Reflection, 2019, explores the relationship between make-up and the person wearing it. Make-up can be a good tool to boost someone’s confidence. Little insecurities that might bother a person and distract them from performing their best, can be covered up. A person can redefine their features to feel more attractive and more confident.

On the other hand that can be exploited and make-up can be used to hide your true self when it is not anymore just a confidence-boosting tool but it becomes a mask to hide behind. One of the aspects of feminism is to be acceptable to who you are and to build up one’s self-confidence, every person is important, beautiful and interesting in their own way. It is a journey and a struggle to be accepting of one’s self but it is an important one that everybody has to take.
