warning: slight immaturity ahead of you in this post
okay..so my aunt called me to ask for my mom, and then i told her that she's out at a party. She was like, oh okay i'll call her later then.
Then after, she told me that I was wearing too much makeup at my cousin's wedding and my green eyeshadow didn't match with my dress. She said that the first thing she noticed in the pictures printed was my green eyeshadow. My mom also told me I wore too much makeup for a wedding, but the problem is, is that this is biased.
My mom's side of the family is extremely conservative with their looks. They NEVER wear an ounce of makeup. They dont' do their hair. They wear very plain clothes even though some of them are young, and every girl on my mom's side of the family is tomboy. I am the only "girly girl" so to speak, and so when they saw me, they thought it was too much makeup for a 17 year old. Problem is, is that I put on the Milani green eyeshadow wet, so the color was more intense. I put it on purposely because i was scared that the eyeshadow wouldn't stay on as long if it wasn't applied wet.
My last wedding I went to, which was...i think it was just about a year ago during spring 2007, and I wore dark purple eyeshadow with eyeliner, and nobody complained. Green is just a bright happy color so I guess they aren't used to color. My mom's side of family usually wears basic black, white, beige, browns etc. No patterns whatsoever. So to see my green is a shock. No one in my family wears green so it's just unusual to them. Next time of course, I'll tone it down a notch cuz I probably did wear too much eyeshadow, but that wasn't my intention. I honestly thought it was the lighting in my hotel bathroom cuz whenever I apply makeup at home for example, it always looks like I never wear enough. Then I go outside looking like I wore too much, but it wasn't my original intention.
I feel like I'm in a slightly biased situation. My school is a place where girls curl their hair every day, wear heels every day, wear dresses and skirts everyday name brand and everything, and wear full face makeup everyday. Whereas me, I wear a shirt and jeans and a coat--no makeup at all. So i thought it wasn't so bad to take advantage of an occasion like a wedding to wear makeup since I never wear makeup. So it's like...I wish they could have given me a break, you know? It's an occasion and I didn't even apply my makeup bad either.
Here's a recopy of the makeup I wore to the wedding. The green is a bit bright so I'll tone it down next time, but I dont' think its THAT horrible:
Iono...it's just I don't think they understand my point of view...I NEVER wear makeup at all, and since they didn't care about my really dark eyeshadow last time, I thought this time isn't so bad.
Here's a picture of me during the wedding last year:
sorry for the dark lighting. But you get the gist. I wore more during this wedding and they found it acceptable yet they thought I wore too much this time.....I dont' really get it....For that spring 2007 wedding, there were girls whose makeup was exactly like an import model's--and they looked good in it too. I remember seeing an asian girl pull of the blonde hair lookin freakin sexy and she had the falsies on and her skin was flawless and the makeup was art. Everybody wore extreme dresses that was fancier than the bride's and so now...I wore an even more conservative dress this time WITH that extra short-sleeved cardigan covering my upper half.
Maybe green doesn't suit me or something? Maybe it looks too much on me and I should stick with basic colors or something...I like makeup and playing with it. I love all the different colors. I would like for my relatives to take a step inside my school and see that what I wore to the wedding is NOWHERE near as heavy as what the girls wear in my school as a daily basis--not a special occasion.
Somehow..I feel misinterpreted...
