i was a stripper for 3 years and let me tell you, I've seen some straight up hags in my day. Makeup and alcohol are by and large the #1 aging
components of our every day lives. Smoking probably has a lot to do with it as well. Sadly they would resort to plastic surgery and most ended up
looking botched. There were ones who at age 26 looked 35. Ones who were 32 looked 50. No joke.
And they spent at least an hour every night in the dressing room putting on as much makeup as they could. I'm not trying to bash them, but I do want
to state to any girls who may be reading this that makeup is your skin's enemy. Its a total waste of time and money for the most part.
I knew one girl (not a dancer) who told me there was a point in her life where she couldn't leave the house without full makeup- including fake
eyelashes!! your psychological or spiritual health or possibly both is not anywhere near an equilibrium if you are petrified to leave the house with
no less than full scale makeup and fake eyelashes.
On another note, one little make up brush can be anywhere from $5 to $40, mostly up towards the $40 mark if you halfway care about application. I
have 2 naked pallets that were $60 each. My mascara for work was $30 and my foundation was like $50 or $60. These companies rob us blind and in return
we grow to hate ourselves, dumping more money into a beauty industry that hates us. Then they blame it on men, as if men actually like makeup. I
have never met a man who told me his woman HAD to have makeup on all the time. As a matter of fact most men will tell you the opposite. Patriarchy
is a convenient scapegoat.
And it's not right to call these women ugly either. Just like for the photo shoots they try to get the best angle and lighting, they are trying their
hardest to embarrass these women and give us the impression that they are ugly. They're taking snapshots at inconvenient times, at unflattering
angles in terrible lighting. The captions are cruel and inhumane. I never check them out anymore, it seems they're getting more and more evil as
time goes on. The actresses probably don't have a choice in their publication, it seems like some kind of humiliation ritual or something they all
have to partake in at some point or other. Idk
None of us should be looking to any other person to feel better or worse about ourselves- other than ourselves.
Anyways I've found that the more you bypass the makeup and the hair iron, the more confident you feel the next day to do the same. And it's fun
looking up and doing heatless hairstyles.
And as an ending note, tons of makeups are proven endocrine disruptors, cause reproductive issues, heighten your chances of cancer (not sure which
types), increase risk for diseases like Alzheimer's and autism, and much more. Seems to me that almost every first world privilege comes with a very
high cost, just look at the toxicity of our food, electronics, makeup, mattresses, our clothing, basically everything we touch, etc.
we can only hope that these trashy magazines are one day discontinued but they're like crack for a lot of folks so thats doubtful.
