It makes me happy when people compliment me on it (duh), but sometimes people are weird about it. Here are some of the weirdest reactions I've gotten to my eyeshadow:
- "How do you do that?" Okay, I understand this question because maybe the person genuinely wants to try it herself, but how do you expect me to answer it? Especially if you're asking me at work, I don't know how you want me to respond. Like, do you want me to stop ringing you up and show you how to do it? This is SUCH an awkward question.
- "That's interesting." Uh, thanks? This is an insult and it's not even disguised as a compliment. And again, just like with number one, I don't know how to answer!
- "That's very trendy. Did you start that?" I've only gotten this once, but I thought it was worth mentioning because it's so dumb. So first, the guy says, "That's very trendy." And I was like, "Yeah, it's kind of popular right now." And then he says, "Did you start that trend?" Um.....yeah. I did.
