Naked Day

Today was my day off of work.  Usually, I have a pretty set routine when it comes to getting myself ready for the day.  It always includes applying makeup.  In certain years of my life, I could go an entire week without wearing a lick of makeup.  These days, it just doesn't happen anymore! 

Because of this, something has happened.

I'm not sure if I like my bare face anymore!  It was kind of scary to realize that without my usual makeup on, I didn't feel like "me."  When I look in the mirror, all I see are the little flaws and places I'd usually like to define with makeup.  Today, I decided to make a stand.  It was a little one, since I didn't have to go to work.

I actually brought my wedding dress in for the first phase of alterations today!  I walked in, barefaced and all, and it went FINE.  And then, I met up with my dear friend Monika for a walk in the snow-covered forest preserve, and it was GREAT.  I managed to have a great day, and all without any makeup.

Am I speaking to anyone here?  Does anyone else dare leave the house without a trace of makeup?

I hereby declare one day of the week Naked Day.  I shall ditch makeup entirely (unless I'm in desperate need of lipbalm) for one full day.  I will reconnect with my naked face and we'll get close again.  Who's with me?!?
