WHY why why
why why are people so quick to assume that others carry out their hobbies in order to please everyone else? I don’t know about you guys but I do what I like because I like it and it’s as simple as that. I’ve never been someone that impresses someone through the way that I look, I like to impress people by what i’m capable of so someone tell me this, why do I wear make up to impress boys?
I don’t. That’s the answer.
I want to look good for my daaaaamn self, what’s so wrong with that? Am I being selfish? Am I not allowed to play with make up just because I find it fun and interesting? Think about it, I like make up. It’s that plain and simple. Consider this for a second, my little sister is five and she’s constantly coming into my room to ask if she can play with my make up. Do you honestly think that she wants to impress those snotty nosed toddlers that smell like pee in her reception class? I doubt it. She’s just interested, it looks fun and when I let her play with my brushes and she pretends to put blush on because she finds it fun. Why do you have to be five for it to be acceptable to have this mind set? Why is it that when we get to around 14 -15 years old, our interests suddenly automatically change from wanting to wear make up because we’re experimenting and we enjoy it to wearing it because “boys like it” and “we need to impress boys”?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying every girl wears make up for herself and not to look for boys, I’m saying do not generalise us as a whole gender for doing this. Males wear make up as well, they don’t all do it to impress boys, what about lesbians that wear eyeliner, I’m sure they’re also trying to attract the attention of Justin Bieber lookalike’s and every other lad that walks past. The fact that this original argument totally disregards the LGBT community is annoying within it’s self, come on people, this is 2015, pretty much everyone wears make up and not to impress boys.
Yet, apparently, all girls are attention whores for putting on a little eyeliner and lippy just because they enjoy a bit of self pampering. We’re not dumb, it’s not difficult to get a boys attention, you just have to flash a bit of cleavage and not because boys are perverts before you keyboard warriors go at it in the comments but because the show of flesh is more appealing than the colour of eye shadow. We know this. A lot of us just like make up and we like to accentuate our features, what is so wrong with that? LET ME WEAR MY WAR PAINT IN PEACE BECAUSE I LIKE THE WAY IT MAKES MY CHEEKBONES STAND OUT.
