No Makeup Challenge
For the last 9 years I have faithfully worn makeup. It was an extension of myself. I wouldn't dream of leaving the house without mascara or concealer, yet since this year has began... I some how have managed to stop wearing makeup.
Now this was not on purpose....but just sort of happened?
I realized I had gone a few days without makeup and decided to put some on and I hated the results. What was happening to me? For the first time I understood why most men prefer women not to wear makeup and was able to appreciate my beauty as it is.
I was able to accept my flawed face and feel confident to show those flaws to the world. How liberating not wearing makeup has been? It's not makeup that makes me beautiful... It's me. But avid makeup wearers can succumb to the lie that without makeup they aren't pretty.
The other day my eye was itchy... So I was carefully rubbing it...as u don't want to mess with the mascara and then it dawned on me...I have no mascara on....I was able to rub away!
Getting ready for work, church and outings are so much easier and faster. One less thing to go wrong.
So I challenge you sisters who swear up and down they can't survive without makeup... go a week in your own skin! You may be amazed in the beauty you find!
Taking off the makeup gave me a chance to see who I really am...and me thankful and happy with that. Am I saying I will never wear makeup again? Maybe not but I am enjoying the season!
Comment if you are brave enough to do the challenge!! :)
