Make-up wearers of Tumblr....
I just had an idea that *I* think is hilarious but I cannot carry it out, so I am going to share it with you all in the hopes that some of you will take it out and test it in the real world to see if it works.
Specifically, women [or any make-up wearers really] of Tumblr, next time that a “nice guy” on social networking or a dating sight or wherever tells you:
“You know, you’d be so much prettier without make-up. I really prefer the more natural look…” or anything like this….
Respond by giving them TIPS on natural-looking make-up application. Tell them that their skin tone is probably [xyz] so some tinted moisturizer or a sheer powder would help with the oiliness. Suggest a good nude lipstick. Send them a link to a good “natural look” contouring tutorial. Basically, just keep sending unsolicited make-up advice until they block you [maybe mention that they could get their eyebrows cleaned up without losing their natural shape.] Etc. Etc.
I would really like to do this myself but (a) I don’t actually know that much about make-up and (b) I think Monotasker would frown on me joining a dating site just to troll obnoxious guys.
So could some of you all do it for me [and if someone wanted to reblog this with some actual make-up tips you could recommend, that would be great, because I think this post shows how little I actually *know* about make-up]?
