I Never Leave the House Without my “Face On”!

Call me vain, superficial, crazy, or whatever you like, but I never leave the house without makeup on.  I’ve been wearing makeup since I was 13 years old (unfortunately) and now it’s just how I feel most like me.  

How do I find the time with a young baby, you may ask?  I make the time, plain and simple.  I am pretty good at putting makeup on fast and it really does only take me five minutes or less to “do my face”.  Sometimes Baby O watches me while sitting in his bouncy chair in the bathroom, or I wait until he’s napping and then I do it.  I should also mention that 99% of the time Jason takes over baby duty for an hour or so in the mornings so I can have a shower and dry my hair before he leaves for work - bless his heart.

Why is makeup so important to me?  I feel like the best version of myself when I’m wearing it.  I feel alive and confident and good about how I look.  Since I am less than thrilled about how I look from the neck down (but that's a whole other blog post...), looking and feeling good from the neck up is super important to me.  

Maybe I look ridiculous in Mom and Baby Yoga class or at Parent and Tot Swimming lessons with my full “face on” but I feel good and that’s what’s most important.

What do you do to feel great about yourself?  I’d love to hear it!

  1. You just care about how you look and you're definitely not the only one in the world! No shame in that!That said, I recently heard about a woman who was just like that (I think it was on British tv) and after someone asked her about her habit, she one day went out without any makeup on. I wonder how she felt about it (or herself).

    I myself have to admit, there are days that I don't have my face on (only when I don't need to go anywhere), but I usually at least do my brows, lashes, and cheeks. I just look a lot healthier that way!
