If you’re a regular reader of this blog you know that I don’t post beauty or makeup that often. In fact, I think the last time I touched on makeup was over a year ago. I have a beauty category on the blog but honestly I don’t even know why I have it! Oops…
I don’t really know where my distaste for makeup comes from, but for me I don’t enjoy wearing it. I didn’t start wearing makeup daily until my junior year in high school. Even then I didn’t wear much makeup. Maybe just a swipe of mascara and that’s it? I don’t remember exactly but it was similar to that.
That’s because my routine is similar to that now. I wear mascara, eye shadow, and a little eyeliner for my day to day look. I wear lipstick often and sometimes concealer to cover up a zit here and there. But that’s about it! For me I’ve just never wanted or needed to wear anything else.
I do realize that this is because I got extremely lucky with my skin because it’s clear for the most part and I have good coloring. Ok I get that. But I also don’t feel comfortable with foundation on my face. It’s like a layer of itchy, sticky skin that get all over everything.
Props to the ladies that can wear that every day without fail, but it’s not for me y’all. It just doesn’t feel like me and I want to be true to myself whenever I can. That’s all anyone wants isn’t it? But I like to feel comfortable and I’m most comfortable when I wear the amount of makeup I want. And that requires no foundation, concealer, or contour.
For me I also don’t feel weird not wearing makeup. There are times when I’m not wearing makeup at all! To be honest I didn’t wear makeup yesterday or today and I don’t feel any different. I feel the same with or without it! So why should I put all that gunk on my face?
The one piece of makeup that I love is lipstick. Give me a swipe of mascara and lip color and I’m good to go. To me that’s the ultimate piece of makeup. I don’t wear it every day but I do love wearing it when I can or feel like it. Of course, it also depends on the outfit I’m wearing!
I’d love to hear your thoughts! I know that makeup is a big thing and for many ladies and there’s a vloggers that make a killing off of makeup videos. Which is so, so cool! However, what’s your stance on makeup? Do you always have to have a full face? Or do you wear as little makeup as possible?
