I was sat having coffee with my boyfriend this weekend and we got chatting about make-up/blogging etc. And we starting discussing how some of my friends aren’t all that into make up and some don’t wear a scratch. I was telling him that this sometimes make me feel like I’m judged for wearing make-up and maybe people sometimes think I wear too much in comparison to my friends?
Make up is a choice, not everyone chooses to wear it and I don’t have a problem with that. But it has always been a big part of my life and I started experimenting with it when I was in high school. I wear it because I enjoy the application but also because I just think it makes me look a better and I have a lot more confidence when I wear it.
I was thinking this morning that I don’t know what I would do without make-up, I literally don’t feel like me without make-up on.. Is that bad? When I look in the mirror in the morning, I don’t like what I see until I have applied my make-up. I also feel that applying make-up is showing that you are making an effort and that you care about your appearance.
Makeup is such a part of my life for so long that when I come across someone who doesn’t wear any I guess I judge them in a way. And they probably judge me back wondering why I feel the need to wear makeup every single day.
My boyfriend assured me that he doesn’t think I wear too much make-up and that I probably think I’m being judged for wearing it when I’m not. He just agreed that it’s a choice and if it’s something that I enjoy and it makes me feel good about myself I should continue to have an interest in it.
I’m sorry so the rambly post but I just wanted to get your opinions on it. Do you ever feel like you’re being judged for wearing makeup? Do you have friends who choose not to wear any? How does this make you feel? What are your reasons for wearing makeup?
