I’ve been reading articles and comments about makeup on facebook and other social media sites. I dont know why our society’s making it look bad. Makeup is not a bad thing. I wont force anyone to like it because we have different interests.
No makeup = you are simple and pretty. That’s what our society is telling us. Some people think women who wear makeup are maarte. I used to think that way until I became open-minded. I’ve encountered some people who are “simple” but they are the opposite of what they look like when I got to know them. But I accepted them for who they are. It’s lame to judge a person’s attitude and way of living through appearance.
Get to know the person without judging. There are reasons why people wear makeup. Some gain their confidence through makeup. I personally use it to for that reason. Some just want to express their creativity. Some do it as a hobby. Some do it for their living. Some do it FOR THEMSELVES and not to impress anyone. Some just want to do it because they’re in the mood. Simple as that.
Sure, we have to accept ourselves and our flaws. But people accept things differently. Some are completely fine about their flaws. Some are uncomfortable with them. You cant just tell them to accept it because that wont magically make them feel better. If anyone can do something to improve his/her imperfections and s/he wants to do it, let them do that.
You think a person’s fake because of that? Let me tell you there are other ways to show the real you. You can show it by your personality, attitude, the way you interact with people. You accept your strengths and weaknesses. That’s the real definition of being true to yourself.
You don’t wear makeup and you feel confident about yourself? Im glad you feel that way about yourself. But dont judge those who love makeup. You dont have to bring others down just to feel good and confident about yourself. Anyone can wear makeup and that doesnt mean s/he’s fake and ugly. Just let them live their lives. You have your kown life to deal with. Judging everyone else wont make you a better person.
P.S. I’m just talking about “some” people. I’m not generalizing any group.
