We can’t always be on our A-game. But on those days when it just comes together—maybe we nailed nailing 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).
Click through to see some of our favorite things to hear, and say! Since giving is better than receiving, or something like that.

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.
