Today I decided to push myself a little on the old make up front.
I have previously done a post called “Bare Faced Cheek” where I was pushing the boundaries of what amount or lack thereof, makeup I was happy wearing in front of a camera. Actually going out in public like that is a further step forward.
Now I am not going to say to you that I am suddenly going to stop wearing makeup. I’m not. I love it and I love how it can transform your face depending on what look you are going for. But I would also like to feel comfortable going to work with no makeup on.
Especially on those mornings when you are running on slow speed and putting on makeup is the thing that will make you miss your bus or make you late for work. It isn't that important. Yet I can't count the number of times I have left the house late because I have needed to "make myself presentable".
So here I am at work, no makeup, shiny nose, no eyeliner. The world did not end. People didn't draw back in horror. The mirror didn't crack. I look fine.
Whilst makeup is still something I choose to wear on a daily basis, I now know that I can live without it too. Another step in being comfortable in your own skin.
