For as long as I can remember, I've been a t-shirt and jeans kinda gal. I feel my most comfortable in them, not too showy or flashy, can dress it up a little with heels and a fancy necklace, or work out in the yard with sneakers and cut offs. It's been my thing. But the world says I should improve my style. The world says I should wear a dress. The world says I should wear lipstick. But I say, I'll do what "I" want. If I want to wear jeans and a t-shirt all day every day, I will. If I want to wear a skirt and t-shirt with sneakers, I will. If I want to dress up for a night out, I will. If I want to wear lipstick, well, that will just never happen, be assured! Here's the thing. I don't need anyone but ME to tell me what I should do. I don't need anyone but ME to tell me how to dress in the morning, or how do do my hair, or heaven help me, how to do my eyebrows! I'm a woman who has lived on this earth for nearly 50 years, and I'm not afraid to say it. I've raised a daughter. I've had ups and downs. I've had crazy and amazing life experiences. I've loved and been loved. I've felt pain and caused others pain. I've felt comforted and hopefully have been a comforter. Point is, I've LIVED. These experiences have shaped and formed me. And I'm not finished yet! In the words of this oh, so amazing, graphic tee, Own Your Style! Figure out who you are and BE! Don't let the world tell you otherwise. Find your style and be confident in it! Find your cause and fight for it! Find your passion and create it! YOU matter. YOU are amazing. YOU can conquer that goal. YOU can feel confident in your own skin. YOU can do hard things. YOU can do ALL the things! You got this!! #LivingMyWhy #BecauseICan #LoveWhatIDo #LoveWhoIAm #LuLaRoeRetailer #LuLaRoeForLife #FlagstaffFashion #LuLaRoeArizona #LuLaRoeLiv #OwnYourStyle #YouAreAmazing #YouGotThis

As one of the stars of TLC’s Sister Wives, Brown, 49, has been in the spotlight for roughly a decade. Over that time, she’s heard from plenty of critics who don’t like the way she dresses or how she styles her hair or does her makeup. 

Recently, a commenter on her Instagram told Brown she needed to learn the “proper” way to apply her makeup. “You will look more attractive and feel better about everything,” the person wrote. Another said her eyebrows needed “help.”

Brown didn’t let those negative comments get her down, though. “I feel great about myself but thanks anyway!” she responded to one person who didn’t like her makeup.  

In the past, Brown has also defended her outfits from critics who don’t like her shoes or the way she mixes patterns.

The ‘Sister Wives’ star says she doesn’t need people to tell her how to live her life
