women who ‘look about 12’ when they remove their makeup. FFS.
1) youthful appearance is neither an index of beauty nor a cardinal female virtue;
2) infantilisation, much?;
3) adult femininity is not a mask you paint on;
4) if what you mean is ‘appeared emotionally vulnerable’,pleeease at least make a token attempts to allow that quality to adults and to convey it in its adult complexity. ‘With her face bare of makeup, she looked about twelve’ and endless variations on the theme are just LAZY.
