funny how he always find himself in these posts...
Ok, not nekkid like that...although I must commend him for his
smokin' hot bod form.
I'm talking nekkid like this...
WAIT FOR IT......
no make-up / wet hair
Ok, not brutal, but certainly not walk out of the house ready.
Geeez, why are us women so hard on ourselves? I mean really, it's not terrible...ish.
I know everyone feels different about themselves, and it also depends on your age. Typically, the older you get, the harder it is to see yourself fresh out of the shower. Wait, I take that back...at least when pertaining to myself. I have ALWAYS been a bit hard on myself. But aren't we all?!
I don't wear tons of make up, but I also haven't ever been the type to go to work with just mascara or lip gloss. I tend to also have a bit of eye shadow and concealer to go along with. Maybe it's because I have always been on stage, so to speak. Working at a Concierge desk in the past, I was the centerpiece of the lobby. Really. I had to look presentable. Now, I work in a private office with one other person. One would think I'd go to work sans make up. NOPE. There is always the chance I'll have to go meet a client unexpectedly. It's not too often that it happens, but when it does I don't want to look blah. Hmm, maybe I should start keeping a spare stash of make up at the office for such occasions? That way I can wear less make up during the day. Granted, I don't wear as much make up as some people...on a typical work day I wear a shear tinted spf lotion, bronzer or blush, eye shadow, mascara & gloss. It takes me all of 8 minutes.
When I really think about it, I'm more concerned with my hair. If my hair is done, I'll go run errands sans make up, or with just a hint of mascara...but if my hair isn't to my liking, I wont leave the house. I guess that's a different post. Why was I writing about make up again? Oh yeah, I was staring at myself in the mirror after my bubble bath with a scowl on my face ;)
All this said, I was originally going to get my make up done for the wedding by Brian Bond. He's done celebs such as Kendra Wilkinson & Kim Kardashian. Granted, he does do simple make up too. BUT now I'm afraid that I might still feel like it's too much. I wonder if I'm just stressing unnecessarily?! I plan to do a trial, but the trial costs $95! Wonder if it's worth it....
What's your take on make up? Hair? Do you beat yourself up?
