I get great pleasure from playing with my makeup while getting ready for work. Beauty, makeup and fashion are a passion and to some extent I will confide an obsession. Feelings of being so fixated on beauty everything made me contemplate and ponder that yes I am crazy about these pretty things and I adore them so much
BUT DO I NEED them?.
Answer is HELLO NO !
I do not DEPEND on them. It’s a WANT and not my NEED.
So to prove myself that I do not need makeup to survive and step outside my home and face the world and, to confirm my confidence as a woman who is extremely and completely comfortable in her own skin, I have declared Fridays for myself, as
NO MAKEUP FRIDAY starting today.
I have no makeup on. Not a speck of anything. I am all natural. It feels very normal because if you catch me off guard I rock my bare face, I will rock it all raw, sweaty and weird in the gym, in my house, to fam jams you get the point.
So I have observed today my colleagues are normal with me. They are staring and wondering but when they see nothing is wrong and I am my usual chirpy self, they do not focus on my plain face. I am taking advantage of being a plain Jane today and trimmed my extremely blaaaaaaah face with chandelier earings in one of my favourite colors turquoise and gold.
I have proven to myself that makeup is not my essential perquisite for me to live my life, it’s a hobby. It makes me very happy. Listen I can go to a wedding rocking my bare face if I wanted too, but you know color on my face makes me HAPPY and I will do what makes my heart smile.
This NO-MAKE UP FRIDAY is also to show my daughter that mommy does not NEED and she does not HAVE to put on makeup but she just really loves it and the most important message is that you need to LOVE YOURSELF. EMBRACE YOU because YOU are unique and YOU are beautiful. When you feel beautiful the world will see you as the most beautiful creation. (hehe girls I do feel pretty hideous today hehe). No but you get my point.
Makeup makes a woman look presentable and polished. I totally stand by my statement; however, I feel it’s a problem when you think you will die and cannot even get out of your home without foundation, lipstick or mascara.
We are all beautiful. Let us all embrace our prettiness and flaunt it proudly.
It feels so liberating. My pimples are breathing. Under eye circles are dark as ever. All natural and LOVING it and proudly ROCKING the birth face but just take away the freshness and add many years to it. Oh and I also have lots of freckles which are all dancing and saying hello to the world. My nails are with no polish too.
With this I will bid you all a great, safe, fun and a happy weekend.
Love n hugs
P.S Lovies, this is for me. In no way am I urging you all to go rock naked faces :). DO YOUR THING. Thanks for visiting. Leave me notes I love to read them and reply to them. Who doesn't.
