Working hard to be more GIRLY

Trying to be a girl...lol

Depression made me not care about my body at all. I didn't think about dieting anymore since I was too worried about other things. I also didn't care how I looked either so I always wore jeans and plain t-shirts.

After taking a break from school last year, I got a temporary seasonal job at a clothes store near where I live. I am really grateful for this opportunity, since this is what helped me push myself to being a girl again lol.

I youtubed how to do makeup (lol) and worked super hard to be pretty since my job required us to dress really nice. Not sure if I did a good job, but after wearing makeup and putting effort to look nice, I feel much confident about myself :)

What do you guys think?

        Makeup gives you confidence? Sounds fishy like that manga “Shadow Lady”. You convince yourself that you need it when it’s meant for decoration…and, for some, cover for their blemishes.

          hmm I never read that manga lol. But nah its not that I NEED it.
          I just learned from this experience that doing make-up and thinking of how to look pretty in front of like lets say, your crush or something, it’s actually quite fun and exciting lol.
          Cause before, I used to think makeup is really unnecessary and fake since we all hide our true faces. but now I am starting to change my perception about it :P

            I find a simple haircut and outfit can be just as exciting. And, I am personally elated when women don’t need to wear makeup Though, I suspect, in time, aging makes it seem more necessary to cover blemishes. But, I hate to see women be so self-conscious that they hide behind it. I remember wearing theater makeup in my teens and hating the maintenance of it. Finding bits in cracks of my face and under the chin rubbing off on my pillow. To think women can spend extra time covering every millimeter of their faces before going anywhere. That’s why I say I prefer low-maintenance women But, on occasion, creative makeup could be exotic/intriguing/alluring.
