You look gothic!
Just because I put on my eye-liner, nude lipstick and blusher does not make me look gothic! But, that comment came from Hoe when he looked at me wide-eyed for a good few seconds, at least 10, I think. I wasn't sure whether I should feel flattered or not!
Having a nude face most of the time except for the occasional lipstick during weekend shopping spree for the past few years invited that kind of remark from my observant son. I wasn't even completely dolled-up. And when I showed them my recent studio photos where I was all made-up and dressed to the nines, they drew 'yerrr' (not equivalent to 'Yes', more of 'dislikes') and sarcastic giggles from them.
I just wished they could be fairer to me and give me a sincere compliment. Those photos were the masterpiece of professional hands and touch-up as well. Can't be that bad, especially when Mom could still make some heads turn, err...maybe a decade ago. Now? Not sure, daren't find out.
