today i had makeup on...and everyone was confused. i received many a double take and even had a teacher comment on it.
and it poses the question...if i/someone has the potential to be more beautiful* than they are naturally. should they exploit that?
*whatever their society deems beautiful
is it a matter of living up to your potential? or giving in to preconceived notions and society and conforming to standards?
mostly i consider it a nuisance and something i don't want to deal with on a daily basis.
but people do. there are girls who wake up every morning and carefully craft their face.
and poor blonde girls, essentially have no features without some sort of makeup.
so, do i choose to look extraordinarily pretty, because i can?
and because i got about 100 compliments today?
or do i continue to keep the expectations low and go about being my natural, red cheeked* self?
let's be honest, it's going to be the later, i don't have the time/money to be bothered with daily face adjustments.
*my makeup teacher keeps telling me to wear the anti-blush (red-out) because the red in my cheeks goes all the way down my face and it's not "natural" ha.
just as a side note, i really hate foundation.
