Two years ago I took my first steps in this web3 and one of the things that has always made me happy is doing what I like and sharing it with you, I would never imagine a world like this, something different where I can do what I love and also live from it, meet people, share so many things in common with others that although we do not know well, we know that their lives are not very different from ours, especially in this community that was born some time ago, when I saw the opportunity to starting to learn and make up I felt quite excited, since I consider make-up to be AN ART that we can never denigrate or belittle, many will think that it is "the easy way to create content" believe me, it is not.
Actually behind all this, there is investment, effort, time, work, each one of us.
We know this perfectly but out there there is a cruel world that still judges without knowing, I have really learned a lot, I used to put on HORRIBLE makeup and if I make a comparison of before and now the progress is quite a bit, I improved the materials, the techniques and everything was Thanks to this community, to the support of many of you, the support of our dear @appreciator, to the encouragement and good words I received throughout this time, to the money I invested from my pocket and from Hive.
Progreso en dos años, he cambiado muchas cosas gracias a esta comunidad y su apoyo.
Progress in two years, I have changed many things thanks to this community and its support.
Every day I learned more and wanted to be the same as the girls I saw on Instagram who did beautiful makeup, in the process I realized that it was not easy, I thought it was but the truth is that you have to have patience to learn, in many times I put on makeup and it looked bad and I simply erased everything with anger and sadness, I did not publish those makeups because I wanted to do things right, I spent materials on makeups that I have never shown, in all this time I had the opportunity to buy many new materials which run out really fast, I have paints but there is always one that runs out faster than the rest and I have to buy the full palette again to replace that color that I no longer have, to buy them I have to do it abroad since in my country they sell it to the triple the price, I have invested in lights, makeup, contact lenses, wigs, just to make all the work a little more striking and beautiful, to achieve good photos with good lighting, to create quality content.
Behind each make-up there is a process of hours, while I have to take care of some things in the house and even my son, who always approaches me asking me to make him up like a monster or a kitten, while I make up my son begins to play everything just when I have to make some delicate line or very precise details, this adds more time to the creation process sometimes I have had to endure hunger because I'm putting on makeup and I don't want to ruin anything so that the photos look good, on other occasions I run out quickly especially if it's artistic makeup, but I don't give up easily and I keep doing what I like.
¿Aun creen que es fácil?
Díganle eso a las maquilladoras profesionales que se ganan la vida de esta manera, a esas mismas maquilladoras que hacen que tu artista favorito se vea hermoso, esa misma artista que todos los días hace videos en TikTok y tienen hasta 1M de likes,
¿Como llego hasta allí si su trabajo es simple y estúpido?
Now, after each make-up I have to pick up and clean everything, because yes, there is a terrible mess on the table and around, I stain my clothes, my make-up cases and even my hands,
Do you still think it's easy?
Tell that to the professional makeup artists who make a living this way, to those same makeup artists who make your favorite artist look beautiful, that same artist who makes videos on TikTok every day and has up to 1M likes,
How did they get there if they job is simple and stupid?
Today I speak for myself and for all the girls who make life here, who always find a time in our day to publish some makeup that, although we have to attend to housework and some attend to our children, we do not give up and we always succeed. make sacrifices, bringing to Hive this little piece that belongs to us that is already part of us and that there is nothing wrong with it, nor does it harm anyone, Hive is free and that is good up to a certain point, when someone comes to underestimate your work becomes tedious, it's like fighting a ghost, because you literally can't do anything but just express yourself, we express ourselves with makeup because we don't have anything else, because somehow we must defend what we love without harming anyone, hopefully someone will take the time to think about how each person's life affects their decisions, to think about the consequences of the lives that you are ruining just because yes, silence has been an option for a long time me, but when you feel so attacked you just explode.
Today I represent in a makeup this silence that we maintained for a long time, this censorship that we are experiencing and that at least today we are going to break and with the hope that the people who see this community, take our WORK seriously because yes, it is a work to the which we put a lot of love and dedication.
It is a sad reality that is lived in many communities, but today more than ever in #MakeupPower where we are all harmed, especially those of us who strive every day to provide you with an entertaining article, with good content, with photographs, with the process and everything. the ordeal that we must go through to be able to deliver this content, today this family breaks the silence because we are tired of these attacks.
