It’s 1:30 as I sit to write on this Wednesday afternoon. I just got home from the gym and I’ve yet to shower today. And – my husband is out-of-town.
By the time I do shower, it will be an hour or so before my kids get home from school and we have no real plans this afternoon to go anywhere.
So my question is – do I put on my makeup?
Doing my hair is a non-question. I have curly hair and I have to put moosse in it or it turns into all curly and Medusa like. Plus, I just let it air dry. It’s pretty low maintenance that way.
But my makeup is another story. I mean, no one is really going to see me – well except my kids.
I don’t wear a ton of makeup – but I do use it to balance out the skin tones and then there is eyeliner and blush…..
To be honest, I hate walking past a mirror when I have no makeup on. I feel – yucky and unfinished. I typically wear makeup everyday. I also typically touch it up in the afternoons or if I’m headed out somewhere.
I follow this blog called Baby Sideburns. She is hilarious but sometimes she writes a serious piece. The other day she wrote about going makeup free for a week to show her daughter that beauty comes from the inside. She doesn’t want to instill in her daughter at such a young age the need for beauty enhancements.
What about you – do you wear makeup everyday? Even if you put it on late in the afternoon and you have no plans to go anywhere and your husband is out-of-town?
Do I need to rethink this?
