external projections or societal roles. You are innately worthy, and that's your superpower.
  2. Afraid of how others might see you? Remember, true beauty radiates from authenticity. You define it, not society.
  3. Makeup isn't just about enhancing your features; it's a tool for self-expression, allowing you to showcase your inner self to the world.
