Anyway, this week I have some beauty related questions for you, as I obviously am into the topic right now. As a teenager I hardly gave make-up and beauty a thought. Getting ready in the morning was more a hardship than fun. This changed over the recent year and by now I´m growing more and more into it. Dressing up is fun and for me this also includes your face. It´s not about looking super garish and posh all the time, but rather to enhance your look and your features. I personally gravitate towards the more natural style with occasional fake lashes. And here we goooo with the questions:
1.) Who do you consider as beautiful?
2.) What is your favorite product and why?
3.) Did you ever wanted to look like somebody else? If yes: why?
4.) Have you ever been bullied or harassed because of how you look?
5.) When you think a person is way more beautiful than you, how do you react to them?
1.) I like the way Scarlett Johansson looks. She is very female and has a very natural beauty. Scarlett looks amazing, even without make-up on. I think I generally like more curvy women. But I also like Taeyeon from Girls Generation. She has a gorgeous face and her character is so wonderful. She is warm-hearted and kind. I think I can never quite separate character and looks. It both ties together.
2.) Since last year I have a new favorite mascara and it might sound a bit obvious, but it is the Long Mascara by Dolly Wink. I have a tendency to rub my eyes and forget about the fact that I wear mascara at all. Plus I ALWAYS end up having flakes under my eyes by the end of the day. Not so with this darling. It stays on forever, it doesn´t flake at all and it comes off with warm water only. (I do use a little soap though, just so that I get the eyeshadow off too.) I can highly recommend this to everyone who is fed up with running to the bathroom 3 times a day just to check if you´re looking like a panda bear.
3.) This is something that is hard to answer, because it´s not like I want to look like a certain person. Generally I´m veeery happy with my own looks, but if I could choose to be somebody else for a day, I might want to wish to be Asian. It seems like they can do any sort of make-up or hairstyle and it looks totally rad on them. ^___^
4.) As a child, yes. I don´t know if it really had to do with the way I looked. Children can be mean in general. But it struck a nerve at the time and I became very unconscious about my own body. It probably took me til I was 16, when I started to dress more daring and became more confident. I never listened to what others had to say anyway, but I always managed to end up with classmates who were bullies all through junior high. I honestly believe that everyone who says that school was "the best days of our life" is a very very sad person. My experiences lead me to react very aggressively whenever I encounter bullying. Nowadays nobody dares to harass me, but whenever I see somebody being treated badly, I stand up for them. I cannot take it.
5.) That depends on how friendly this person is. I hardly ever judge people by their looks. Except when they dress really daring and inspiring. Then I can´t help but bluntly stare at them. Life taught me that morons stay morons, no matter what shape or size they come in.
5 things I am grateful for today:
- green tea with milkfoam and honey. Energy boost!
- Due to the weather changes recently I was totally not myself. I felt tired and faint, but as of today everything has finally gone back to normal. You only know how important health is when you get sick.
- Knowing that I look better without make-up than with tons of it on my face.
- Ellen´s Dance Dares
- knowing what my brother gets as an easter present, theehee.
Huuuugs and happy weekend everyone!
