On the weekends, I typically go without wearing any make-up whatsoever and never think twice about it. I’m also not usually coming face-to-face with many people that I know besides my family.
During the work week, I spend my time in a lot of meetings. That means I am very much face-to-face with a lot of different people. Because of this, I haven’t brought myself to go without any make-up during the work week.
That being said, I am very much a naturalist. I don’t even fix my hair as you can see by this post from a couple of weeks ago. When I do wear make-up it’s usually only on my eyes. Wearing eye make-up takes you from a sleepy, just out of bed look to a polished, wide awake and ready to take on the day look.
I still struggle from time to time with not “feeling” pretty and not liking myself. But I find that age and maturity have made me more accepting of myself and my natural beauty. As you age, you go through many different seasons and phases. The coolest thing I am finding is that the older I get, not only am I more accepting of myself, but I’m finding that I really like who I am, inside and out.
