I saw a youtube short that highlighted what a massive waste of money and time makeup is.

Look at all that product she has on her face. And in the end, once she was done blending it together, it made....no difference. She looked exactly the same, except a bit tanner maybe?

Sis started out looking like the Colossal Titan, yet a guy on the street would look at her and probably think she's not wearing any makeup at all.

Like no disrespect if makeup is your thing, but WHY do we do this to ourselves? She spent hours doing that. I don't know why she seemed upset to blend it when she knew she'd have to take it off at the end of the day anyway. You can argue that makeup is like art for your body but at least a painter won't break out in zits if he doesn't destroy his painting before he goes to sleep.

Apparently she likes to do SFX makeup which is cool looking but my god is it worth it? Literally every "remove my makeup with me" video has her wincing in pain. All I can hope is that youtube and tiktok pay her decent enough money to justify doing it.

I’ve never worn makeup and if you put a gun to my head and asked me to put some on I’d be lost on how to do it. Hopefully I’ll never have to. The one time I wore it was when my mom put it on me for prom, and I cried in the bathroom mirror over how uncanny I looked and washed it off in the sink before going.

That's great! Makeup still oppresses you, though. Your mom forced it on you for a reason. You may be losing out on opportunities you don't even know about because you aren't wearing it like you are "supposed to".

I think it is a very brave and radical act to not wear it ever. That's what is necessary for things to actually change, so kudos to you! Big time.
