I don’t normally wear makeup day to day, so I don’t really think about how it looks to the world. I never wear it to work and I only wear it on weekends if I’m going on a night out or going for a meal etc. However on Monday, after work, a family friend needed someone to do bridal makeup on for her course so I stepped up. I took this ‘before’ pic for my own amusement (most unflattering pic of the century!) and then another after to show my boyfriend. I didn’t think much of it, I know what I look like with makeup on, it was only afterwards when I compared these pictures side my side that I noticed the difference! Look how much younger, more awake and refreshed I look, it got me thinking should I wear makeup everyday? Does it look more professional? Does people’s opinion of me change? Does it make a better impression? I’d love to know what goes on in peoples heads. I’d also love to say I had some deep meaningful reason for not wearing it but the truth is, I’m just not a morning person, and getting up any early then I absolutely need to just doesn’t happen.
On a separate note I hadn’t realised how strange it would be to have someone else do your makeup using completely different products and techniques! It was really relaxing and I have to say she did a really great job, I never normally wear eyeshadow unless it’s crazy, over the top, bright colours for goth/alternative nights, so it was really different to have neutral colours. I think it looks really nice but I don’t think I’d even know where to start!
I would love to know your opinions, how much of a difference do you think it makes wearing make up? Can you face the world makeup-less, or do you like o have the perfect face?
