I have a complaint or more like a pet peeve. I really dislike when people, especially women, try to be someone else. When they don’t embrace their own unique beauty and try to fit into a mold. The current mold I see everyone trying to fit in is the corsetted (waist trainer) waist, big butt, full body makeup, hair extension, overdrawn lips of the Kardashians.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not knocking the Kardashian’s or the way they have been able to make millions off of just being a Kardashian. What I am saying is why are they and everyone else all trying to look specifically like Kim. Kim is pretty but I always thought Khloe was the prettiest until she lost weight and started trying to look more like Kim and don’t even get me started on Kylie. Not only are they trying to look like Kim, it seems that a whole generation of women think beauty is defined by how much contouring you can do all over your body and how big your butt is.
The butt thing, fine. As a woman who is curvy, I am glad to see women embracing their curves, but I don’t want women to feel like they are somehow less if they don’t have a tiny waist and a huge butt. I don’t want women to feel like they have to be corsetted and wear butt padding to be considered beautiful.
I really don’t understand the makeup thing. All this contouring, and overdrawing. It reminds me of drag queen makeup. Drag is all good (I love me a good drag show) but it is for performance not for going to the PTA meeting. I don’t get why you want to spend hours contouring everything trying to make your face and neck look like a Kardashian, putting in hair extensions, and wearing a body con dress just to go to the grocery store. Everywhere I look, I see a Kardashian and I live in the middle of Appalachia.
Time for everyone to embrace your own unique beauty and stop trying to fit into someone else’s mold.
