I still feel like death warmed over, but here's a photo of me and my youngest squishy!
This is me, unapologetically au naturale. I think that the older I become, the more I appreciate the raw beauty in an undone face. It is honest. It is real. There are no lies or tricks or illusions. You don't have to wonder what that person actually looks like once all the make-up is pressure-washed off. There is nothing more bold and rebellious than loving yourself in a world that tells you that you are not pretty enough or thin enough or fair enough, or anything enough.
When I choose to wear make-up, I usually go for a minimal look (though I do have days where I go all out, but really, my daily make-up look is sunscreen, concealer, eyeliner, chapstick). If you choose to wear more make-up, there is nothing wrong with that! Just remember you're beautiful without it and cosmetics are just another accessory. Because even when you're sick in bed, and really need to shower, have been wearing the same shirt for 3 days, and want to kick your 5-year-old out of bed... you're still rockin' it. (But seriously, someone come remove this child from my bed NOW. I can not handle anymore freakin' cuddling, ermahgerd).
