As someone who very much believes in giving the world the best Rosie possible, I usually wear makeup. I feel more comfortable and confident when I'm wearing it, and for these reasons I'm far more outgoing and happy. Even though I tell myself I wear it for positive reasons, it's been over two years since I spent any meaningful amounts of time around my peers without my face painted.
I don't wear much, just some concealer, eyeliner and mascara, but every morning, I carefully paint it on. I can tell myself that it's self expression all I want, it doesn't change the fact that it has become a borderline addiction.
When I found out about No Make Up Week, I was both excited and fearful. I was excited because I know it will be an amazing experiment, and I'm sure I will feel differently about makeup after, but afraid because I honestly don't know if I can do it. I'm so used to painting over the little imperfections that it will be very strange to show my self to the world.
Do you wear make up? Will you try No Make Up Week?
