Today’s dose of makeup wisdom comes courtesy of body-positive Instagrammer Sara Puhto. In a side-by-side photo of herself with and without makeup, Puhto perfectly explains how we should approach makeup. Moral of the story: Do what makes you happy. Know you’re beautiful no matter what. And don’t worry about what anyone else does with his or her face.

Puhto, whose Instagram handle is the awesomely relatable @saggysara, is kind of known for her body-positive side-by-side photos that often highlight how little changes in the way you stand can drastically change how your body looks.

Her most recent post is a great addition to her already inspiring posts. and instead of focusing on fitness or her beautiful stomach, this one is all about makeup.

“I always thought I had to be ‘naturally pretty to get away with not wearing make up,'” she writes.

Yet, just because she has reached this revelation doesn’t mean that she is condemning anyone who does like wearing makeup. “There is no right or wrong way to wear make up, anyone who wants to wear it can and anyone who doesn’t, doesn’t have to!” she writes.

And she includes a statement that applies to pretty much everything in life — not just makeup:

Puhto’s post is all about doing whatever you want with your own face. It’s your choice and — as she writes — your makeup choices don’t define you. So rock whatever makeup makes you happy! It’s your face, your life, and you’re the most gorgeous when you stay true to you.
