Eye efforts.

Thursday, January 10, 2013

In an effort to love myself completely, I am trying to do away with using conventional make-up products (among other things).

I spend 5 days out of the week at work, where it doesn't matter if I'm "dolled" up or not... then the weekend hits and I spend it with people who don't care if I'm "dolled" up or not, because who the hell cares about that anyway?

9 times out of 10, wearing make-up only helps to facilitate my insecurities because it instills a panic in me if I don't have eyeliner or mascara on.

History on that insecurity: I have short, blonde eyelashes with blue eyes and it was pointed out to me once, which made me feel worried about what others thought of my eyes... I started to wear eyeliner & mascara to help show that I really do have eyelashes. I cared more about it when I was in high school, but then after I graduated, it just became a habit.

I wear glasses most of the time now, so I haven't really been using cosmetics at all. My eyes feel way better. Eye make-up was the only thing that I ever really use, so otherwise, I don't really have that much to give up.

I'm not saying that I won't be wearing cosmetics ever again, but if I do, I think I'm going to look into finding some eyeliner or mascara that is made of earthy material and not a chemical that isn't good for my body. After all, if you can't eat it, should you be putting it on another part of your body?

    I have never used makeup...except SPF every day. I think this came about when I poked a mascara brush into my eye when I first tried makeup 45 years ago. I decided that this is who I am, and if you don't like my face the way it is, don't look at doesn't bother me! Be proud of who you really are!
