Is the dedication to putting on makeup equivalent to getting breast implants?
Many people seem to frown upon the obsession with breast implants these days. There seem to be so many problems with procedures and so many stigmas against doing it. But despite all the consequences, thousands of women (and we won’t get into men) continue to do it.
Now, I don’t know the percentage of women that put on makeup on a daily basis, but I would imagine it to be extremely high, especially in the western world. This obsession is obviously regarded as more acceptable among the masses and most people would agree that it is more acceptable than a procedure such as breast implants.
But is it? Women seem to get breast implants because they feel better about themselves. They feel more attractive, more confident, and more like a woman. Isn’t the same true for women who use makeup? Sure, there is an actual procedure involved in getting implants, but isn’t the amount of dedication something to be recognized? Women may not have to go through a surgical procedure to put on makeup, but the time involved and the daily ritual is, in my opinion, just as obsessive.
So what do you think: Is it okay to get breast implants simply for a boost in confidence? Is it okay to put on makeup for the same reason? Should surgical operations still be acceptable? Should we frown upon the use of makeup in a similar fashion? Is makeup more acceptable because it’s an older tradition than implants? Will society come to accept surgical operations as normal?
