Hi, you guys! I’ve missed this little corner of the internet lately, and I feel like I always start these posts with an apology for my lengthy absences away. I don’t have any good excuses, just that life has been particularly busy and I haven’t been spending my free time on my computer. *shrugs shoulders in defeat*
I wanted to talk about the biggest makeup change I’ve made in the past 3 weeks, and it’s a biggie.
I stopped wearing foundation 3 weeks ago.
That might not sound like a big deal, but to me it really is. I started wearing foundation in early high school because I started breaking out pretty badly as a teenager. My skin has always been a sensitive topic for me, and I’ve always been too embarrassed to let people see me without makeup. And even as a 20-something, my skin isn’t the best, and it’s something I’m still a bit sensitive about. My pores seem like craters, and I spend lots of time trying different products and face masks trying to help soothe my poor skin. But the last 3 weeks, I gave up my foundation (right now I’m just using a concealer on red spots or any broken out spots), and I’m so happy with how I feel without it.
The cool thing is, my skin is actually looking better than it did when I was wearing foundation daily. I think maybe I have sensitive skin, and it doesn’t like a bunch of products on it? Not sure. But I’m feeling pretty excited about it.
I’m not going completely makeup-free, of course. I still fill my brows in (I just started using a new product that I’m kind of obsessed with now!), I still wear mascara and sometimes eyeliner. And I usually put a little blush on so I don’t look so pale. You guys, I need summer weather and to be outside more. My winter skin is PALE. I never knew how pale I could be until I started working!
Anyway, I’m pretty excited about this change. Have any of you ever tried going without foundation for a period of time?
