Sometimes I look at pictures of other girls and I think to myself: “Why is she so fabulous. It really isn’t fair.”
And then I remember that none of her “beauty” is natural or real. Fake hair, fake eyelashes, contacts, fake tan, cover-up, concealer, foundation.
And then I look at myself, naturally long wavy hair, mascara to define my real eyelashes, concealer to cover up the dark circles under my eyes, and pink or gold eyeshadow to bring out the hazel in my eyes.
But I can’t help but wonder, “Why am I still not as pretty as her?”
I hate not being stick skinny, with perfect beach hair, or voluminous eyelashes, perfect tan and tall, not being able to wear whatever I want.
But then I love having natural beauty, not having to hide behind that much makeup to achieve the “perfection” girls like me envy. So I guess it’s really a win-lose.
I like being able to wake up with my hair already wavy and naturally long, only having to use mascara and a hint of eyeshadow, but then I feel self conscious when I see these “perfect” girls, because really, for a day I wouldn’t mind being society’s version of perfect and having other people envy my beauty.
