I've been a victim of "you look so pale! Put make up on!" and "Why do you have make up on? I like it better when you don't have any."
If I were to follow everyone who felt entitled to tell me what I should and should not put on my face, I'd go crazy.
Giving backhanded compliments is one thing, but being rude and snarky is another. And among all the unsolicited words makeup-wearing women get, these are just some that should be retired immediately:
“Do you really need all that product on your face?” Putting on makeup can be tedious, but it is a skill that women are proud to have. All makeup products are interconnected; the process is a very personal artform for every woman.
“Guys prefer girls that are more natural-looking.” Society has this dated idea that women make all this effort just to be noticed by a man. But in reality, women couldn’t care less about what others think about their makeup. Putting it on takes an ample amount of time and work, and all that isn’t for anyone else but herself.
“You look totally different when you don’t have makeup on.” Makeup is a way to transform yourself, so of course the end result looks different. After all, it’s an art for expressing different moods and emotions—regardless of what other people think.
Such is the idea behind the new mark. Lip Prism Lipstick by AVON, which encourages women to be unapologetic about their beauty. Every swipe gives you 4,000 prismatic pearls that shine with every move, creating a show stopping look that lasts for hours. It’s the perfect lipstick for when a woman wants to make a statement—the type that needs no explanation.
