Are You Putting On A Mask Every Morning?

After reading  this article I found myself wondering why people seem to have such a desire to judge themselves against celebrities and make themselves feel bad for putting on bit of slap in the morning. So many times women are judged for covering up the ‘real’ them by wearing make-up, what if they don’t feel themselves without it? When did self-expression become an invitation for judgement?
I have no problem leaving the house with no make-up on, but I happen to like wearing make-up, I enjoy spending that time on myself in the morning and I wouldn’t roll in to work without putting a brush through my hair or my teeth; but nobody is commending celebrities for walking around with bad hair and breath that smells of last nights curry.
I’m sure some women do use cosmetics because of social pressures, but don’t judge all women by that thought, some of us like playing with lotions, potions and bright colours. What’s so wrong about that?

  1. I don't use makeup because I feel pressured by the outside world, I use it because sometimes I look in the mirror and just go 'urgh, jade, makeup is definately a must today!' haha
