It’s Time to Cut These Unsolicited Comments About Makeup

LIFESTYLE IMAGE-1For most women, glamming up is second nature. It looks good, feels good, and can even bring a good bit of fun.

However, there are still people who feel like they need to throw shade at a woman for something as routine as putting on makeup.

Giving backhanded compliments is one thing, but being rude and snarky is another. And among all the unsolicited words makeup-wearing women get, these are just some that should be retired immediately:

“Do you really need all that product on your face?”

Putting on makeup can be tedious, but it is a skill that women are proud to have. All makeup products are interconnected; the process is a very personal artform for every woman.

“Guys prefer girls that are more natural-looking.”

Society has this dated idea that women make all this effort just to be noticed by a man. But in reality, women couldn’t care less about what others think about their makeup. Putting it on takes an ample amount of time and work, and all that isn’t for anyone else but herself.

“You look totally different when you don’t have makeup on.”

Makeup is a way to transform yourself, so of course, the end result looks different. After all, it’s an art for expressing different moods and emotions—regardless of what other people think.

Such is the idea behind the new mark. Lip Prism Lipstick by AVON, which encourages women to be unapologetic about their beauty. Every swipe gives you 4,000 prismatic pearls that shine with every move, creating a show-stopping look that lasts for hours. It’s the perfect lipstick for when a woman wants to make a statement—the type that needs no explanation.

This collection features the hottest colours for 2019, including coral (Energy Flash shade), the Pantone colour of the year. There are 10 saturated shades you can choose from, including different Reds & Corals, Plums & Wines, Pinks & Mauves, and Nudes.


Put on something hot, whether you’re going out with friends or just feel like glamming up at home. It’s nobody’s business but yours.

  1. I’m not a person who use a lot of makeup every day. But sometimes I love to put on some hot red lipstick, darker shadows and really feel extra good. I dont use primer or anything like that. I’m 40 and take good care of my skin. Sunscreen is a big thing for me. To protect and care i use products for Scandinavian and light skin. But makeup is an art.


  2. I agree with this! It’s so annoying especially when people say you look different without makeup. People always give their unsolicited opinions on what women should do with their bodies. It’s very annoying but we have to keep doing whatever feels good to us. Great post 🌷


  3. No man or women should be scorned for wearing make up. As a law student, I totally believe it’s a human right! Char! But yeah, kidding aside, that’s true.

    I’d love to try this lippie. It has a nice shimmer that could enhance my small and thin lips. I could use some pseudo-Angelina-Jolie look. 😉


  4. People that feel the need to put others down about wearing makeup are just insecure in themselves and basic because they lack the creativity needed to apply their makeup. Its a shame how society puts pressure on us to look a certain way in order to be considered attractive. If a person wants to wear makeup then dammit let them do as they please and go on about your business lol. 💄
