anyone else? - October 29th 2013, 12:41 AM

i was wondering if anyone else on TH has this problem:
i feel much more comfortable in dark make up than natural make up, and definitely more comfortable than with no make up. (example: my halloween costume is a vampire. i in no way feel out of place in the extreme make up that im using for my costume, even though it includes black lipstick and some pretty out there eye shadow )
this drives my family crazy, obviously, and even though i have lovely friends, i know they look at me and wonder what on earth is wrong with me does anyone else have this issue? it sounds very silly, but it does irk me a little bit, being the only one i know who wears make up, darkly inclined or not.

Hey Bayleigh,

I can kind of relate to this, but I'm not really a person that wears a lot of dark makeup, but I do wear dark eye makeup sometimes. If wearing dark makeup makes you feel comfortable, then go for it by all means. I personally think natural makeup looks better but if you prefer doing your makeup in a darker fashion, there's nothing wrong with it at all. However you've mentioned that your friends and family wonder about it- I personally think that's just the stereotype of society- they tend to label people who wear dark makeup with words such as "emo" or "goth". But generally, the stereotype of wearing dark makeup to society makes people view you as a person with a negative attitude. However, I'm not saying that directly to you(as in referring you as one of those people) but I think that's what your friends or family might be thinking about. Again, like I've said before, if it makes you comfortable, go for it. I hope this was helpful and made sense.

madness is genius;
and its better to be absolutely ridiculous
than absolutely boring."
