“Today, instead of making up my face, I made up my mind and I decided to break up with my makeup.”
I have never been big on wearing a lot of makeup in fact I have never applied foundation to my face, but when I want to feel “put together” I definitely do conceal the circles under my eyes. I also have a go to look that helps me feel “more beautiful.” I have spent my spring break doing a lot of spring cleaning and a few days ago I wrote about makeup shelf life.
Lately I have been feeling very judgmental of myself and have caught myself being afraid of aging. Before long I will be 30 and that is a scary thought. I am happy with my life, but sometimes I worry that I have not accomplished enough yet…
So today I decided that I am breaking up with my makeup for at least 30 days. This is also good because I am starting school next week and that will take some steps out of my morning routine and will hopefully save me some time (and money).
I want to learn to love and accept myself the way I am. I also think it will be a good chance to give my skin a break and to heal.
Additionally, I will be more likely to be more health conscious and careful about the foods and substances that I put into my body.
This journey is a little scary, but I am ready to go for it.
- I will still wash, tone, and moisturize like always.
- No concealer, eyeshadow, blush, bronzer, and lipstick.
- I may wear lipgloss every now and then if I am feeling a little down. That will be my exception.
- I will NOT buy any makeup during this breakup.
My boyfriend has always told me that I am beautiful without makeup and that I don’t ever need it (blush), but I could never believe him before. He even told me a few days ago.
I am a shorty (almost 5 feet tall) and I always thought that I needed high heels and makeup to be beautiful. I feel blessed to be with a man who tells me I am beautiful without all of that.
Now I just need to see it for myself. So here goes!
