It’s no secret. I love makeup. I love buying new products and I love trying out new looks.
During the week I tend not to wear makeup because I know that by the end of the day there would be none left where it should be. Teaching is a stressful job.
I like wearing makeup on the weekend and on Fridays. Fridays because I usually have a little extra time to get ready in the morning.
During the week I just wear a little bit of concealer for dark circles and blemishes. That is, if I have time. I always wear moisturiser with SPF in it because I want to keep my skin nice and not skin damaged.
I’m not a morning person. I wake up as late as I possibly can and zoom around getting prepared for the day.
I’m normally running late. Last year I was working closer to home so I had more time to put makeup on. This year since I’m further away I don’t have time! I’ve actually noticed a huge difference. My skin is clearer, I’m getting less spots and my face feels cleaner. It’s probably because the pores aren’t getting covered up.
A few weeks ago I was unwell, so while I was off sick I wore nothing on my face. No moisturiser, no concealer. It was amazing! My skin was so clean and spot free! But in saying that moisturiser is always a product empty.
I think that people should go makeup free at least once or twice a week. Unless you’re like me and it’s makeup free 5 times a week and 2 days with makeup.
But then, at the end of the day there is nothing quite like a nice slick of lipstick. It really pulls together a look.
What are your thoughts on makeup free? Do you ever go makeup free? Or is makeup like your warpaint.
P.S. I know the photo up the top has nothing to do with makeup 😀
