I discovered the joy of this the last few days.
While you are reading this, and you might know me a little, you may know that I'm a big fan of make up. I love buying different sorts of brands and experiment with it. You can create so many different and stunning looks with make up, I find it amazing and fun to do! Really, you can't make me more happier than with makeup.
But as I discovered the last fews: It's ok to sometimes not wear make up and still feel good and look beautiful!
You just hop in the shower, put your clothes on, do your hair and that's it! And you know what? It felt soo damn good! Not having to think about stuff like: " Is my lipstick still on nice and neat or is my eyeliner still on my eyelids or somewhere more down south?". Sometimes these little things can be such a drag! So these past few days felt like a relieve.
I'm having a week of from work, and the last couple of days I was on a little holiday.
So that's why I came up with the idea of no make up.
Of course I sometimes have days here and there where I don't wear make up, but thats mostly on a Sunday, when I'm not going anywhere.
But the last couples of days me and my make up free face actually went places! How bout that!?
To the grocery store, to the beach, to the forest, to bars and restaurants...you name it!
Things I normally never do. Because there's this little voice in my head telling me that I look like shit without make up on.
But of course that's a little exagerrated, because everywhere I went no one cried out:" O my god, I think I just saw Gollum!"
So that's a good sign;)
But all kidding aside, treat yourself to some of these " Not A Drop Of Make Up" days.
It feels so good in the morning to be ready ten times sooner. To letting your skin breath for a couple of days. And not having to worry if your make up is still on true out the day.
As I said before, make up is fun, you can create amazing looks with it and it also comes in handy sometimes. But that being said, don't be afraid to let it all hang out some times. To take of that mask, and just be you. Because with or without make up, you're still the same amazing person, only in a slight different wrapper.
I felt a little insecure the first day, but now, a couple of days later I feel pretty good.
I'm even considering going to work sometimes with my none make up face:) Just to mix it up!
Enjoy your weekend!
