People are fundamentally beautiful just the way they are. But with the introduction of make-up, we are brainwashed that we are not beautiful enough. Therefore, we spend so much time, money and energy in face painting.
I always tease my nieces to go easy on make-up for three reasons:
1. You are already pretty, (This does not count because I am their aunt.)
2. You will ruin your skin. (Say’s who? I’m not a beautician.)
3. You will be unrecognizable should you wear no make-up. (Laughter)
Telling them stories how I did not recognize a few female friends without make-up let alone they scared the living day light out of me will not deter them from experimenting on cosmetics.
Also, I told them that since I stopped using make-up, my skin is healthier, save mucho dinero, more time to sleep and no more worries. I feel more confident being au naturel.
Were they listening? Nope, too busy drawing an eyebrow and putting false eyelashes as long as the elephants lashes.
Of course, they just have to go through the process until such time they become aware that they don’t need make-up at all and will thank me for saying so.
HA! That would be the day.
Yesterday, my sister sent me another breaking news. Maybe, if they will read this blog, they will think twice about further tinkering with their faces.
Groom ‘Sues New Wife For Fraud’ After Seeing Her Without Make Up For First Time
A man who saw his new wife for the first time without make up is reportedly SUING her for trauma, after being shocked at her appearance.
The unnamed couple had just got married in Algeria and after spending the night together, the husband woke up to find his wife bare-faced.
But rather than admire her natural beauty, instead the man REFUSED to believe the woman was his wife, believing her to be a thief.
Finally realising that this was in fact the woman he loved, the man is now allegedly suing her for fraud and “psychological suffering”.
A source told Emirates 247: “He said he was deceived by her as she used to fill up her face with make up before their marriage.
“He said she looked very beautiful and attractive before marriage, but when he woke up in the morning and found that she had washed the make-up off her face, he was frightened as he thought she was a thief.”
The price of the husband’s “suffering” is £13,000.
