Last day of 30 day NO makeup Challenge

20140217-003418.jpg

As the days come to the end of the 30 day no makeup challenge I am left reflecting on all it has done. To be honest I am not dying to go out and wear makeup. Hell, I’m lucky if I get to go out of the house I’m chronically ill here! But, as I think about wearing light makeup, my mind has shifted. I am a bit shocked I am thinking of words like “accentuate, enhance, highlight” instead of “coverup, fix, hide”!! It was a sort of unconscious thinking and then I sort of stopped and just blinked. I am excited to add lipstick to highlight my lips, which I now like (who knew?!) Now that I have learned about my face (partly by watching my vlogs being confronted with naked Emily face!) I appreciate my skin and taking care of it. I do feel like I glow even if it’s the inside I can say I don’t NEED makeup to feel pretty. I have connected with myself mostly. Being chronically I’ll seems to take over and my face a road map of symptoms. Bags from insomnia, wrinkles from stress, rash from allergies, acne from poor hygiene, dark circles from asthma and so on. But now I feel my face is just me and I can show me. Sure, again gonna keep it real, I am very excited to wear makeup, do tutorials on my vlog and just have my late night hobby back, but it did it. I walked out the door and videotaped my clean God given face for 30 days. I’m proud of myself guys! Like, legit proud! I have heard from so many women, “I could never walk out of the house without makeup, or, I would scare people without my makeup.” I wish I had asked my friends to do this challenge maybe when I do it again but after all the complaining it honestly has been an amazing fast I would recommend to others. I am greater than makeup. My beauty does not come from a bottle but naturally. My face is not symptoms it’s part of my beauty as a person. Fight on!
Again this is my friend Emilee’s blog she expresses her experience of no makeup and natural hair!

    That’s great that you were able to accomplish the 30 day no makeup challenge! 😀 Wouldn’t be much of a challenge for me since I’m too lazy to wear makeup, lol! 😉
