I'm realizing that sounds rather nebulous.
I mean part of the purpose of makeup, is to emphasize some features and de-emphasize others. In the bitwise sense :) it is a mask.
I've been working like a slave on getting rid of my adult acne...and it is much better. I can forget on some days that I have it. But I always feel more comfortable with my tinted franken-sunscreen and powder on. I just do.
It is more the notion...that I think it is okay for women to have flaws. Not that we shouldn't try to improve our looks.
Does that make any sense?
At one point...I feel that too much becomes too much. I don't know how to put it. When I do my makeup in the morning, I always leave some flaws showing. I like to obscure flaws but not obliterate them.
In that sense...it still hasn't bothered me yet that I'm getting old. It should bother me. I should look in the mirror and cry. :) But I don't. I just keep on coloring my hair. lol
It would freak me out to do Botox. I don't want to look like a 20-year-old.
Does that make more sense? I find it disturbing to...look completely different with makeup on. I'm not talking about the obvious stuff like covering up acne. I've covered mine up...it doesn't bother me to do that.
