I hate when I come across someone who thinks they can tell me how I should or shouldn't do my makeup. I don't do that type of thing. Now I may laugh at you if I think you look crazy but hell it's your face and who am I to tell you what to do....unless you ask me.
My most recent bitterness is over blush. I hate when people tell me that since I have a round face, I should do that little side triangle blush thing where most of the color is concentrated on the outer cheek area. Um, no thank you, I like my little chubby cheeks and I'll blush the apples of them if I want to. So now!
Oh and some MUA that I know says that you shouldn't do a cat eye if you have wide set eyes. I've been breaking this rule since day one so I guess you might as well throw me in makeup jail and throw away the key! And btw, I've worked on some of her clients and they prefer the way I do my makeup...I'm just sayin!
There are several other examples that come to mind when I think of these makeup rules, but I say to hell with the rules! Do what you want to do and what makes your feel great. Live a little!
