I would consider myself to be an open minded individual that respects everyone’s opinion. However, one thing that really annoys me is men who think they have the right to dictate whether a woman should wear makeup. Or even express an opinion as to whether or not or how much make up someone wears. The perimeters of this are wider than just men judging women. I’ve been judged by other women and it applies to men who wear make up. Having just read a blog post written by a man about how women should not waste time doing their make up I felt like having a little rant.
I’m a huge advocate of being confident and happy with the person you are. I know, however that it’s not always achievable. Some days my make up gives me that extra little confidence boost for the day, other days it’s just fun for me to play around with. Some days I feel happy and confident but I still want to indulge in doing my make up. What’s so wrong with that?
The particular post that I read used the argument that women could use the time they take applying make up to do better things. Can 15 minutes concentrating on yourself and indulging in something you enjoy really be considered a waste of time?
Women wear make up for a number of different reasons, each of which are equally valid. Furthermore, whose business is it other than theirs whether or not they wear make up?!
What’s something that annoys you?
