I have a little Tumblr project and I’m calling it “I am Morena”.
I’ve been following a lot of makeup and beauty gurus lately like Michelle Phan and some local makeup enthusiasts like Shimmering Andy and Kikay Si Maria and what I’ve noticed is that most of them are fair-skinned. And then I thought, why not start a beauty/makeup blog for the morena-toned ladies?
Why morena? Well, because I am morena, too 🙂 Growing up, I never really liked my color. I think it’s also because of the Pinoy culture – that we always thought that women who are fair-skinned are more beautiful. But, thank God, He made me realize that being morena is beautiful, too.
Psalm 139: 13-14
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
So, let’s get this beauty/makeup blog started! Yay!
