Podcast Episode #19- Outdated Beauty Rules

Episode 19: Show Notes

Rules are made to be broken, right? We certainly think so, at least when it comes to beauty rules. For years, women have been told what to wear and how to look, from not wearing lip gloss over a certain age to only wearing dark lipstick during the winter months, and in today’s episode, we debunk some of these outdated and unnecessary trends in favor of doing what makes you feel good. At the end of the day, that is what fashion and makeup is all about! They are simply tools that you can use to express yourself, so go ahead; contrast your lip liner with your lipstick, wear that shimmery eyeshadow, wear no makeup at all if you want to! Makeup should be a fun learning process about what you like and what works for you. We encourage you to go forth, play with products, and be daring, because the only rule is that there are no rules. Tune in today to learn more!

“As a rule, whether it’s fashion or beauty, there are no rules. Do what makes you happy. Do what makes you feel good.” — Kelly Castillo [0:06:59]

“Whether it’s a trend or not, TikTok and all these social media platforms are finding really cool, new, inventive ways [to] find shortcuts and help [us] out.” — Megan Block [0:24:03]

“[Makeup] doesn’t have to flatter you. The goal is not to look pretty for the opposite sex or anyone other than yourself.” — Kelly Castillo [0:28:21]

“If I were to ever complain about a man being inappropriate to me, or saying [something inappropriate], or looking too long, people will probably judge what I’m wearing before they would judge what he’s doing. How is that my responsibility?” — Megan Block [0:39:48]

“I would definitely encourage [you] to play around with different products and just see what works for you. That applies to makeup and skincare.” — Kelly Castillo [0:47:55]
