Seeing this in the Chive piqued my interest.
I remember Annie posting this on her blog too.
See, most people would think I'm hot. But they never see me without makeup. This is just to say, I did not come out from Aphrodite's vagina and baptist in the fire of hotness, but rather, I'm born a human, flawed, and looking quite ordinary (but somehow peculiar when in Peninsular). The only difference between me and a plain Jane is that I got skills and wickedness.
So this is me, from the real deal to faking pretty.
Bare face me - anemic, sallow yellow and looking like I haven't slept for weeks with sparse asymmetrical eyebrows. By the way, the doctor said I really am kinda anemic.
With BB cream
With eyeliner on upper lid
With eyeliner on lower lid
With lipstick and gloss
And you get...
Camwhore pretty! With my bra hanging on the background that I forgot to photoshop out!
The tools that keep me looking pretty:
So the moral of the story today is one,
- guys, don't be fooled by those pretty girls camwhoring on their Facebook. You have to wake up beside them in the morning to only find out how they actually look like.
- girls, if you have low self esteem, confidence is the key. And if you don't know how to be confident, learn how to put makeup on. Not just putting makeup on, but LEARN. You don't want to look like a tragic clown. Not for you to hide behind it, but rather shine through it. The guys would be fooled initially, but if they really like you, they'd wake up beside you in the morning and realise how pretty you are without all those gunk on your face.
Now here's a question for you:
Ladies, would you go out without makeup on?
Guys, should your honeys wear makeup?
