Dove Cameron is no stranger to dishing out inspiring words of wisdom on social media, and interacting with her fans to talk about issues important to her. So when the Liv & Maddie star shared a new makeup-free selfie on Instagram, she made sure to accompany the pretty pic with a much-needed reminder that makeup actually isn't at all important to your real beauty or worth.
"100% sure I do too many of these, 107% sure I don't care. I wear makeup for my job, and sometimes I wear it just for fun because it feels like an art project/its fun to work on yourself and feel pretty. I get you if you love makeup and you wanna wear it forever and marry it and have little half highlight half human babies," she wrote. "But for those of you who feel like you NEED IT: A BODY IS JUST A BODY. A face is just a face. Your skin/eyes/lips/lashes/brows are just a result of a genetic code in your DNA. YOUR SOUL is not represented in your pores or your lashes. YOU are perfectly complete within yourself, and no amount of makeup or products will make you more (or less) worthy of love and adoration. So wear makeup, don't wear makeup, but love the you that is underneath your skin. #iwokeuplikethiswednesday."
That's so beautiful – and incredibly true.
