My theme is about women and the effects society has had on their identity. This mostly consists of the exploration of makeup and how it’s used by different people. I have focused on women in my work as I feel like it is more personal as I can put my own personal opinions and experiences in my pieces. This is especially true as I am in the generation of social media influencers creating unrealistic and impossible beauty standards (including big lips, a perfect hourglass figure, and no imperfections such as stretchmarks). As my work has progressed, I have found myself looking at the concept of age and how beauty standards affect women of different ages differently. Therefore, for my final, I have decided to focus on the constraints placed on young girls and the cycle of conforming they go through.
