Truth Tuesday: Less Is More… On Your Face

10
LOL... ok this is extreme... or is it?

I have a friend; A very pretty girl by most people’s standards, and someone that in my opinion doesn’t need too much work done on her face to appear presentable. But hey, what do I know? I’m just a guy… How would I know these things?

Recently though it seems like she has turned around and decided that for some odd reason, shooting herself everyday with a makeup gun is the way forward. Contrary to what she might think, or what her “friends” tell her, she looks a complete mess.

It got me thinking “what’s with all the excess makeup with some babes?” Now to the best of my knowledge, makeup is meant to enhance features, and cover some blemishes, blah blah blah, but when it begins to look like you have a disposable face, then I think something is going very wrong somewhere. No need to completely shave the eyebrows only to paint another huge semi-circle on your face, or put eye-lashes that are as long as broomsticks, or put so much of that red stuff (blush I think) that you damn near look like a strawberry. Are we trying to look like masquerades here?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-makeup or #teamnatural or anything like that, but seriously… coming from a guy, it’s not cute, and the last time I checked, this was done to impress men (or women… u never know). I don’t want to hug you and then have an imprint of your face on my shirt. No, No No… that is not cute at all. That is actually an epic fail

Probably the one thing that irks me the most is the ‘friend’s’ compliment/approval. OMG, you know your friend is looking a hot mess, and you still dash her numerous compliments, or nod in approval. I look at some facebook pictures and I see all these “Oh girl you look hot”, “oooo I love the makeup,” “Babe you look fierce” etc. But in reality, these friends know they wont dare do the same thing. Why dash fake compliments now?… Not nice 😐

I’m a firm believer in ‘Less is More’. Coming from a guy, I’d rather see someone that doesn’t even look like they have makeup on, but they do. Small small tings here and there, and when you wash it off you don’t look like an entirely different human being. Then again I might be wrong… Maybe I just don’t get it. Maybe it’s not my place to understand, but me I sha don’t think there’s anything cute or hot about make up so thick it seems like you applied a clay mask on your face.

And I’m done.

Hopefully no one takes offense to this (or do). It really comes from a good place.

These days people harass me cos of my posts and tweets… *sigh*… Hopefully I don’t get calls and BBMs saying “xyz was this and that.” If you didn’t take offense though, drop a comment… actually if you took offense drop a comment too. I don’t mind the curses… if any.

Peace

  1. LMAO @ makeup gun….but really less is truly more. no be say I too know o,but I’d like to share a few tips

    1.The first step to good makeup is getting ur foundation or powder shade right. u should test ur powder on the lower part of ur cheek and make sure it blends with ur neck so u don’t end up lookin like aribabas clay mask

    2.Save the loud make up for nights out and if u must go loud,choose btw loud eyes or loud lips,never play the two. that’s for the calabar carnival.

    3.False lashes are sexier when they look close to natural.so try the short ones for a change.

    4.Don’t wipe out ur lovely brows,let them grow,then have a makeup artist shapen it nicely.but the problem is even makeup artists r guilty of makeup crimes.if u really love make up,u can go for a one-day personal makeup class ,it doesn’t cost anything.

  3. lol i had that happen to me.once when i hugged a friend of mine and her whole face was on my jacket.. not a good look on women at all.

  4. You are so right with this one. The one that really annoys me is all the fake comments their friends give them..like y? it’s not fair on the person that has the makeup overdose on their face.

  5. LOL…. yea i think its ridiculous when you don't look anything like yourself after applying make up….VERY ridiculous…
    and Trust me..if you look a mess and your friends are saying otherwise, you need to check those friends…but seriously you dont even need those "friends" to lie to you… We should ALL have some kinda mirror in our homes…(Huge or Small)…if you feel like you look funny…you probably do… 🙂

  6. ARIBABA you are right on this one. Less is always more. This not only applies to makeup it also applies to clothing-some ladies should leave more for the imagination instead of wearing things that reveal everything. I can't wait to read a write-up from you r/t choice of clothing by some females;there is a big difference between looking sexy and looking slutty.

  7. LMAO at “shoot herself with a make-up gun!
    I agree with you, make up is meant enhance your features and not make us denounce you….
