Beauty is the most natural and instinctive thing that humans pursue. Nowadays, not only females, but also males take care of themselves and put on makeup, but still, female use of makeup is more common. But, recently I saw some middle and high school students on the road who had full makeup on their faces and my eyebrow was raised immediately.
What does makeup mean? It complements one’s weak points while highlighting the strong points. In other words, doesn’t it mean to hide parts with which you have concern, while emphasizing the parts with which you have confidence?
I cannot meddle in one’s favor or lifestyle, but I personally think that teenagers putting on makeup is a kind of like erasing their beauty and youth. They are beautiful enough because of their young age.
I can understand teenagers’ sources of troubles and difficulties of living on modern society when I see the news of rising school expenses, high unemployment, and domestic and foreign unstable affairs. Also, there are some problems in infrastructure such as teenagers’ own space where they can release their dissatisfactions and accumulated desires, and in culture and education systems that can embrace teenagers. However in my thought, relieving stress by leaning on their outer beauty isn’t that beautiful and not that desirable for their lifestyle and also for their future.
There is an impressive quote, “Boys, be ambitious!”
Teenagers, have ambitious dreams.
And those dreams come from your inner minds.
In order to reach your dreams, you need to control well the most basic things in your mind.
In this sense, it is certain that your mind is the most important.
The makeup on your face, your outer beauty, can be worked on at any time, and you can also erase it if it doesn’t satisfy yourself.
But, makeup in your inner mind cannot be done easily or fast unless you put an effort into it for a long time, building your own character that you hope to get.
To conclude, makeup on your face is just a moment, but the makeup in your own mind is a process to becoming an adult, and is an eternal attitude.
Teenagers, makeup your mind, not your face.
