Why I Like ‘Not’ Wearing Makeup

In my last post I shared with you a couple reasons as to why I like wearing makeup so in this post I’ll be doing the opposite, why I like ‘not’ wearing makeup.  😉  I hope that wasn’t too confusing, lol.  Anyways here are a few of my reasons…

1. Lipstick sure is fun but when I wear it several days in a row, more times than not, it chaps my lips and I really don’t liked chapped lips as I’m sure many of you can agree.

2. I am a teenager and just like most teenagers I struggle with acne.  Generally speaking makeup can clog your pores, which can cause more acne and I don’t want that.  This can be hard at times since one part of me wants to cover it up but the other part of me knows that it’s best I don’t.

3. My next reason is because I want to embrace my natural beauty.  This kind of goes hand in hand with my second reason too, as why should I be embarrassed about my flaws.  Check out my post The True Definition of Beauty for more detail on this.

  1. Women who are kind and gentle have a glow about them that comes from inside and is radiated outward from the light in their eyes and smile. When they walk into a room they literally light it up. Which continues as they age and their outward beauty fades.

    On the other hand women who lack this inner beauty are like black holes that suck out the enegry of those around them leaving darkness and despair in their wake. And their appearance tends to become hedious as their outer beauty fades.

  2. It’s sad that teenagers cake on makeup to hide their acne. I used to have a face full of acne but I never felt the need to cake on makeup. I think it’s harder to maintain throughout the day, especially when I live in a tropical country and have oily skin. But then again, I understand where they’re coming from. I did feel very self-conscious and I’ve encountered people who ask what’s wrong with my face. Without something to cover up the acne, we feel too exposed. Oh but if I only knew how not to give a damn, my life would be so much less painful.

    1. Yes, I definitely agree with you. Although at times I have felt so insecure about my skin that I have wanted to cover it up too. Learning that I am worth more than my skin or what other people say about it, is truly freeing. So overall I don’t feel the need to cover it up. I know that in time my skin will get better. Thanks for reading. Grace. ❤
