About 2 months ago, I stopped wearing makeup. This is something I had thought long about doing, but first I wanted to save out my eyebrows. Unfortunately, they grew out very slow so I decided to try it anyway.
The first time I wore makeup I was 16. I used to smear eyeliner under the eyes because I thought it was more gothic than being completely without makeup. Since then I've honestly only used makeup because I have felt pressured, I never liked to wear makeup or been particularly good at doing it nicely. So it has been more a feeling that since I am a woman, I HAVE TO wear makeup.
So in the beginning when I stopped using it, I was afraid that people would think I was unkempt. But then I thought, guys have no makeup, and do I think they all look ugly? No.
Should it not be okay for women then to also be without makeup. Yeees! :D
I can scratch my eyes whenever I want and don't need to worry about mascara in my whole face if it's raining.
And to be completely honest I don't think I look worse on the picture to the right than to the left.
I see makeup as an art, and I think it's fun to experiment with it on photosessions. But in everyday life, I feel no need to wear it anymore. And it feels really good (and cheap) ;D to have come to this realization.
