Does this sound good? - January 24th 2013, 05:45 PM

Im. Not sure if right catagory, but...

Ive been bullied since i can remember for being ugly mainly because im ginger.

I delt with it but i wish boys would like me just like they do with blonde or brunette girls.
Many people wud call me pretty. I have shoulder length layered hair, i like it kind of. It isnt curly or straighht or wavy. My eues are big green. And i have pale freckles on my cheeks. I think, not to be all vein, but i myself think im ok looking sometimes i even think im pretty. But boys dont like me like other girls. It it my style ir something. I dont no wether to wear makeup and what would suit me. Can someone help? Ive got a nice size body curvy waist and im prety slim.. Well yh i had anorexia not to long ago.. As i havent been eatingg. But since im gaining weight i want to look good, also fit in to be noticed by boys... I have been with plenty of boys but it isnt the same. Thank you

The key to wearing makeup is to look like you aren't wearing it. You could start with foundation, some subtle eyeshadow, some mascara, and some lipgloss. That's what I did when I first started wearing it.

If you want to stand out, you could try this
Eye shadows that go good with green/blue eyes are:
Green- Earthy tones. Brown, tan, and gold. You could also do green or purple.
Blue- Dark blue, pink, peach, white, or orange (orange is on the other side of the color wheel)

Don't wear makeup just to please people though. Do what you think looks pretty and what you like.

Don't change yourself to fit what other people think you should look like. So boys aren't noticing you at school -- so what? They're just not the right kind of crowd, because they don't appreciate you for who you are. And if you do change yourself and get attention from them, you won't be getting attention because you're an awesome person, you'll get attention because you look how they want you to look. Stay true to yourself.
I'm also not telling you not to wear makeup. If you legitimately want to because you want to, then there are plenty of tutorials on youtube or seventeen and such to look at, but only do things because you want to.



Sorry I couldn't be there, I was tied to a rocking chair.

Makeup should be used only to enhance your natural beauty (with the exception to foundation, which is to reduce blemishes). Earthy tones are best for gingers as said before, and I think browns, pinks, and greens usually look the best.


And here you are living, despite it all.
