makeup is weird
Now, coverup makes sense. There is an evolutionary advantage to using it. It makes your skin appear softer and more even - which makes you look healthier, which in turn makes you more attractive. I get mascara, too, esp for us blonde ladies who have the eyelashes to match. But think about it.
Everything else is kind of strange.
Last night at dinner my parents were telling me how much prettier they think I am without makeup, and I obviously disagreed. I feel so bleh without it, but when I go to work I don't see the point in layering it on. And my step dad was full out like "I hate the black stuff girls wear. It makes you look hard to approach and high maintenance"
So, I know I posted a while ago about using less makeup - but now I am going to try to use less when I go OUT partying too. Just enough to highlight what I already have. No more black paint. Just what I need. Wish me luck :)
