Beauty.

My friend, Chinkara, posted this short this morning...I like what she asks her audience:
In a world where we "put on" different faces, strive to look a certain way, shop to appear a certain style...
Are we a reflection of our culture, or is our culture a reflection on us?
What do you think?

"All this so I can finally find a man who'll love me for who I am."

As a make-up artist, I love changing my look like I change my clothes. It's a great way to express yourself. I am definitely not the girl who won't leave the house without make-up. In fact, I relish my days of no make-up. But, I do believe in looking my best and make-up enables that.

I had this magazine page up on my wall for forever, it had a gorgeous woman fixing her makeup in a bathroom full of women, and the caption read, "All this so I can finally meet a man who'll love me for who I am."

I like makeup for the same way I love inappropriate footwear...it's a little sparkle that's not hard to add. But when it gets in the way of us accepting ourselves and becomes a mask of who we think we ought to be for the outside world, it can become dibilitating, tainting our women into believing that they are only worthwhile if their appearance can gain the attention of a man/the media/each other.
