Makeup vs Natural

Sometimes I put on makeup and wonder if it's worth the trouble. I don't know about any of you, but sometimes I feel like I take time and apply it just to turn around and remove it. A little now known guilty secret is... It's one of the first things I do when I get home from my eventful days (along with finding my very old huge sweats)! I wish I could say that when Jake gets home from work, I'm in my short skirt, hooker heels, my hair did, face on, and in an apron cooking dinner. I wish I could be one of those women:) Poor Jake!
So yesterday when I was removing my eye make up, I looked in the mirror and saw one side had make-up on and the other didn't. I thought I better compare the fake me vs the real me. I truthfully was hoping to have hard evidence that the real me was not that much different.... however.....




THIS WAS A HUGE WAKE-UP CALL! Wow, thank the good Lord for putting a little concealer and foundation (for mothers with dark circles), bronzer (fake my tan a bit), beautiful shades of eye shadow, eyeliner, and mascara (to help open up small eyes) on this earth!!


Now don't think I won't rock the old natural look every so often. I can appreciate any woman that can go out and show the real person she is without it, but this was good for me to admit and see for myself. I think I got away with no make-up for such a long time, but now my complexion really has changed with age and kids.. wrinkles and fine lines are starting to welcome themselves to my face, along with the above mentioned dark circles, my lovely moles and freckles, and last but not least my uneven color tone. This is just the beginning of the end for the face I ONCE had! Why didn't I appreciate it when I had it???

This is hilarious because unlike most women you actually still look like yourself and beautiful WITHOUT the makeup. I had to actually look CLOSE to see the difference on each side. Come to my house and I'll show you the real difference..lol ;)

Thank you guys! haha.. I know that EVERYONE at one time or another feel these things, which is why I feel to voice them. Just my way of handling things... Who wants to read the same old blogs and stories of surface? Why not all be honest? Makes it easier to not be perfect!
