Honestly, I don’t know how it goes in the other countries but in the Czech Republic, the little girls start to use make-up when they are about 13 years old. A lot of people say that it’s too early and I totally agree. The girls heavily made-up are not beautiful, sexy or whatever they think they are, in fact, often they look funny. On the other hand, when a girl in my age, it means about twenty years old, doesn’t wear maquillage, the others look at her as a weirdo. I don’t approve that, however, sometimes I catch myself doing the same thing. I am talking about the fact that when I see a girl (without make-up, in the comfortable old-fashioned clothes) with a handsome guy, I think something like: Of curse it’s her brother. I’m not a mean person, it’s just something what the Czechs do and what is normal here. Girls about twenty without make-up are considered as an unattractive women. And I just keep asking myself – is this all right? We shouldn’t judge by the appearance but can we just skip that?
These days, people are trying to change their looks, they want to give the impression of being older, blondes want to have dark hair and vice versa, people with curly hair would love to have straight one… All we are doing is that we are trying to change us, we don’t want to look natural, we want to look artificially, perfect. But if everyone was natural, the world would be better, we wouldn’t have to use all that make-ups etc. just because we want to look normal. If we considered acne as a normal thing which belongs to our world, if we didn’t expect that usual length of the eyelashes is more than one centimetre, if we didn’t let our hair dye, we would be in my opinion more beautiful.
