I saw this posted in a makeup group I’m a part of on facebook and it got me to thinking…why do I wear makeup? Or better yet why would I not leave my house not wearing it? For me it’s not about not liking the way I look without it, simply I just like the way I look with it! And I don’t see the problem! People sometimes call women who wear makeup insecure, or that we’re trying to be someone else. But what’s wrong with just enhancing what you have?
I’ve been wearing makeup daily since high school. I was in a program called Upward Bound. I met my then best friend who taught me how to wear mascara and we were the ultimate girly-girl besties!
Since then I’ve added much more to my daily makeup routine but I can’t imagine life without it! I love to experiment with colors on my eyelids and lips, and I love trying new mascara to attempt va va voom lashes! I also have raccoon underwhelming circles no matter how much I sleep! So, I’d rather not walk around looking like the walking dead when there’s a solution!
I see nothing wrong with putting your best face forward when you step out the door! I applaud women who don’t wear makeup but I also sometimes find myself looking at them and in my head going down a list of products that would look fab on them! I say, life is short, wear the makeup and look your best! Not for anyone else but for you!
Years ago, I’d never imagine sharing a make up free pic with the world, but I’m comfortable in my own skin and embrace all my flaws so here goes my make up free face!
