Makeup? How Much is Too Much?

All the fun colors, shine, textures and how it can make you look and feel; makeup is FUN (for many girls).  I may be wrong, but I don’t think make-up in itself is evil, but when we use it to disguise who we are, or we feel like we need it or otherwise we aren’t beautiful, it becomes an issue.  God's Word tells us that we are transformed by reading His Word.  It teaches us what true beauty is so you can be set free from insecurity and walk in humble, yet bold confidence in your identity in Christ.

We’re bombarded with the world’s lies of what beauty is every day, but our duty as Christians is to “not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind.” Romans 12:2

Make-up doesn’t make us beautiful, God does!

"Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised."
Proverbs 31:30

God’s Word says we are fearfully and wonderfully (marvelously!) made, and there is no mentioning of make-up being necessary for true beauty anywhere in the Bible.

The world we now live in can be so dangerous for young girls. The world tells us that we need make-up, sexy clothing, not to mention to be underweight in order to obtain beauty.

If you’re a daughter of God through faith in Jesus Christ, and following Him, God thinks and says you’re beautiful, and He cannot lie!  That's good news (and a lot less pressure).

With all that in mind, let's look at a few ideas for makeup for girls!

Remember:  You are beautiful.
Whether your parents allow you to wear makeup or they'd rather you wait; I want you to be sure you know this:  God made you and He made you unique. He made you, you, and He made you in His image.  I am praying that as people see you, they would see His face shining upon you.

"Those who look to Him are radiant..."

Psalm 34:5
