My philosophy on being beautiful is to keep everything simple, and stay as true as possible to my natural look. I’m not a strong believer in make-up. Most of the time, it feels to me like wearing a sticky mask, or wearing war paint. Beauty should never, ever be an act of war. It should be effortless.
I do wear lipstick, eyeliner and eyebrow pencil almost every day. But all this is just to enhance what is already there and not to mask it. Besides, too much chemicals on your face is not very good at all. I prefer to have a beautiful, glowing skin than wear make-up to cover it all up. And so, we move on to what this whole blog entry is all about — skin care products. And we’re reviewing some.
First on the list is Purity by Philosophy.
On my hand is a travel size version I got as a freebie from all my purchases, the one in the background is the regular size that I use all the time
i would say that a lot about being pretty is a lot about how you feel about yourself. i mean, if you feel pretty and believe you are pretty, then, others will also see you as pretty. and no matter how much others say that you are pretty, but you don’t really feel pretty, then… it’s a pretty lot of waste of pretty.
now, i don’t always feel or think i’m pretty. there are just days when i feel totally drab and ugly. but it’s quite surprising though, when someone unexpectedly tells you that you look pretty. like, out of the blue. catching you out of your wits. especially if it’s coming from a stranger. and a woman. i just hope she’s not lesbian, though. the compliment just totally took me by surprise because it was so unexpected. i didn’t know what to say. it’s usually me who compliments others first. i’m quite generous with compliments. i don’t understand people who aren’t. is it because it makes them feel less privileged than the other person?..
it’s good to tell people how pretty they look, even if they don’t return back the compliment or they rarely give any. because talking pretty attracts a whole lot of pretty. and i say this pretty much out of experience. 😉
