Every eid when I was a kid my little sister would put that on, my mom would help her, it'd take so long and she would have to be all careful for a bit after applying it or it'd mess up. I would ball, I still ball. That stuff is hard to do and take patience.
You're from Qatar, right? Ask the people around you - very different connotation than around here. Around here people assume "hippy" or "white girl trying to be 'cultural'." But from what I know of the Arab and "Muslim world," unless it's a wedding or Eid (or maybe a party), yes, I imagine it looks a little weird.
