Do you think you are prettier now or when you were in high school?

I think I'm prettier NOW, but I had the potential to be prettier THEN than I do now but I didn't take advantage of it. My face was more youthful, slender and didn't have bags. BUT I had a bland look, a boring face, long straight hair and not a very animated face. I never smiled. That's why I think I look prettier now, because I smile more. I look more womanly, animated and I don't keep my hair in my face..even though my face is fatter, I do have some bags under my eyes etc..

  • Then. I look almost the same, but you didn't see the circles under my eyes, I actually had time to do stuff with my hair/makeup, and I was way less stressed (I can see it showing on my face sometimes). I was also much thinner and althletic.

  • I pretty much look the same except I know how to do my make up now and how to dress myself, so I think I'm prettier now. However, I don't like the line that is forming on my forehead!
