What does Being the Norm Really Mean

Lately, I've turned into a makeup addict. I spent hours after hours finding makeup inspiration and spent hundreds of dollars on makeup simply because I strongly believe makeup is one of the fundamental in completing a look. I am especially addicted to the crazy/extreme makeup which I called it the face art. Regular makeup only emphasize your existing face features but with extreme makeup, you are basically the painter of your own face. Aside from trying out different outfits everyday, I am also testing out different extreme makeup that goes with each outfit. 

On the weekend that the night market was opened, I become very daring and decided to experiment my new extreme makeup (is a combination of red and white eyeshadow all over my entire eye area, I am so sorry that I forgot to take picture of my makeup of that night). Before I went to the night market, I already have a feeling that a lot of people will stare at my abnormal makeup but what I did not expect was to be laughed at by a couple. My friends and I were shopping along the snack/food aisles when a couple walked by me and the girl was pointing at my makeup and laughing at me while her boyfriend gave me a freak face. Just because I am not wearing the usual or what I called the norm makeup, I don't deserve to be discriminate against from what I like to wear on my face/body! That night I was laughed at because I am not following the "normal" protocol. But what does being the norm really mean? There is no standard that outlines how to dress normal. To me, being the norm essentially means following the majority, do what everybody else is doing. That night I was not wearing what everybody is wearing which makes me a different/weird one out of the crowd but if the situation is turned around, if that night was a Halloween night, would I be laughed at. Of course not because everybody is all dressed up/wearing crazy makeup. All I am saying is I love my style, please respect that! I don't laugh at yours, so please don't laugh at my style.

Today I brought to you guys my hoodie style along with my exaggerated facial features.
YO!

 What I am wearing:
Blue hoodie: Unknown
Galaxy print top: Brandy Melville
Shorts: American Eagle
Stockings: Target
Shoes: Converse
Cap: DIY

A cap that I painted years ago

My exaggerated facial feature makeup, hope you like it :)
Let me know what you guys think about this look. I cannot stress how much I thank you for all your support and lovely comments. Please accept my thank you bow once again.

  4. You pull this look off so well!! I especially love those socks!

    I can't believe they laughed at you!!! People are so ignorant. I also love to do extreme styles with makeup, and sometimes people stare at me, but I don't care. I think people are jealous of others who dare to be different :D

  7. Ah don't let that fool you! You've only got one life, do whatever you want with it! The other day I got a ticket for jumping the metro (ok, I actually didn't jump I just threw away the ticket after taking the train and they asked for it when I left the station.. bummer) and since I had no money with me I had to wait for 20 minutes while they wrote me a ticket. Believe me, everyone was laughing... but whatever.. I mean, what are the chances you are ever gonna see those people again? Probably cero... I just smiled, said thank you to the police officer (who probably though I was high or something) and hoped away... I got a free icecream at McDonalds that day cause the machine wasnt working and they couldnt charge me ... those guys who laughed before at me probably didn't ;)

    Cheers! and thanks for your lovely comment on my blog.. really means a lot when people appreciate writing ;)

  8. you know i support your views on being unique! that girl must be living under a rock, and she should be the one laughed at for being so ignorant :P but still that is very rude!

    i sometimes experiment with my makeup looks on days I go out and i don't care what people think of my dress style :) so keep being yourself and embrace it!

  28. I like your look and it sucks that some people don't appreciate it, don't let them bring you down! I honestly don't see anything 'wrong' or 'weird' about your makeup! I like it and love that you own it completely. At the end of the day, some people just don't see the world the same as others, and it's annoying, but f*** em - you're walking in your shoes, and you do what is right for you!

    Thanks for visiting my blog, keep up the awesomeness! Have an amazing day!

  32. Your welcome hon! :)

    Aw, some people are just weird.. I think it´s so cool that you´re experimenting with that extreme makeup! I would love to see pics, remember to take some next time pls :)

    Actually, I feel just the same way.. But I can´t even wear dramatic smoky eye with heavy lashes without getting comments.. Even wearing high heels and a skirt is enough to get people talking! Ha ha.. sounds like I´m living in a crazy conservative town, not really, it´s just full of boring people ha ha :)

    Cool makeup!! :)

  37. Thnx dear for your follow! I think you look great and keep on doing your thing. It's a privilege not belonging to the main crowd, because life would be so dull that way. I huray people like you! They give daily life colour! That is why I love anna dello russo, I'm sure the couple would have laughed her off too. Some people are just ignorant.

  45. I love your hoodie! And I think it's great you don't care what other people think, I always think the people who have a "different" style look way better than the people with a "normal" style, style is a "thing" of somebody's own and the masses shouldn't be followed when it comes to that

  55. Really like what you've said here - I get strange stares almost daily because of the way I dress, but I stopped caring a long time ago. Being yourself & being content with the way you look is the most important thing! Loving your make-up here & your DIY painted cap! :)

  73. People are scared from everything different, that's why they label what the majority do with the word "normal". But it's not normal, it's stupid. You have a unique style and makeup style, don't ever change it, I for once love it !
