When you blog beauty you do have to have a bit of a thicker skin especially if you’re posting your picture out there for all of the Interwebz to gawk at. It takes a little courage and perhaps a bit of confidence (both of which I lack but I’m still pic h0ring all over my blog). You’ll get both helpful and hurtful criticisms when you blog about beauty. I’m not terribly sensitive when someone reads here and comments that they don’t like my eyeshadow or my blush is all wrong, etc…I take it with a grain of salt and sometimes even find it helpful.
However, there are exceptions to the rule of being sensitive about my makeup and that extends to…
Friends and family.
I swear a stranger can tell me how much they hate my makeup but have a friend or a family member tell me that and I’ll cry about it. I guess we just want to impress the people we love and like the most and when they tell us they don’t like something about us it can sting.
I think I’ve become immune to mean comments I’ll occasionally get on Musings of a Muse. But if my best friend told me, “Wow your blush is awful!” I’d likely run home and cry myself a river.
Are you sensitive when it comes to your makeup?
If a stranger told you they disliked how you did your makeup would your feelings be hurt?
How about a friend?
Or your husband even?
Would it hurt your feelings?
