She made me think about why I wear the make up I do. When I was in my teens I had terrible skin and it was horrible! But I went to my GP who put me on antibiotics and thankfully my skin cleared up. Nowadays I still get the odd break out but nothing too major. I only feel self conscience when I get spots and I think 'oooh better cover that bad boy up with concealer'.
However, I am quite happy to go out shopping without a scrap of make up on, other times I will put some mascara on just to make me look more awake and that will be it. I hardly ever wear a full face of foundation concealer powder just to go to the shops. In fact the only time I will do this is when I go on a night out, or if I have a meeting at work, just to look more polished.
Nicoletta asked on her post that if anyone wanted to publish a pic of themselves without wearing makeup to do so. Here are my pics taken not so long ago......
The morning after the night before a birthday party, in my PJ's and dressing gown going to Maccy D's to soak up the booze! hmmmm treat!
Also my friend Morgs is doing the driving, I could hardly keep my eyes open, but a strawberry milkshake, quarter pounder cheeseburger and large fries sorted me out :-)
This evening I went out for a meal and drinks with some work friends, I have just taken my make up off and this is the result.... I look washed out and pale with dark circles but hey ho, what ya gonna do? It doesn't bother me that much, I just think I look 'bla'.
Anyways, I don't mind going out without make up, I wear my bright eye shadows because I love the colours, but not because I need to, it is because I want to :-)
How do you feel? Do you have to wear a full face to go out? or are you happy to not wear anything some days?
