Authenticity Rules

This morning was not unlike many other mornings. I was standing in front of one of the up-close mirrors in our bathroom putting on mascara. My 15 year old brother was standing at the other mirror in front of the sink brushing his teeth.
Our conversation went like this:

Him: "Are you putting on that lash booster gel thing we saw on tv?"
Me: "No, just the regular stuff."
Him: "Good because that's just weird. It looks all dumb because you know it's not real. Looks bad all abnormally long..."

I smiled.

I appreciated hearing that from him! Someone I DID NOT expect to hear it from. I loved the fact that he has come to love and appreciate girls just for who they are.

So there you have it my lady friends! Straight from a boy in his mid teens and high school years! Authenticity rules in my opinion and appereantly in his opinion too :)
The moral of this story? Don't do "lash boosters." Just kidding, but seriously gals, just be yourself! Just tastefully enhance who you are and relax...

Because that's perfect.

Haha, that sounds like him.
I should probably use less makeup...too many girls make their eyes look like a racoons, if you know what I mean...I think that teenage girls should definitely go more natural..or retro. ;)
