I'm a Trainwreck in the Morning

The other day I was having a conversation with a co-worker who stated that she wears makeup everyday because "you don't want to see me without my makeup!" That made me realize that I wear makeup everyday too. But for the same reason?? I'm not sure.

I'd like to think that I wear makeup because I'm a product junkie and I LOVE makeup/creams/gels etc. and not necause I dont want people to see my naked face.
Sure I go naked on the weekends when I run errands, but if I'm going to work, meeting friends for lunch, going to the movies, or even the mall, best believe I have something on my face.

I don't know why this is disturbing me. Am I making a mountain out of a molehill???

In any event, I've decided to go naked more often. Even at work. Dammit I like myself and I like my skin - even those crazy yellow patches above my cheeks (what the hell are those???) and that pimple on my chin!


  1. LoL. We have to be comfortable in our own skin despite the flaws. There was a time that you could not catch me without makeup, but now, I only wear it when necessary. That's why skincare is very important.


  2. You look great without makeup. I was the same way for a while, although i cherish sleep so much that i'd skip makeup at work, but when going out with friends it was a different story.

  3. I have the same situtation. I swear I won't leave the house with out something on my face. Then something turns into a full out 40 minute makeup look. I look fine without makeup but its just I've gotten so used to my face with it that I feel horrible without it. I keep saying that I'm going to have at least 1 makeup-less day, but I doubt it. Maybe this winter I'll try it out. I think I'm kidding myself now. Okay so I"ll start small...4 hours with no makeup (on a Sunday)

  4. i go makeup-less quite often. unfort i don't like myself too much without some makeup, but i have priorities and having mascara covered lashes just doesn't make the list sometimes =p
