I was browsing the net this lazy Sunday afternoon and found this random picture of Kim Kardashian.
No, she is not wearing any make up on it and no, she is not looking ugly even without it! Like many other successful celebrities out there, no matter what some of us wanna believe…
Well, it looks like there is a community of certain individuals in the wilds of the internet (and not only), who enjoy every second, posting nasty comments & savoring juicy details of how ugly & gross one or the other celebrity looks in real life, especially when she is tired, feeling down or going thru a difficult period in her life…
Some are even wondering, how many people those celebrities had to sleep with to get to the top, since they are “so ugly! so ugly in the real life!”
Wait a moment… But what about all hard work & persistence behind? Or success is based only on one’s pretty face?
It is a weird social phenomena based on a very law self-esteem & inferiority complex to actually feel happy to discover a stunning successful person being not that stunning in the real life…
What about us then? How do we look without make up or when we are exhausted & down, or in the morning right after we wake up?
True, some of us still look fabulous without any “grooming” at all, and I envy them with “white” envy, but do we perpetually shine all the time?
And yes, we all have hideous photos of ourselves, actually most of them we count as hideous, do not we?
Do not we have really bad days & the days when we feel (and as a consequence look) ugly?
Some of us need make up and some of us do not.
I need to wear my eyeliner all the time (actually it is my only daily make up, but what a difference it makes!).
But apart from that “necessity”, make up also helps us express ourselves, shape our style & make a statement.
What counts is confidence & confidence alone. It is sexy & alluring. No matter what we are wearing and how much make up “sits” on our faces.
It all comes from within & depends solely on how we see & perceive ourselves.
If we are positive about who we are, we do not need to search for “unfavorable” images of successful people in order to feel better about our own looks.
In the end we are all the same boat, whatever that may mean…
