14 Self-Empowerment Quotes for Women


self empowerment quotes for women


If you think beauty is just about the looks, you’re completely mistaken. I know this might sound weird coming from a makeup artist. But beauty is much more about self-empowerment and how we feel about ourselves. It’s about the way we see not only our lives but the world as a whole.

Working as a makeup artist made me realize that the way you look is, of course, important, but that true beauty, true self-confidence comes from self-empowerment.

How many people have you met during your life that have this glow that you can’t explain?! Sometimes they don’t even have the looks fashion industry says we should have. But still, they are beautiful, confident, and they rock the world.

And this, my friends, is only achieved by self-empowerment. 

And I believe everything counts in the process of making you feel more empowered as a woman – from makeup and clothes to books and therapy. Therefore, I’ve decided to share my favorite self-empowerment quotes for women.

These are my favorite inspirational quotes, the ones I love the most and that inspire me and those who follow me on my Instagram (by the way, if you want to learn more about makeup for self-empowerment and makeup artist tips, take a look at my Instagram account). I like these self-empowerment quotes because they are fun, light, deep and beautiful at the same time and because they also remind us that we should love ourselves, no matter what.

Beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. You can't put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do you hair with any sort of fun or joy if you're doing it from a position of correction.
