[One] of the things that continues to stick in my craw — both as a person with strong feminist leanings and a person who enjoys the more experimental assets of makeup — is this weird insistence from “beauty experts,” women’s magazines, and advertising, among other sources, that women HAVE TO, or SHOULD, wear makeup at all times, no matter the location (at home!), occasion (going to see friends! going to the grocery store!), or season (summer, and it’s 106 outside with humidity!). This is also why I tend to get really weirded out when I see articles and slideshows for summer makeup, many of which imply that a full face of product is somehow necessary during the hottest months of the year (and probably getting hotter—thanks, global warming). Because ladies need to always look amazing, or something.
