How lovely to be a woman. Not only are we expected to fulfill incredibly narrow beauty standards, but when we deviate from them, we’re criticized. Or we live up to them, but are accused of seeking attention or seeming ‘slutty’ for doing so.
I’m not personally into shapewear, makeup, or styling my hair, but I don’t care if someone else is. I have the utmost respect for anyone who arrives for work with a full face of makeup, liquid liner done masterfully.
I’d love to own makeup that isn’t a) from CVS b) expired by several years, but I’m not there yet in my personal journey.
