Person A: “You look tired”
Person B: “You look like a zombie”
(sarcasm at its best)
I’ve answered with an unpleasant look on my face, “Thank you for being honest”. I guess it depends on the tone of his or her voice, and I immediately respond back, “but I don’t think it’s a nice thing to say”.
I am constantly tired and well, there are times I don’t get enough sleep. Though, I know no matter what I do, I will always have that slight dark undereyes and lines. I’ve tried remedies and more sleep. It has always been present even if I do have concealer on.
I don’t think I’m at the age that I feel old. Age is just a number and I’m still in my 20s. Well, the last yrs of my 20s anyway…
Next time, I should respond back, “I am beautiful regardless of undereye circles.”
And the makeup artist will come up and say, “let me fix that”.
Let it be. I embrace imperfections.
