How do you respond to criticism about your makeup? How do you handle comments from friends, family members, co-workers, or even strangers?
If it’s a closer friend or family member, I’ll try to politely remind them that it’s my face, I’ll do what I want, and it washes off – so if they don’t like today’s look, maybe they’ll like tomorrow’s, but I don’t wear makeup to impress them. If it’s more extended family or a stranger, I will just nod and move on more than anything else. If someone approached me in private or more one-on-one, rather than publicly, then I’d be more willing to try to educate/explain that putting makeup on is a creative outlet for me, that I enjoy it, and that it’s not about them.
