Go easy on makeup to avoid looking scary

When you want to start doing something that you are not used to,it’s better to consult those who have been at it for longer. What then is the problem in the makeup department? Is it that girls don’t give each other reliable advice on matters beauty as they are in perpetual contest of who is the fairest of them all? Do they really advise one another on how to put on proper makeup or do they keep passing bad advise down the line?

The kind of things I see being passed off as makeup by young women are simply horrendous. The other day I was in a pub waiting for an exciting football match when two young women sauntered in. Since the patrons were still few, itw was hard to miss their movements in the pub. They passed a feet from me and I played a game I like to play when I am bored. I look at a woman and I rate her out of ten in the looks department. As they passed by I ranked them a benevolent four. A few minutes later they each took turns to go to the cloakroom, each lugging a bag big enough to smuggle a bag of cement through Customs. Nearly half an hour later, the same girl would come out of cloakrooms. But wait a minute! There was a transformation. The girl who walked into the cloakroom half an hour earlier was distinctively dissimilar to the one who walked out. I was flabbergasted. She looked like, ehh..a scarecrow! The amount of make-up that had been applied was so much that were you to come looking for her with a past mugshot you would not place her.

Young women, please stop giving us too much trouble by laying layers and layers of make-up on your faces, especially when you do it and you look like a totally different person. Do you stop to place yourself in the shoes of your boyfriend? Do you even pause and ponder to reflect on the amount of chemicals that you make him eat in the name of pecking or kissing you? Just imagine… You give a girl a peck and you come out looking like you were spraying a car. You give her a kiss and you come out looking like a hyena that has just stolen dinner from a tired cheetah in the Masai Mara. There are women you can hug and you come out looking like you had wrapped yourself around a dusty bag of cement. Then we have those who put on extra long eye lashes, which make them look like devils or some scary animals. Why clear your God given eye lashes, only to draw on your faces imaginary ones that make you look like you are perman-ently shocked, compete with raised eyebrows?

Someone needs to open a cons-ultancy on how to put on make-up, and do it responsibly. Our young women need to be coa-ched on how to make use of beauty products to complement their looks, not replace them. You might assume that you are putting on make-up but you could be compromising national security. Beyond a certain level, it ceases to be make-up and becomes a scary disguise!
