I wanted to take a moment to talk to you all about being make up free. I've said it once, and I will say it again: make up doesn't make you prettier. Now, it might make you feel prettier, or feel sexier and that is great--whatever makes you FEEL good.
Lately? I've been going without make up a lot lately and really feeling great about it. I'm 27 years old, and I love the way I look, naturally. I have been celebrating that and I want to help spread it. It's not that I don't have imperfections--I sure have. But I am not dwelling on them, and I am learning to see my beauty through it all.
Now, I know that there are some people who wouldn't even consider going out of their houses without make up. We ladies have a way of using our make up like a proverbial shield, but what are we really hiding? For me, it's usually dark spots and pimples...or, if I am going a bit deeper than the surface, I wear make up because I want to look like I am well put together.
What I have noticed though, is that there are lots of times when my husband compliments me. I can count the number of times in the past that he has complimented my make up...but I couldn't begin to count the number of times that he has complimented me for my sexy body, for a great outfit, or great hair because they are too numerous. Men like women--unfiltered. They love us just how we are (make up or no make up).
