Tag: How "fake" are you?

First of, I added these - " - around the word fake. Fake is a bad bad word, whether your fake or not depends on your person not whether you've got extensions or surgery or anything like that. I still think the tag is kind of fun, not to determine whether I'm "fake" or not but to go a little deeper into my relation to cosmetics.

Have you ever had cosmetic surgery?
Not purposely. I once broke my nose and they had to fix it, not for cosmetics reasons, more for being-able-to-breathe reasons ;) I do though want to get lasik eye surgery because I wear glasses and with my eye condition can't wear lenses. My eyes have always been my best feature and even though I don't have anything against the look of glasses, I'd prefer not to have them.

Do you use fake lashes?
If I could, I would, but I can't. I've practiced so much and I can't work those darn things ;)

Do you wear a weave or hair extension?

Would you consider plastic surgery?
Consider it yes definitely, but actually do it? I don't think so. I don't have the guts, and also I feel like surgery is "the easy way out", it's much more fun working with your "issues".

Could you live without makeup?
Yes I could LIVE, I'd still breathe, eat, sleep etc. But it would be sadder. I don't see makeup as some way to get prettified, I see my face as a canvas and my makeup as my paint. I used to paint alot when I was younger, and now I've just switched to makeup and nails.

Do you dye your hair?
Yes I do, very very much. I guess, it's kind of the same as doing face art, I like to dye my hair as kind of.. Hair-art I guess ;) I just love to have my hair a bright and happy, unconventional colour. My natural hair-colour is ash-blonde, and I love the blonde look on others, but on myself I think it looks a little bland.

So this is me, back in the day. It also happens to be my natural hair-colour, ashy blonde.

The last time I was "blonde". It was because everytime  I had dyed my hair red, it has gone darker and darker and then dying it the dark purple I chose to bleach it so that I could dye it bright red again. It turned out orange, sad because I was excited to see how platinum blonde would look like on me ;)
Purple.. Why? Because I can. It was so rad, seriously considering to dye it purple again, just a little too dark in my opinion.
Generally I have all different versions of washed out red. Red just won't stay on my hair, always turns out rust-red. 
This is from today, and yesterday I dyed my hair so this is exactly as I'd like it to look - all the time. It just doesn't.
Do you use a sunbed?
WAAAAAH NO! I'm born pale, always have been pale, always will be pale and will die pale. If I as much show my face to the sun for three seconds I get sunburned, not TANNED but BURNED! Also I have this (ir)rational fear of skin cancer...

Do you use selftanners?
WAAAAAH no! I'm born pale, alwa.... - You know the deal. I DO, have to admit, sometimes help my forearms a little on the sometimes with my Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moistureizer in fair to medium because my forearms seem to be the only thing on my body that can tan.

Do you have tattoos?
Nope, but I'm definitely getting one. What of? No idea yet, but my mind is set on it! In Denmark you have to be eighteen to get a tattoo and I see all my friends turning eighteen rushing out to get tattoos and that makes me slow down, I don't want to like anyone else and just do it because I can or to rebel, I want to do it because I genuinely WANT that image printed on my body forever.
One thing that I am pretty certain of getting tattooed (when the time comes) is the names of my future children.

In conclusion I just want to say that I don't think anybody who has tattoos or extension or use tanning bed, get plastic surgery etc is fake. I believe that "fake" people are people who try to disguise their true personalities, not their looks.
