My mother doesn't like it when I do things like wear make-up and skirts because she is self-conscious of our age gap (she's 55, I'm 18). She has gotten wrinkles in her 50s and blames me for 'aging her.' She winds herself up over it out of nowhere most days and insults me, calling me a sl*t and yells around for at least an hour. I've endured this for years and am used to it. My dad thinks she's jealous of my youth.
Today I tried out false eyelashes. My mum complained about me using them, also saying that when she was young girls didn't even wear mascara. Well, times have changed. Just look around. Girls who are way too young for it are wearing make-up, sadly, yes, but I'm 18 for crying out loud.
My dad openly said 'It looks so fake and cheap. Only the tarts of today wear them.'
Oh that's funny, I didn't know virgins could be tarts.
He is very blunt and outspoken. I hate it!
Are they really that bad?
I'm leaving home in a few days for university and my hall of residence (college dorm).
Would it be not good to wear them there or something if they look that bad?
I am a shy person but over the years I've been telling myself not to care what other people think of me, but it doesn't help when my father makes those kind of comments. He says 'I'll give my opinion if I want to whether you like it or not.'
What do you think?

I think that your parents only want the best for you, but that doesn't mean that they're right. (Your dad will probably think that everything that makes you look hot is slutty, but that's because you're his little girl. I usually take it as a compliment when my dad wants me to switch outfit, ha ha ;) Ask your girlfriends and your own common sense for what you should or shouldn't wear. Also when you get to uni you'll probably notice that there are lots of different styles and personalities there, you'll find a lot of girls without make-up, but you'll also find those who doesn't show themselves without a fully painted face. You having false eye lashes will not be scandalous ^^3
