Well…sometimes! — but it really depends on where I am and who I’m with. Like, if I’m playing with a colorful palette at home, listening to music and sitting on my bedroom floor, and I do a bright, shimmery blue-green eye, and then step outside to get some fresh air and El Hub or my neighbor sees me, they don’t even bat an eye anymore because they’re so used to seeing me in various states of crazy makeup, so I don’t feel silly at all around the house.
Or if I’m out someplace where I’m surrounded by other people of all ages wearing dramatic makeup, like at a MAC or a Sephora, then I don’t feel out of place, but…if I am someplace where everyone else is wearing low-key neutrals or (GASP!) no eye makeup at all, then yeah, I’ll feel a little silly rollin’ up in a blown-out reddish bronze smoky eye.
It wasn’t always this way, though. When I was in my 30s, I never felt silly because of my makeup, no matter what.
But everything changes, right? My makeup style is evolving, and that’s cool too. But there is still (and always will be) a part of me that loves colorful rainbow eyes.
How about you? Do you ever feel silly/out of touch/old wearing bright or colorful eye makeup?
