For the last month I have been wearing “foundation” (or people in the US might call this “base”) makeup, for the first time in my life. I don’t know why, maybe because I’ve started working in the club or maybe I was feeling insecure… I don’t know, but for the first time I felt like I needed to put that goo on my face :( Yesterday I was having one of those days where you feel *GORGEOUS* and I realised I forgot to put any on, and I attribute the way I was feeling directly to the fact that I wasn’t painting my face with that awful brown stuff. So I’m back to how I was, and a little wiser.
That makup is safely out with the trash and I’m feeling really good about it. I feel a million times more free, natural and attractive, and I can’t believe I gave in to something I have always personally been against. I thought it was making me look better but in actuality it made my skin greasy and dull, and was making me constantly conscious of how my face looks and having to add more makeup to cover more up…. Even though I already have good skin! For me, I always look and feel better with less makeup on (as do most women) and I’m glad I’ve reminded myself of this.
Never again will I be a slave to the beauty industry!!!
