【線上學英文】女孩們,試過一週素顏嗎? What It’s Like To Stop Wearing Makeup

陌生人對你的第一印象取決於外貌,雖然聽起來很現實,但這無疑是千真萬確的事實 ;

而為了讓他人對自己的印象加分,化妝成了許多人出門前的必備工作,

脂粉未施更讓他們覺得渾身不自在。


 

  • 「I think there are a lot of assumptions about people who wear make-up.

That they are insecure, or self-conscious, or vain. 」

化妝的理由千百種,安全感、自尊心、虛榮。

  • Assumption:假設
  • self-conscious : 自我意識、自覺
  • vain:虛榮

  • 「I just wanted to know if my confidence would stay the same without it.」

當我沒化妝時,還能保持同樣自信嗎?

而如果一位帶妝7年的女孩挑戰一週不上妝,會是怎樣的情況呢?一起看下去吧。

  • First off:馬上、立刻

  • 「I can’t tell you how many selfies I took until I lent on that one to post on Instagram.」

拍了很多張自拍照,才勉強選一張能上傳到Instagram

  • selfie:自拍照

  •  「On day 3, I got a pimple. And when I get a pimple, I covered that shit up with foundation and concealer.」

第三天時,我長了痘痘,我通常會用粉底和遮瑕膏蓋掉可惡的痘子

  • pimple:青春痘
  • foundation :基礎、打底、粉底
  • concealer:遮瑕產品
  • whimper:碎唸、低語
  • mean:過分、嚴苛

  • 「I really hate having to say, that it took a compliment from my boyfriend to make me feel okay about myself. “Maybe you shouldn’t wear make-up every day.”」

不得不承認 男友之後說的話稍稍撫慰了我受創的自尊,「妳可以考慮停止化妝 妳不化更好看」

  • compliment:安慰、安撫
  • freckle:雀斑、斑點
  • unique part:獨特特色、獨特特徵
  • subjective:主觀、個人的
  • present:(adj.)現在的、出席

(v.)表現、行為、出現、贈予

  • treat:對待

「Not wearing make-up takes a lot of courage,and I am so much more comfortable not wearing it now.」素顏需要很大的勇氣,而我已經克服它了。

可見素顏並不是一件多恐怖的事,只要突破一開始的不習慣,

之後也會覺得未上妝的面容也很有特色,甚至愛上沒上妝的自然感呢!
