Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
What actually matters about wearing makeup is: confidence and comfort. If one feels comfortable and confident after contouring their face then, we should do it, it is our style and our preference. And no one has the right to mock us!
There is a saying by a Roman playwright, Plautus, “A woman without paint is like food without salt,” and didn’t he hit the nail right on the head?
Let’s suppose, those fair cheeks would look so wonderful if it were to turn rosy with a highlighter and blush. Those dark eyes would be so mesmerizing with a little liner and mascara. The lips would cast a spell with a little dash of gloss or lipstick. Surely, it would.
People, generally, are sceptic towards girls who wear makeup.
Recently, there have been a lot of memes and jokes on social media on girls wearing makeup. They are getting trolled for farding [the act of applying makeup] and displaying their talent on different platforms.
So, why is wearing a good foundation or using primer a problem now?
Men say that they like natural beauty however, they always end up with artificially enhanced demeanour which is fine, no doubt.
After all we are all human, and it is our human nature that the first thing we actually notice about a person is their APPEARANCE and later on, we pay attention to the behaviour, character, thoughts and abilities.
Anyway, we are not here to talk about what others think about our makeup especially, the male counterparts, we are actually here to talk about what we, women and girls think about it.
What actually matters is to be confident and comfortable. If one feels comfortable and confident after contouring their face then, we should do it, it is our style and our preference.
It is just a girl’s choice, if she is putting some effort to enhance her existing beauty and conceals her blemishes. A lot of times, boys discuss with each other about their female friends like, “She is so gorgeous,” and there is some presumably naive guy who replies, “She surely puts on plenty of makeup to seem that pretty!
Yes! So what? She wears makeup along with her conviction to look more confident.
On the other hand, we see Bollywood stars donned in glamour most of the time, which makes them far more good-looking than their original non-glamourised selves and brighter than their real complexion.
The society accepts the gorgeously made-up images of celebrities and men go bonkers for actresses at one glimpse, yet, utter no mean statements hence, ordinary girls also should be appreciated for their makeup skills and interests.
Why should they face these scratchy comments of, “She looks like she has undergone plastic surgery, she looks extremely fair or makeup ki dukaan” etc.
Women don’t bother about men’s beard or long hairstyles. When a woman sees her partner without beard, sometimes they might feel, “My partner looks more of a school boy than an adult,” because men also look different with beard and without it. Right?
A woman using cosmetics doesn’t mean she needs recognition because even without it, she deems to be charismatic. Cosmetics only augments them to look more confident.
And, who doesn’t like to be elegant in this world? Believe it or not, we all crave to be considered as presentable. We all live to please this judgemental society at some point in our lives.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
I came out of a dark trench in life. Here are a few things I learnt as I got on my feet again, and I want to share these with you.
This morning I was paying all the utility bills, like milk, electricity and newspapers. The bills came to around 5k. Maa asked if it’s too much. I brushed it off saying, this is absolutely fine.
Here is the thing. There was a time (not going into any details) when I wasn’t able to do it. Despite wanting to, so much. I have led sleepless nights worrying about money, during a specific period when I did not work. So, the ability to take care of your mother (my father is no more) though she has her own pension feels so good.
It’s not that your parents always need you. But just to be able to ease their lives is such a blessing.
