A couple of weeks ago at school, we were talking about makeup, (a typical conversation.) When a girl piped up, and asked me 'Do you even wear makeup?!' Obviously, at the time I thought nothing of it, and carried on talking about Mac's Costa Chic lipstick. But, looking back, I've only just realised that that was such a lovely - backhanded - compliment.
Which in turn, got me thinking. For me, wearing makeup is a confidence thing - to cover the bits I don't like and accentuate the things I do. When I do wear makeup, I feel much more confident. Fact. So for her to think that I was just naturally that confident, with the way I look, was such a lovely compliment. Does it matter if you wear makeup or not? Obviously not.
I'm not entirely sure where I'm going with this, but I'd love to know why you wear makeup.
Also, I should probably mention the above photo shows a wild Becca in her natural habitat: makeup free, complete with messy hair, wearing pyjamas. (Read in a David Attenborough voice for full effect.)
If you like reading Becca's Fashion and Life, I'd love it if you nominated it as 'Best Teen Style' Blogger, in the Company Blog Awards here.
