Why you don't need to be 'beautiful' or look like a supermodel to become a blogger? Because beauty cannot define 'success' In some careers, yes, it requires that it-girl face to be on a cover of the magazine, but for a blogger, not really. I am from the country, where double-standard is real. The norm of a girl has to be white, or Korean-like, somehow recently the attitude has a little bit changed. Some people think being white (I mean white like Asian white not European) is the best, that's why there are so many whitening products sold all over the cosmetic counters. People can be famous very easily if their faces are up to the standard of the society, having a sexy figure is a plus (as well as having money). They are craving for that aura skin, while I can't even explain how much I obsess with darker skin. In my entire life, I have never considered myself as a girl with a pretty face because that's how the society defined me since I was a kid. However, who gives a f*** about that? Being a blogger doesn't mean that we have to be gorgeous, or look great all the time. I think it is all about the 'character' here.
IT'S HOW YOU REPRESENT YOURSELF, NOT HOW YOU LOOK LIKE
It's not just about a selfie game on Instagram seriously. Being beautiful may lead us to the extended opportunities before anyone else, but being a blogger doesn't require that to achieve the goal. Being a blogger is about 'who you really are!' not to be like someone else, right? I have seen so many girls out there whose faces are just so normal, but their styles are too cool to be like everyone else. For these four years of The Equinox Fashion blog, I have come across a lot of bloggers who are really professional at styling, and their clothes are just on point.
You jealous about those girls with a pretty face? Keep that to motivate you, not let it get you down. What is your style? What is your character? Ask yourself these two questions. If you can't find the answers, then there's no point to become a successful one. I think everyone has his/her own story to tell the audiences because we are all different. To be honest, I think being pretty is boring. Those bloggers I admire are those with the strong characters such as street style, weird hair colour, dope tattoo, crazy mix&match outfit, etc. Being beautiful on the social media is just an online game. Everyone can become a pretty person with a beautiful face with the makeup, but once we remove it, what can we offer to the online presence?
LOVE YOUR FACE, LOVE YOURSELF
Indeed, every time I look at my own reflection in the mirror, I always smile and tell myself 'I love you' It sounds crazy, but it works! Do you like when people say they love you? If so, don't forget to yourself too! If we love ourselves, I believe that we can do anything. I used to hate myself because of some reasons, but the self-positive thinking books have changed my perspective completely. I have become the new person who has learnt how to be in love with myself. I feel like I have more passion with blogging, and everything I am doing. Sometimes, people look at me with those evil eyes (as if they have questions about something), however, IDGAF. I don't question people. In fact, I don't have time to question why or how they look like that. It's ridiculous.
