notions of beauty
I overheard a semi-interesting comment this afternoon...the notion that women wear makeup to make themselves look younger. This person equated such acts to mean you were frivolous & probably lying to yourself about who you really were. Can that be true? I suppose there are some women who try to defy all odds of aging and cake on the foundation and all the youth creams out there on the market. But I've always seen makeup as complementary. Why look washed out & pale...liked you've made no effort whatsoever? I guess that's the operative word: effort. I'm not very forgiving of women who look like slobs. Of course there are major exceptions to all of this, but in general I find you owe it to yourself not to look like a sack of potatoes. You don't have to be some great beauty who has the perfect everything (hair, height, face, weight, etc...)....You just need to have an interest in yourself. Bottom line: Go out and make yourself look good (maybe you'll feel better too!). None of what I'm saying is anything new...but I'm still curious to hear what you think of those who try their best to look decent and those who just don't give a care...What do you think?
