Like I said, I really like makeup. I like watching videos of makeup tutorials to try out on myself, and then coming up with my own creations. I even like the act of putting on makeup because it's fun to see the transformation. But seriously - I am getting too involved with it. It is getting to the point where I can barely go a day without eyeshadow and the whole nine yards or else I feel kind of self-conscious. So I've decided to give myself a challenge - I'm going to stop wearing makeup until I feel comfortable enough to go places without it on and feel confident in my natural, God-given beauty. Now I'm not saying I'm going to go cold turkey. For right now, I'm just not going to wear makeup at home but maybe add some eyeliner/mascara when I go out. But eventually, I'm going to be able to wear no makeup and feel just as good about myself as if I had it on. I know a lot of girls who don't wear makeup, actually. In fact, I didn't wear much myself until last year (when I discovered eyeliner to completely surround my eyes) and this summer (when I started using eyeshadow). So it's not like it's alien to me. It's just...I need a break. Everything is good in moderation, and I am becoming a makeup glutton.
Do you feel confident without makeup?
