It Is Time To Stop Judging Women For Their Choices On Makeup

It's 2018, Time To Stop Judging Women Based Off Of If They Wear Makeup Or Not

If a girl wants to wear make up everyday, then that is great for her. If not, that is equally as great.

It seems like in this day and age, everyone has an opinion towards other people. Now usually, that opinion is not needed nor necessary but this generation always feels the need to insert themselves in other people's lives. What really grinds my gears is when girls post a photo of themselves and random strangers tear these girls apart for either not wearing makeup or wearing too much makeup.

I can easily sum up the point of the article in one sentence: Girls do not go natural or wear makeup to please you!

A girl doesn't wake up one morning and think "maybe I will put makeup on so I can please all the strangers I don't know." If a girl feels comfortable going natural, she will go natural. If a girl wants to put makeup on because SHE likes it, then she will definitely sit in front of her mirror and beautify herself.

When a girl posts a selfie on Twitter or Instagram, you should not feel entitled to comment on the photo saying, "you wear way too much makeup" or "maybe you should try wearing makeup." Not only can that mess with a girl's self-esteem but quite frankly it is also none of your business what a girl does with her own body and her own life.

All girls are beautiful in their own ways; no two girls are the same. Some girls like makeup and some don't. It is as simple as that. You judging a girl based on if she wears makeup or not is honestly childish and I don't understand why you do it. There is no point to you doing it except for you to be negative and try to bring people down.

If girls wanted your opinion, they would ask for it. If their photo comment does not say "should I go natural today?" or "how is my makeup?" then your opinion does not matter and is invalid.

What makes these comments worse is that they normally come from other girls!

Come on ladies! We are supposed to be sticking together, not tearing each other apart. It is one thing when a straight guy comments on the photo but it is a complete bummer when I see girls tearing down other girls.

I just don't understand it. As a girl, why would you want to tear another girl down? Why would you want to tear anybody down? I always think it is a jealousy issue. I feel like jealousy plays a big role in tearing down other girls' self-esteem but if you're jealous of a girl then just comment that? A simple "wow, I'm so jealous that you can be so natural/wear makeup" is way better than "maybe you should wear makeup" because you're jealous that you feel like you can't go natural or "you wear way too much makeup" because you're jealous that you can't pull that look off.

Let me tell you girls something: all of you are beautiful. You may think you need to wear makeup; you don't. You may think that you look ugly when you are all natural; you don't. You may think that your makeup doesn't make you look any better; it might and it might not. As long as you have confidence in who you are, you will be beautiful. Makeup doesn't define whether or not you are beautiful, confidence does.

It is 2018. Judging girls for (not) wearing makeup should not be something anybody does anymore. We, as people, need to see the beauty in others and realize that what we say to people can hurt them. The saying "if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all" really gets put into play here.

We should be building girls up, not tearing them down. We should not be asserting our opinions where they are not needed nor wanted. Ultimately, we should not be judging girls when we don't know them or their stories personally. We don't know why they wear makeup or why they don't and for you to judge them about it says more about you than it does about them.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.


2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."


3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.


4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."


8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya).


9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.


10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love, and creativity or to put yourself into whatever you do.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from "The Hobbit." It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."


18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe and the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can remind us of the inconsistency of life. It also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

The Biggest Sister Scandal In The Beauty Community

James Charles is corrupted by his fame and ultimately set up his failure.

392

The beauty community tea is piping hot. Tati Westbrook uploaded a forty-three minute long video basically outing James Charles as a sexual predator and explained how she was there for him through all of his struggles, just to find out she was only a piece in his game of success. James Charles then posted a not-so convincing eight minute apology video and the internet went crazy.

In Tati's video we gain insight on James Charles' personality when the camera is off. Come to find out, a lot of influencers already knew James Charles to be a predator as he is constantly messaging and hitting on straight guys. When someone is presumed a predator, most of their victims come forth and share their experience, James Charles is no exception. There have been multiple people post videos about their experience with him, most of which have similar outcomes of James being turned down, getting heartbroken, and basically telling them that they definitely are not straight. Many of the people who had posted videos about their experience with James involve alcohol, whether he is trying to get them drunk or being suggestive while the other person is drunk. He goes after straight guys that he has no chance with and then plays the victim. Many influencers that had been there for him since the beginning of his career knew that his predatory tendencies were an issue and had actually spoken to him about it, telling him that if he doesn't stop it would be the downfall of his career. But as he was gaining more success, it seems as though he didn't think it would make a difference.

When I first heard about James Charles being canceled, I really wanted to be on his side. I thought that maybe this whole situation is blown way out of proportion, but when I watched the videos it was really clear that this was the shock that James Charles needs to fix himself. At first, it seems like a random video post that shouldn't have been public, but Tati explains that she tried to talk to James, he just doesn't listen. His only excuse is that he is a celebrity, so why would any of his actions have consequences?

Before James was famous, he was ambitious and had huge potential. It seems as though he was really kind, humble, and willing to do whatever it takes to reach his goal. However, when fame got to his head, he lost sight of who he is. It seems as though he is unwilling to compromise and wants to control most of the people he interacts with. Based on many sources of evidence, it's clear to see that James only cares about himself and his career and it doesn't matter who he hurt including strangers, close friends, and relatives.

It is really sad to see someone who is still in their teens go from really successful to hated by millions of his supporters. His ego and entitlement was the downfall of his career. I have hope that he will take a break and be able to redeem himself. Life went from all good to chaos in a matter of one day. Many people and brands do not want to be associated with him because of his predatory tendencies and entitlement, which would make it difficult to get a job outside of YouTube. Looking at James as a person and not like a celebrity, this must be one of the most difficult times in his life. However, it is hard to feel bad for him as he set up his own demise. He made fatal mistakes, but if he can get his act together and make the correct apologies I think he can bounce back, but handle the responsibility as a celebrity correctly after his biggest sister scandal.
