Make-Up: For Or Against?
I came across Snog, Marry, Avoid: The Pageant 2012 by doing the usual channel surfing before watching something else but I thought I’d give it a chance and can honestly say I'm glad.
I found it amazing to see how far some girls will go to look 'beautiful', most of them way over-the-top and I was amazed at their attitudes. I mean, I am understanding that people like wearing make-up and even hair extensions because of personal preference and to show off, possibly because of low self-esteem and confidence-issues but when the girls went through their make-under, I was amazed by it. I was at one point inspired into writing a poem, which you might have seen.
Personally I’ve been at both sides of the scale; I found myself “vain” and felt the need to use cover up and but then I realised what I was doing and how different it made me act and honestly I didn’t like what I saw and I grew out of it quite quickly. I think it was more like a phase that I went through. I grew up watching girls constantly fuss with their hair and make-up and I used to say to myself, “I’m never going to be like that, what is the point in all of it?” Honestly I used to find it horrifying because it not only made them vain but they acted as if they were better than everyone else, in some cases even the teachers.
Watching The Pageant, I was horrified by one woman who would get her two children to actually spray tan her twice a week and always have her chest/boobs out. She didn’t stick to her new look after the make-under. Maybe I am biased as I believe in looking natural and that a guy should love you and find you beautiful for how you really look without all the fake hair and the layers of make-up. Maybe that’s because I was always told not to judge a book by its cover, even though I was so many times as I grew up. I do sound a lot like my grandmother these days.
So I’ll bring the debate to you, for make-up or against it and why?
