natural beauty

Yesterday I had a guy I work with tell me I "looked different".
Our conversation went a bit like this:
Me: "well, i've been sick so maybe i just look ill."
Guy: "no, do you usually wear makeup?"
Me: I laughed and said, "yup, but with my pink eye i am not wearing any."
Guy: "oh, well you look a lot different."

NOT even 10 minutes later a woman i work with told me I looked better.
Me: "thank you. I'm not wearing any make up so i take that as a good compliment."
Woman: "many women have natural beauty and i think you look pretty without makeup."

So many people have different opinions. I knew this little fact but it struck me hard yesterday. The days where I feel ugly and down someone else (besides my amazing husband) thinks I'm beautiful!

Isn't that a little comforting to know?
