Last Sunday (26th may ) , I cam across a very interesting article in Times Life which talked about a lady who gave up makeup for year. That got me thinking… can I do that ? Do I want to ? What significance does makeup and dressing up have in our lives?
I did try to find the link of the supplement on the net , but couldn’t find it. However, when browsing I came across many stories online and this article by the same author: Phoebe Baker Hyde was similar so i thought off adding a link to this one. This is the lady who gave up makeup for a year.
When I thought about it , I realized I use makeup to complete my look . Makeup makes me look presentable for office , makes my skin look nice (it is in a terrible state right now) and overall gives a polished look. Its not that I plaster my face with makeup, but I like to have some makeup one just to add definition to my features.
There is a school of thought , that says that women use makeup to hide their real self from the world… which in my opinion is untrue… If one wanted to hide themselves from the world.why would someone dress up and wear makeup?Having said that, makeup should not be a tool for one to overcome low self esteem. I know many people who wear makeup even when lounging at home as they are insecure about how their bare face looks. Many people do say that a woman spends too much time doing her makeup and in many societies makeup is considered to be the toy of a not so decent woman. Im sure these must be the thoughts of a man who cannot wear make up and was jealous
For me, makeup is an essential part of grooming. Having been in a service industry,makeup and hair was as important as the clothes I wore to work.If you see a shoddily dressed person and a polished person who has a little makeup on them-who would you consult in a work environment? Or imagine a bare faced bride??? Or a glam black dress without a touch of eyeliner and polished ,glam lips. Almost every woman in my life wears some kind of makeup or the other in her everyday life . My mom ,who always has kajal on ,or my Mother in law who never steps out of the house without lipstick . Hell,even my sister in law who delivered a baby on 10th april was dressed up with makeup and earrings et all on 14th april when they decided to click some pics with their baby gir for memory’s sake before leaving the hospital.
I feel, makeup adds to the fun of dressing up and completes the look. Also,its acts as a great confidence boosting tool for ladies who have less than perfect skin. Also.makeup has the ability to make one look glam or at times,make me look like the girl next door.It reflects my mood and who doesn’t like that ?
So girls,do you think you can ever do a makeup detox?Well,I for sure cannot. The most I go without makeup is on my day off when I am at home and have no plans to go anywhere or at the gym as I have been having problematic skin lately and don’t wanna aggravate the issue.
