Lately, I’ve been seeing people straight up BASH anyone who wears makeup. I stumbled across this article on Facebook recently and read the comments (one of my favorite things to do!).
A lot of the comments were normal, “of course she looks different.” and “Hail the power of makeup!” and even “This is why I have trust issues”. But then there were these gems “Her first mistake was putting on makeup”, “she looks like a clown”, “These women are clearly not feminists because if they were they wouldn’t be putting on makeup for men!” Um. Okay. Here's some things that people say that have makeup lovers rolling their eyes.
“Who are you wearing all that makeup for?”
First things first (I’m the realest, lol). As a makeup loving girl, I can honestly say I don’t wear makeup for anyone. Chances are, when you see me out you won’t approach me and say “Damn. Your contour is on point. I like a girl who knows how to chisel her cheekbones.” I wear makeup for MYSELF. Not anyone else.
“You must be insecure to cover up your face so much.”
Just because someone CHOOSES to wear makeup doesn’t mean that they hate their face. I don’t always wear makeup but I prefer it. Why? I don’t always want to scare children with my dark circles under my eyes.
“You’re prettier without all that makeup.”
Thanks, I think. I never know what to say to these types of people. I feel as if you just called me ugly but tried to cover it in glitter and sprinkles.
“Why do people who wear makeup think they're better than everyone else?”
Why do people who don't wear makeup think they're better than anyone else?! Neither one is better than the other. Cool if you wear makeup. Cool if you don't. JUST LET PEOPLE LIVE.
“How long does it take you to get ready?”
Shut up. JUST SHUT UP. My everyday routine takes me 15 minutes. I take longer trying to pick out clothes. Or chopping up my fruit.
“You must spend all your money on makeup.”
Listen. I spend MY money on things I enjoy. I don’t judge you and your cookware obsession, don’t judge me on how much I spend on a highlighter or lipstick. Buy whatever makes you happy and "treat yo self!"
“Seeing people without makeup is why I have trust issues.”
Wait. Is it my fault that you thought I have hot pink lips, a permanent black winged liner, and glittery cheekbones? NO. You’re stupid for thinking that.
Makeup is an art form and I’m a wannabe Picasso.
