7 Things Nobody Wearing Makeup Asked Your Opinion On

7 Things Nobody Wearing Makeup Asked Your Opinion On

I'm sorry, I didn't realize we all get a say on what my face looks like.

As a huge fan of makeup, it comes with a lot of comments from other people. Don't get me wrong, I understand where a lot of it is coming from. Society teaches us certain beauty standards, which we have to live up to. If we don't, we're seen as not normal.

However, there are somethings that you just shouldn't say to people who enjoy wearing makeup.

1. "You're Wearing Too Much Makeup"

Okay? I didn't realize that we all get to decide how my face looks like. I put a full face on most days. This one is a big no-no. I don't want to hear your opinion on how much makeup I put on. It's not up to you to decide.

2. "Who Are You Trying To Impress?"

Why do I need to be trying to impress people? Why can't I just look nice because I want to look nice for me? I don't need to impress anybody but myself.

3. "You're Pretty Without Makeup Too"

I know. I'm pretty with makeup and without makeup. I just prefer to wear makeup?? I don't know what that has to do with my confidence. I'm a very confident person, and I could go a day without makeup. In fact, I do quite often, but I enjoy putting makeup on. I like how I look with makeup.

4. "That's False Advertising For Boys"

I think this one is one of the worst. I'm tired of hearing "false advertising". First of all, I am not a product, I am a human being. I'm not advertising myself to anybody. Second, I'm sorry that boys are not intelligent enough to know that I don't have naturally golden eyelids and red lips. How is that my fault they can't tell I'm wearing makeup? Also, if a guy wants to be with me, he'll have to get over the face that I wear makeup.

5. "I Like A More Natural Look"

This is the worst thing to say to someone who wears makeup. That's great that you enjoy a more natural look. However, I do not. I enjoy putting sparkles on my eyes and bright red lipstick on. You can wear a lighter, more natural makeup look. Let me enjoy what I like please and thank you.

6. "Boys Can't Wear Makeup"

Says who? Makeup is not gendered, so yes they can. I personally admire boys who are confident about wearing makeup and don't care about other's opinions.

7. "Makeup Is Meant To Enhance Your Beauty, Not Make You Look Different"

This is not necessarily true. Makeup is an art form, therefore, it is meant to be used in however the artist sees fit.

I have seen too many comments on makeup tutorials and heard too much about people who wear makeup, including myself. It's time to put an end to these phrases and questions, and instead, compliment and empower each other. The world really needs a little TLC right about now.

10 Reasons Why You Need Crocs In Your Life

I don't understand why you haven't bought a pair yet.

Crocs have the perception of being the world's ugliest shoe, or sometimes you hear wearing them is "social suicide". Well, I'm here to tell you everything you've heard is wrong.

1. They go with everything

Personally, after finding the perfect outfit to wear to class, I struggle finding the right shoe to wear. I think about all the walking I'm going to have to do and I always grab my Crocs. Whether I'm wearing jeans, yoga pants or even sweatpants, Crocs are always my go-to. I mean, look at these people, doesn't look like social suicide to me. Looks pretty damn good.

2. They're extremely comfortable

If you ask anyone who owns a pair of Crocs, I guarantee you they'll tell you how comfortable these shoes are. It's like walking on memory foam or a cloud, whatever anaolgy you want to use.

3. The color range is fantastic

When you go to most sites to shop, there's a color list. Crocs gives you a color wheel. A FLIPPIN' wheel. Not to mention the bunch of patterns you can choose from like, zebra, leapord, camo, and more.

4. They come with their own accessories

Don't even get my started on the little accessories that can be added to every pair of Crocs, called Jibbitz. They're like little pins that bring out your inner child. Decorate your shoes with Disney princesses or even Star Wars.

Yes, you can get Mater on your shoe.

5. They'll be your best friend in college

This may be my own personally opinion and I may be biased, but with all the walking I do on college campus, these shoes are the best purchase I've ever made. They never leave my feet smelling like death or in pain, which I think is pretty amazing.

6. They can be worn all year round

I personally would wear my classic Crocs all year round but some people may not like that idea. That's why you should know they make a variety of different styles like sandals, wedges, boots and even FLEECE lined ones. Yes I said fleece.

7. You don't have to be an adult to wear them

Maybe it's just a girl thing, but I hated that I couldn't wear my mom's 5 inch stiletto heels when I was a kid, but with Crocs that's not a problem and my dreams aren't crushed.

8. They're a unisex shoe

This life-changing experience doesn't have to be just for girls. Guys, if you want to lounge in your sweats all day, throw some Crocs on. Heck, they even make boots that don't empty out our pockets and make your feet stink, so doesn't hurt giving it a shot.

9. They give back to their community

Crocs created Crocs Cares, which has donated over 3 million pairs of shoes to people in need around the world.

10. They can be worn in water

Nothing grinds my gears more than when I go to the beach and have to take off my shoes, that just get covered in sand anyways. An added plus to Crocs is they can be worn in water.

Most of this shocking and extremely awesome information was found on the Crocs website, where you should go because I know after reading this, you really want a pair.
