I used to have roommates coming from all different Asian countries. The Koreans think that it's a respect for themselves to put on make-up and dress up nicely every time they leave their home. Same to the Taiwanese. I had this very sweet Taiwanese roommate, she has to put on eyeliner and a few layers of fake eyelashes, even just going downstairs to buy her groceries. Some people might think that they are over-doing it. But who is these people to judge? If putting on make up, appropriately, can make someone confident and happy, what is the big deal?
To me, I think, and I believe, confidence come from inner self. But, that alone is not enough. Take a bit of time everyday before you leave home, a nice dress, some make-up, and nice hair - nothing expensive nothing fancy, but the glow in you will shine your day.
Here's a video I'd like to share, it shows that there's never ugly ladies in this world, but only the lazy ones! Ladies, let's stand up and shine together! :)
P.S: Practice make perfect. I used to spend at least 30-minute in front of the mirror just to put on simple eye make-up. But now, 10 minutes and I am ready to go! Remember, put on a smile as well! <3
