I’ve been wearing more makeup lately than I used to, and inevitably, I more often get to hear:
“Oh, you don’t need makeup. You’re beautiful without it!”
And I talk a lot of beauty and loving myself just how I am. Some people feel these two things are hypocritical, to love yourself and wear makeup. And okay, yes, let’s acknowledge that there are women who feel pressured to wear it despite not wanting to. This happens. But a lot of the time, women wear makeup for themselves. It’s fun! It’s expressive. It’s artistic. It’s not “necessary,” but neither is pizza.
I’m not trying to cover anything up the same way an artist isn’t putting paint on a canvas for the sake of covering the canvas.
(Edit: Also, I’m getting calls for people wanting t-shirts of this. If you feel the same, let me know. I would gladly print some of these.)
There’s too much good stuff on Tumblr tonight!
(and yes, Megan! Make shirts!)
To the asshole that came into work over a year ago and told me “hey goth-girl, you’d look so pretty if you didn’t wear so much make up”:
Kiss my fucking miniskirt, cat eye, false-lash-wearing, Mod ass.
Finals are right around the corner. Have some calming manatee to make everything better. <3
Things I need to see today ;_____;
Things everyone needs to see every day
I’m crying because of a manitee. Never thought I’d say that.
I made cthulu bread.
I don’t recommend this recipe. The dough takes a long time to rise.
And the screaming of the yeast is really annoying, like unto the howling of the hopelessly mad.
IA! IA! CIABATTA FHTAGN
