Got a make-up gift, though I don't wear make-up: what to think of this?
It is from my mother, I got some sort of make-up kit as a gift. I'm 22 and I never wear make-up. This certainly sounds stupid but it was enough to... Show More
Most Helpful Opinion
she isn't doing it to bash you, she is trying to help, even the most beautiful girls look better with some makeup. past college or even high school, not wearing makeup is IMO the face equivalent of going outside in pajamas.

If it wasn't from your mother, I'm sure it would mean nothing.
But parents give things to kids they think they 'could use' sometimes.
Yes, she's trying to tell you to put some make-up on sometimes.
As you grow older, women start to become a little more sophisticated into how they dress (or well, at least in my opinion, they should). Adding a little makeup, here and there, now and then...will improve your chances of meeting a man. Men don't wear makeup, so it makes you look too manly, when you don't...Men typically don't want manly looking women
She is trying to help you, she isn't saying you aren't good enough as you are. I'd guess she doesn't want you to be disadvantaged compared to other women based on you not wearing make up. Well applied make up will make any girl look more attractive.
Having said that its great that you are willing to go against the pressure from society and your mother and do what you want to do, most people aren't capable of that.
You're right about what you think, it's pretty obvious, especially given that last comment of hers.

Parents want the best for their children.your mom is trying to tell you that you'd look better with some makeup. What's confusing about that? It akes everyone look better and more put together. Maybe not everyday, but you should at least put in effort sometimes or you'll come off as lazy
its a nice gift that most girls would like it doesn't mean the person that gave it to you think you look dull
Does she wear makeup?
If so, she probably just wants you to be like her, although it maybe subconscious, she may want to "bond" with you over makeup and put it on you, etc. It's every mother's dream to make their little girl into a princess :) I think she's only trying to help, and trying to show that she loves you.
hope it helped :)x
Each mother wants her daughter to look best. To keep your mom's wishes I think you should adjust and pt some make up
