Band 6,5 Answer by IELTS test taker
Last term one tutor from the Department of Arts delivered a speech on campus; what differed it from other speeches or lectures was that the speaker was a man and the theme of that speech was ‘power of makeup’. I was numb with shock when I saw the poster; a man with exaggerated blue eye shadow and he looked quite confident.
On the day of this special speech, the hall was packed out. I even noticed that almost half of the audiences were boys. When the tutor stood on the stage, all of US were surprised since he just wore makeup on half of his face. He asked US how did he look and explained why. As a teacher who teaches painting he often hears that some girls in his department feel ashamed tc say they love makeup for the reason that others may say they wear makeup either they want to look good for boys or the) just feel insecure. At the same time someone who don’t understand them will laugh in their faces. I realized that he delivered this speech just in order to express his thoughts that doing makeup was totally fine as long as it could make you feel better and confident.
What’s more, he invited some students to the stage and let them to recognize some cosmetics. All the people in the hall laughed because those boys made lots of mistakes for knowing nothing about that foundation, eye shadow and various lipsticks.
I considered it as the most interesting speech I ever listened to because of the unique theme and the courage I learnt front the teacher. No doubt to say I won’t be too surprised to see some boys with makeup in our school; it’s just a way to show one’s attitudes towards life and we have the every right to do the things we like in an proper way.
