I am up all night with my daughter. If she goes to bed it is midnight and then always gets me up 3 to 4 hours before I feel rested. Sleep is more precious to me than gold. Even an extra 15 minutes a week would be a major gift. If, on the night K stays at grandma's house, I exercise and take a shower before bed and then don't do make up I could get an extra hour!!!
So I am going to do an experiment this week. I'm not going to ware make up! What if I didn't ware make up??? Would anyone care? Would anyone even notice? Would people think that I can still make them beautiful if I just roll out of bed and go to work? I have put mascara on my eyes every day since I turned 12. So I have been doing it twice as long as I haven't. Even though the thought is scary it is also kind of exciting. Can I make it though a day with out my mask on?
I am going to find out.
This is a photo of what I use on my face every day.
Moisturizer, essential oil, mineral foundation, setting powder, blush, eye liner, eye shadow, mascara, and lip gloss. I also use a lash curler and dye my eyebrows darker.
What if all I used was coconut oil?
I love coconut oil! I cook with it I eat it right out of the jar and I slather it on my body from head to toe. I think it is a miracle in a bottle.
This is what I look like today with all my creams and powders on. I actually think I have a rather subtle and natural look going on. (it takes a lot of work to look natural)
I'll post a picture of my naked face over the weekend and keep you up to speed on if anyone seems to notice or not. If not I may just pick sleep over ritual. Wish me luck.
