Super Scandalous thoughts...

Ok, well maybe not super scandalous...but I know that some of my readers will not like what I'll have to say very much. If you have an oppinion, please leave me a comment! Even if you're a lurker who never ever ever comments! Leave your two cents worth for the world (or the 40 or so people who read my blog and watch my YouTube channel) to see!

Please don't hate... this is my own personal opinion and I know a LOT of makeup artists/makeup gurus/parents/friends who all agree with me on this one. That being said, don't let anyone tell you what to do, not even me! If you want to wear makeup to school because that will make you feel better then by all means DO IT! :) But remember to focus on other stuff too and not just how you look.

I wanted to wear make-up in 8th grade but mom said, "No one needs to wear it before they're 15", which meant high school. But once I started, I never looked back!

Okay, now that I've watched the vid (shoulda done that 1st), my best make-up advice was "Less is more. If someone can see your make-up before they notice your face, you're wearing too much".

It takes me, on average 10-12 minutes to do my make-up. Usually because I can't ever get my eyeliner on straight. lol!

I will agree with one thing you said, guys do not want a woman who takes an hour with their makeup every date. I dated one of those, ONCE.

For the most part, we don't care. You want to even out your skin tone, pop your eyes, cool, we get that. Going to a wedding or a "big event"? Sure. An hour waiting for you and it's Olive Garden and a movie? Really?

And if you are over 18 and really want to save time and not do any makeup at all, wear something low cut and revealing with a great bra. We promise not to look at your face all night. :-)

lol'ing @ Scope's last sentence. My man once said, "You wear make-up? I just notice your boobs."

My highest form of praise to a women is that they look good after a 3 day raft trip. Seriously, I dont really care for a lot of makeup, and love a women who looks good when they are dirty and wet.

Chris said...

I totally agree. If Trevor starts wearing make up as a teenager, I'm going to really be disappointed. :) :)

"Dr. Hathaway, are you wearing make up?"

NMOS said...

I agree with Scope. I think a little is alright. Too much and/or too often isn't really necessary. A lot of girls don't realize that they already have natural beauty and actually don't need makeup at all.

Cora said...

Agreed! I didn't wear makeup until I was 17 - although, admittedly, makeup was like HEAVEN to me because I have blond eyelashes and eyebrows and it was sooooooo nice to finally have normal colored lashes and brows for once so all the other kids stopped making fun of me over it. :-(

I take my time getting ready, I admit it. But it's not the makeup that takes forever - that I can do in 5 minutes! - it's battling with my skin that takes time. I have very sensitive skin and I'm prone to breakouts, so I have my "potions" (as Scope calls them) to try to keep the skin irritations at bay.

As for my daughter, she won't be wearing makeup for several years. My step mom got her a makeover giftcard last Christmas and we've never used it because, frankly, her Dad would kill me if I let her start wearing makeup at 12 years old!

Finnally got to this video!

So, yes, totally agree. The formative years should be spend developing what is on the inside because there are the years that form the base of who you are.

The rest is just window dressing. :)

btw, very pretty your window dressing.


still having trouble with the dark circles.

maybe we can discuss this in terms of the mineral make up- i am now using (with a lots of sucess) the bare essentials) :)
