Dad thinks daughters wear too much make-up? No way!

(1 minute read)

In general, it is much easier for me to be sarcastic or make small comments instead of expressing what I really think and feel. I apologize for ever making you feel bad about yourself when I make comments about wearing makeup or how you dress.

The truth is that I love you girls more than you can understand and to me, you are all amazingly beautiful people. It saddens me to think that for one second you might reduce your beauty down to how good your makeup looks or how nice your clothes look. Your beauty is so much more that your appearance so when I see you put a lot of time and energy into making yourself up I want to remind you that you don't need to do that.

I know it is a cliché but you are beautiful just the way you are. There is nothing wrong with putting your best foot forward and all that as long as you aren't doing it to impress anybody by covering yourself up with makeup and fashion. Also, I want you to attract young men who are interested in you for you, not just for how you look. Unfortunately, my way of communicating this is to say stuff like, "wow, that's a lot of makeup" or "man, those jeans are tight" which I realize can be taken as insults.

True female beauty is way beyond that surface stuff. And on a personal note, I have always liked the 'barely wearing makeup' look better than the 'lots of makeup' look. To me, it just conveys a lot of confidence & class. 

All that said, shake your tailfeather girl. Do your best to look your best. Just remember to look your authentic best and don't represent something you're not, just to get attention. You will attract what you advertise.
