When you want to be original and different for a special occasion, when you want to be really unusual – you resort to makeup. Makeup has been employed by humans since times immemorial – once it used to be a part of rituals and ceremonies. Even today the indigenous tribes color their faces in original ways – to express themselves and their beliefs.
This is how you can adorn yourself for the next party:
“I like you; your eyes are full of language.” Anne Sexton
“For she had eyes and chose me.” – Shakespeare
“Her eyes are so intense I want to look away . . . or never look away, I can’t decide.” K. West
“Almost nothing need be said when you have eyes.” – Vesaas
“Poets are damned… but see with the eyes of angels.” – Ginsberg
“Curiosity is gluttony. To see is to devour.” – V. Hugo
“Eyes shows lies.” – T. Beta
in your eyes
burns my pen
as i write.”
“…so i will greet you
in a way
all loved things
are meant to be greeted
with a tear in my heart
and a poem in my eye.”
“Your eyes will always be closer to your soul than to any other part of your body except the heart.”
“From women’s eyes this doctrine I derive:
They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;
They are the books, the arts, the academes,
That show, contain and nourish all the world.”
Mind that this attractive makeup is not suitable to go to school with.
Also, keep in mind that lavish make up has to be balanced with a less lavish attire. There should be some accent in your appearance. You can’t be flamboyant everywhere, or you will look like Lady Gaga.
Painting faces upon your own face gives you the chance to create, to express yourself.
What do contemporary women say about makeup:
Beauty is not only skin deep. But it is always boosted by a kick-ass red lipstick. Women love the confidence that makeup gives them. No ugly women exist, just lazy ones. Every woman has got her own make up. Most importantly: God is in the details.
