We can't always be on our A-game. But on those days when it just comes together-maybe we nailed the perfect cat eye or woke up to a particularly good hair day-getting beauty compliments out of the blue are basically the best thing ever.
Just for funsies, we compiled a list of our favorite beauty compliments to receive-especially when coming from a stranger on the street (assuming not as a creepy pickup line).В
Click through to see some of our favorite things to hear, and say! Since giving is better than receiving, or something like that.
"Your hair color is amazing."
The only thing better than being asked where you get your hair colored (flattery at its finest) is the assumption that it's natural.В
ВЂњYour lips are so full and luscious.вЂќ
Having plush lips is a beauty holy grail.
ВЂњYou have the prettiest eyes.вЂќ
Maybe it's the eye-opening liner tricks you've picked up along the way, maybe you're a master highlighter, or maybe you were just #blessed with bright eyes, but they don't call them the windows to our souls for nothing.В
"You have the best cheekbones.вЂќ
Oh these old things? I've just been practicing my contouring.В
ВЂњYou have the longest eyelashes.вЂќ
Thanks, I was born that way. Just kidding they're extensions/falsies/mascara, but yay!В
ВЂњYou look amazing - did you just get back from vacation?вЂќ
Well-rested, radiant, fresh-faced, tanвЂ¦ it's a pretty encompassing beauty compliment to be asked if you were on vacation, especially if, in fact, you were not.В
ВЂњYou have the prettiest skin. How do you get it to glow like that?вЂќ
I woke up like this! Obviously.В
ВЂњYour skin is so soft and smooth.вЂќ
Ideally this one is coming from someone you knowвЂ¦
"I wish I had your hair.вЂќ
It's thick, voluminous, and voluptuous - what more could you want?
ВЂњHow do you do your makeup like that?вЂќ
It's always a nice and validating feeling to be told your makeup looks pro. Sure, it's great when your bare, no-makeup mug warrants a compliment, but when you put in effort to beautify your face and someone is actually jealous of your skills? Keep doing whatever it is that you're doing, girl.
