Photo Day Trauma

There is one school day that occurs every year that is the nightmare of most students (or, at least girls). And I'm not talking about exams or the end of summer break - that's a conversation for another day. No no, I'm talking about...

(Which you had probably realised from the title, but anyway...)

This is the day that every girl dreads - that day when you have to make sure you look pretty and perfect, and your hair is done to perfection... and then there's the makeup.

Don't get me wrong, I love makeup. I'm not allowed to wear it very often, but I think it's a fun thing to do when you're going out (like me), or everyday (like most girls), but the problem starts when we think that we have to splat as much makeup on our face as possible to look beautiful.

*long sigh*

This is not true. You are beautiful with or without makeup, and you don't need to be a "Cake Face" to prove it. There are some really pretty girls at my school who wear makeup, which is fine because they don't put too much on. But for photo day, they use heaps of products (and lots of it) because it makes them look "more beautiful". Instead of looking like they always do, they have pale faces and really dark eyebrows. There was a girl in my form last year who made the shape of her eyes look weird because of the way she wore her eyeliner.

*another long sigh*

Now I'm not saying that you shouldn't wear makeup, I'm just saying don't go over the top. You don't need to hide behind your makeup, because God made you, and you are perfect in His eyes. Just remember that you are beautiful inside and out and if someone judges you because you don't wear makeup, or whatever, then they just aren't worth your time.

I hope you enjoyed my (slightly cheesy) post today - it was our photo day today (well, it was supposed to be but we got moved to next week). Sorry I haven't been posting much lately, but in case you hadn't noticed, it's not the holidays any more :(  I've been quite busy, and I probably will be until next holidays, but I'm gonna try.

Lots of love, Little Robin
