Beauty is a Currency~

Filed Under Stuff_, Beauty | 

There is a part of my face which I think is very unimportant, or so I thought. Whenever I look into the mirror or when I see other people face, I never set my eyes on that feature. Which makes me think everyone thought the same.

Apparently not. Many said it is an important feature of the face and shape your whole face. I thought that people only care of the eyes but apparently some people would take extra care of the eyebrow too. Yeah, I mean the
eyebrow! It is just some hairs on top of your eyes, for me at least. I always look at others see, nose or mouth, but never the brows!

But when I read the
Cleo yesterday about the lady who was obsessed about her brow, I got up and took my tweezer and started to work on it! Yes, I plucked away the unkept hairs that is out of place. And I plucked and plucked. It is painful! But hmm.. Paris Hilton said :“You don’t have to be an heiress to look like one – if you act like one, then everyone will just presume you are one!”

, I am not really that vain actually, just a little bored on Saturday night. And I like this lines very much too (extracted from Cleo ) :
We live in a capitalist society and beauty has become a kind of currency. But not everyone has the same currency to work with, because not everyone is born with the same level of beauty! You can’t blame people for wanting to master beauty technologies, because we live in a culture that is narcissistic and self-obsessed.” Quoted by Dr Susan Hopkins, sociology lecturer at University of Queensland.
So, what’s your currency?

    hey wow, loving your site. :) thnx for dropping by my site. hahah. noticed it just now. anyway, i’ve never known eyebrow is THAT important. but i guess u are right. a pair of neatly plucked eyebrows do help in improving your look in general. Though always remember to NOT over pluck them. hahah, you’ll scare the daylights off everyone then but yet again, there’s always this thing called tatooing your eyebrows. HAHAH.

    ps: i so agree with paris hilton’s quote. act confident and u’ll be. :)

    oh and i don’t know what is my currency. MUSIC i guess. :D

    Come to think of it, I don’t know what’s my currency. Maybe my humour. Ah wait, that’s not visible is it? Inner beauty? I think for many, the good ol’ Ringgit (better yet, Euros) is still the preferred currency.

    Just like you, I do not think it is important and so I never really “disturb” my eyebrow. Have only got it plucked once by a beautician. After that, it grew back again and I have not touched it ever since. You can label me lazy. I think once you start the plucking going, you got to continue, making sure it’s on tip-top condition from time to time.
