Let’s look at the morning of the everyday high school female. They wake up, get dressed, do their hair and then look in the mirror.
They see someone who apparently needs to cover their eyes in thick chalky eye shadow and layers upon layers of eye liner.
One wonders girls looking like clowns is them sporting a look or if they really feel like caking makeup on really makes them more attractive.
Ladies, this really isn’t necessary. Understandably, today’s youth bases what they feel is beauty on what they see in pop culture.
For example, let’s look at music and television star Taylor Momsen. When singing with her band, The Pretty Reckless, she sports a statement making look with her long blonde locks and severely dark eye makeup.
Those who have seen her on Gossip Girl might agree with me that she is a beautiful young woman. Then seeing her on stage, the amount of makeup she chooses to wear takes eyes away all other facial features and her natural beauty.
Another media personality famous for her dark eyeliner is singer Courtney Love, similar to Momsen she piles the dark makeup on thick and much like her reputation, it looks trashy.
She’s famous for her rock and roll reputation, cocaine abuse and all the wild things she had to say to the media. Every time she’s seen publicly she looks run down and used up. Partially because of her abuse of drugs, and also because of the heaps of makeup she’s shoveled on.
This is the look some teenage girls are sporting now-a-days and it’s just too much!
If you really want to listen to pop culture, any fashion magazine will tell you that when it comes to makeup less is more. When done right, makeup can accent truly gorgeous features on a woman’s face but when over done it can hide those features.
All people will see is the makeup, not you.
A woman, who feels pretty, feels confident. According to ww.whatdomenreallythinkabout.com confidence is a really attractive quality in a woman. How you are presented to the opposite sex is a big deal in the high school setting. However, girls if your boyfriend tells you he thinks you look better without makeup on he isn’t lying. Its okay, I was shocked too.
St. Ives did a study of 2,000 men and how they felt about their partner’s makeup use. One in five of those men felt their partner wore too much makeup. One in ten felt that they looked more beautiful without any makeup on at all. This is out of 2,000!
On a slightly sad note, 12% of women say that they will put on more makeup then they would like to because they thought it would make them more appealing to the opposite sex.
This is kind of insecurity isn’t uncommon. According to www.geniustypes.com Insecurity is easily spotted in those who obsess over pleasing others and a significant level of self doubt. Not that everyone who wears heaps of makeup is that level of insecure. However I think to a certain extent
As a woman I understand the want to feel beautiful, but to truly feel beautiful one has to find beauty in what they were originally given. You’re beautiful exactly as you are. The makeup washes off, but the face you see in the mirror before the makeup is always underneath.
