Real conversations with real women about the impact makeup has on their lives.
“No one ended up liking me at all; no matter that I looked pretty.”Zarah
“I remember when I started at a new high school, and for the first month or two I wore make up every single day. There were new people, and I wanted to be cool. But there was no point, because no one ended up liking me at all; no matter that I looked pretty. There’s really no point. No one actually cares.
Sometimes I’ll feel really, really insecure in my relationship. I’ll think, ‘oh, he watches porn with girls that look this way, and I don’t look that way.’ It’s taken me a while to realize, but the problem is more with my insecurities than what he likes. If I watch porn, it’s not because that’s what I’m attracted to, or what I want my partner to look like. Because it’s not. It’s just want I want at that point in time. And I know for a fact that if that if that were the case, and he wanted someone else, or someone who looked different -more like those girls that he looks at- he wouldn’t be with me in the first place. Sure, I get really insecure, but I know it’s my problem. I end up taking it out on him, which is bad, but I’m working on it. I guess that’s what counts.”
