Stress, work, life, kids - it really catches up and to my dismay, I can no longer fall asleep without washing my face. And, moisturizer is my new best friend along with foundation.
I didn't always feel the need to wear makeup. I even got compliments on my skin without it but I wore at least foundation most days. At some point, I stopped wearing makeup and when I ran out of moisturizer, I neglected to put it on the shopping list.
Then last week, the Hubs and I were watching Inside Amy Schumer and the skit, Girl, You Don't Need Makeup, came on.
Sure enough, all my insecurities were confirmed.
Humming to the tune, "get up an hour early and you can make yourself much girlier," I reached for my laptop. A few clicks and a small fortune later, my order was on its way.
In my heart, I know that it's not truly necessary to wear makeup and I should be comfortable in my own skin. But let's face it - I'll just put it on.
I bought the makeup for the same reason I just put myself through phase one of the South Beach diet and will stay on phase two until I reach my goal. I want to feel better, and while "vitamin Z" can get me pretty close, diet and makeup help get me even closer to how I want to feel - young, confident and pretty.
