Here at Illamasqua we have always encouraged self-expression; however understand the rising pressures that some young
people may feel when expressing their individuality. To help empower those on their journey we have partnered with
some well-known beauty bloggers, make-up artists and influencers to share a piece of advice they would give their younger
self. Comment below for a chance to have YOUR quote artworked and shown across our social media channels.
‘Be kinder to your parents. Right now it may seem like they’re never on your side, but always remember they
care about you. One day their opinion is going to matter the most!’
– Alix Coburn from I Covet Thee, Beauty Blogger
‘Please stop wishing you were somebody else. All your dreams, aspirations and hopes are already within you
and you will succeed and achieve them all as the person you are. There is nothing wrong with you,
you are beautiful, just hang in there, it’s all going to be okay. Anything is possible and you can do anything’
– Munroe Bergdorf, Model, DJ and Trans Advocate
‘Be confident in who you are and don’t try to be any different. The world would be so boring if we
were all the same and the real beauty is on the inside and being kind, not what’s on the outside!’
– Becky Sheeran from Talk Becky Talk, Beauty Blogger
‘When I was younger I would always put myself down so I would tell the younger me to believe in myself
and that if I did that my dreams could be a reality. I would also tell myself that those girls who
would say nasty comments are just insecure with themselves and it had nothing to do with me.’
– Jordan Bone, Beauty Blogger
‘Stop trying to fit in (and stop straightening your curls!). Embrace your different qualities; it’s those
differences that make you stand out from the crowd.’
– Nisha Smith, Illamasqua Head of Communications
