Nowadays everyone is always worried about what they look like.
If they’re skinny enough. If they’re tall enough. If their clothes and makeup are perfect and expensive. But by the standards of the world it will never be “Good enough”. What the world views as “Perfect” is Always changing.
Comparing yourself to the models in magazines and on billboards and getting upset that you don’t look like them is like comparing yourself to a Barbie doll and getting upset that you don’t look like it.Because the pictures in magazines are just as fake as a barbie doll. Even if the article says “Look how comfortable this celebrity is with how they look.” the picture is still digitally touched up to make them look skinnier or have a better complexion or something.
But just as I am saying you shouldn’t feel bad for not always looking perfect it doesn’t mean you must always wear a potato sack and look like a slob.
It’s good to look nice. It’s good to wear nice clothes, or do your hair, or wear a little makeup. If it makes you happy even better. But you shouldn’t compare what you look like after that to what others look like.
I want to go to beauty school. I want to learn how to do hair and makeup to make people look better. Not because I think they need lots of products to look nice, but because I know from experience that a good look can boast your confidence dramatically.
Makeup and dressing up is fun. But it’s not everything. It is more important to be a good person than it is to look good. I have seen many told they are ugly without makeup, or that they wear too much makeup and look fake. If anybody says that to you then know it is not you that is wrong. They are wrong for not giving you a chance.
