“It’s like really beautiful armor because it makes me feel more confident and somehow more protected as I go through my day. It’s sort of like wearing my favorite outfit except I can do it everyday. I like the way I look. It’s pretty simple, actually.”
John Green, about makeup
So I know people here have a lot of thoughts about John Green and many of you hate him but like….this made me feel good. Watch the video. He talks about how he used to be one of those guys that thought women wore makeup for men. He does say that he doesn’t wear makeup for other people and just likes how it makes him feel which he’s obviously privileged to say. He’s a white male so he (most likely) hasn’t been made to feel like he has to.
