OK Maxabella this post is all your fault and I will try to go more controversial on my next "inspired by you" post
|Carmen...still modelling..I love her simple style, classic make up and un dyed hair!!|
So the falseness of Make Up...I understand why people wear it as who doesn't look better with a bit of slap on?! but what about the idea of never leaving the house without your full face done?.. Is that you?. I regularly do so and OK I admit my reason is probably that I am a time poor, lazy bugger that knows hubby would still keep me made up or not but wouldn't all our partners?. Who are we actually doing it for? I wear make up so infrequently that I have no remover and just have to wait until my morning shower to remove the mascara..dirty bugger? yuck? yeah whatever!!
For me....I am a bit of a sports nut so make up doesn't go that well in a swimming pool or on a long run but whilst sweating it out in the gym I am often amazed at the amount of girls all made up. Firstly Eeewh.. I mean if you are at the gym trying to make yourself look better or even dare I say it, pull (I met and bagged my hubby at the gym) then sweaty foundation filled pores that turn into spots is NOT the way to go...
|Gisele is my favourite sporty natural model..oh to have that bod!!|
|I aspired to be Linda in my 20's..|
I have freckles and have been blessed with alright genes (I am NOT a Supermodel but it do still dabble in my other job). So in short I hardly ever wear make up... I certainly haven't bought anything other than mascara or lip gloss in a few years and when I do I go to the counter with the girl with the least make up on to buy it from..how can someone who looks like they have been Tangoed be a good advert for cosmetics?
|I mean seriously!!...|
Not to be to hippyish but if they don't like you naked surely they are not worth trying to impress.. that goes for love life, work interviews...the lot. Make up creates a falseness in how you present on so many levels. Visually people don't get an even close to accurate picture of the real you and as for they way people act once they have their mask on...have any of you seen "The Only Way is Essex?" Special insider pic above*
I think I have probably not explored this the way I had intended as it goes better as a debate... I love a good backwards and forwards on a subject so unimportant... you can get really too worked up cos no-one is really right or wrong... I am grateful you made me post about something more discussion worthy Maxabella... and I may just come back here again!
