I know right? An insane thought for a young lady getting ready to write 3 papers, present 2 completely different presentations AND push through Finals week, all while trying to maintain her social and work life... Those bags under my eyes don't cover themselves.
But this past week, I had a thought. With all these school things pounding down on me plus not getting the appropriate amount of sleep, I was severely breaking out across my face. And if you know anything about me, I. Hate. Acne. Like despise it. But as I cleaned my face for like the third time that day, I realized that even though I hate it, it was still kind of part of who I am. An "imperfection" or "flaw" as everyone calls it.
This post is kind of ironic because I know I just posted about what type of make-up I use (you can check it out here!), but I feel like it is a good contrast to what I said in that post. The make-up I do use is healthy for your skin so I'm not putting crazy chemicals on my face when I do go back to wearing make-up.
Now that I have gone a couple of weeks without make-up, my face feels so refreshed and ready to tackle FINALS. I highly encourage y'all to try it, even if it's just a day without it. The feeling you will get is a great one.
P.S. A Huge thank you for all my lovely ladies for sending me their photos without make-up on(: Y'all are truly awesome!
