the state of being faulty or incomplete.
I never show you my imperfection face. But here we go #StoryOfMylife. Last night I was screening my followers and this account caught my eyes, I was silent. I feel connected. Her bio was written: STOP CALL ME FAT. I know I AM! The reason I started blogging because I have imperfection. I used to be dull, acne prone, etc. I also got bullied from my colleagues, high school friends just because I’m not white, have acne. Don’t you know how struggle for people who having fluctuate hormonal changing? Don’t you know they really try to fix it? From that moment I’ve been trying all skincare.

As you can see on SK-II use James Corden and Naomi Watanabe or Dove advert are changing. They started to enhance the natural beauty wether you’re fat
Accepting of my flaws to valuing myself.
The truth is my face is only the surface of myself. If you meet me barefaced and not like my photos, that’s reality. I’m not shame on it. Because I’m too busy accepting love from people around me, knowing what things I’m good at, my best quality. Being a beauty blogger sometimes makes me have to be perfect in any occasion.
