Break Up with your makeup

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great day so far. Today we are taking a break from fashion and switching over to talk about skin and makeup. An interesting question to ask yourself is, "why do we wear makeup?" Some wear it to even out skin tone, coverup acne, hide dark circles, reduce redness, for special occasions, to express ourselves and be creative; the list goes on and on. Another interesting and personal question to ask yourself is, "when was the last time you went an entire day without makeup?" If I was asked this question a few years ago, I would have a hard time answering because makeup was apart of my daily routine, like brushing my teeth and taking a shower. As I have gotten older, more confident, and comfortable in my own skin, I have been wearing less and less makeup to where most days I wear little to no makeup. 

I encourage you to start to accept your imperfections and realize that there is no need to cover them up. No one is perfect and accepting your unique features will make you amazingly different and special! And that positive outlook will spillover to many other parts of your life! Such as work, school, social life, family. etc. Plus, this is a step towards good health practices because a makeup free day allows your skin to breath. It also opens up time in your morning routine for a quick workout, cooking breakfast, etc. Breaking up with your makeup is definitely a win win situation!
