I was watching a tutorial on the Tube, and I noticed how the lady in question had very obvious, thick grey contact lenses in. I’ve personally never seen the appeal of wearing contacts because they are so obvious and make you look stoned (unless I suppose, you are stoned or you are going for a very specific look).
I have delicate eyes anyway and I won’t mess about with my corneas.
Which begs the question – how fake is too fake?
You could say Make Up itself is artifice anyway – but what I do love about make up is that it washes off easily.
For me, personally – I am interested in flaws, in imperfections and I am super low maintenance so I don’t do fake tan, fake nails (have you ever seen the bacteria that grows underneath the fake nail?! I have, under a microscope, and if you did it would probably put you off for life), fake hair (just cos it seems a bit weird having someone else’s hair weaved on to my head but I wouldn’t say no to trying out clip in pieces), really fake white teeth. Natural teeth aren’t actually glow in the dark white.
I guess that’s why I would dabble in teeth whitening kits, I would dabble with clip in hair and nail polish, but I wouldn’t install any permanent fakery onto my body. Surely things like long and glossy hair, bright and straight teeth, healthy nails were supposed to show that you took care of yourself as opposed to the the fact you could afford to buy these features. Because when people need to put their sunglasses on when they see you walking down the street, you’ve probably gone a little too far.
That’s just me of course. What about you? Where do you draw the line?
