At first I thought her puzzlement was a compliment – that my skin looked so good it appeared as though I was wearing more than just eye make up – but I soon realised that the concept of a fresh face had been abandoned by this one some time ago.
There is however, a case for make up. There’s this one girl who hangs out with people I hang out with. I saw her first in a photo on my friend’s facebook and commented on how stunning she was. He replied that she was indeed stunning, but also deceptively larger than she appeared – mostly due to her well-executed application of full make up.
So now it has me thinking, should I take this theory into the every day? Is it not just the camera flash highlighting my flaws – do the harsh office lights have the same effect? Should I care? I’m never going to take it as far as my Farmers friend, it’s her job to cake that shit on, but am I letting myself down in the one area where I thought “keeping it natural” was enhancing my appearance.
Is a natural 8 worth more than a made-up 9? What do you think?
