Re: I Did It, I Tossed All My Make-up!

YAY YOU!!!!!

 

And now it's time to relax with those kiddencats, use SPF when you go out and drink a lot of hydrating beverages - which always make the skin look nice.

 

A smile goes a long way to BEAUTIFY a face; regardless of age!

 

Smile and relax - you probably feel boatloads lighter having done this and I congratulate you.

Not for me since I have rosacea I will be applying foundation forever...and told the husband he must put it on me if something like an emergency happens LOL!!  

 

People with normal skin (healthy) can go w/o foundation....I wish I could do that but barring a miracle happens I will be wearing mine until the day I go on to Heaven.

 

If you don't really need it like I do and you look better without it then it does make sense to toss it out.  I would suggest a spf moisturizer for sure...we all need that when going out.

It is very freeing. I used to wear makeup everyday but anymore maybe twice a week.

It's nice to downsize!

I still love playing with makeup lol. When we were teens, we'd meet at the Woolworth makeup counter and check out the blush, lipstick, nail polish, etc.

I'm a fan of eye makeup, so I wear that--along with lipstick, but never foundation or blush. Or any kind of powder.

Stray hairs here and there, brows, sparse lashes, etc.

The days of putting make-up on and being pleased with how I looked are gone.  The last 5 years of stress and worry have taken a toll and all the make-up in the world won't help. I have aged more in the last 5 years than I did in the previous 65 yrs. put together.

 

This morning I chucked it all, except for 3 lip sticks. So it will be moisturizer and lip stick from here on out. I shudder to think how much money I just threw out.

 

DD asked me recently if I was going to ever wear "all this make-up that's just been sitting in the bathroom cabinet."

 

Surprisingly, with the exception of a lot of wasted money, it doesn't bother me. I never thought I would or could go without it.


I just want you to know that   i  also have just aged so much ,sense my husband died in 2013,  i had no wrinkles, none boy do i ever have them now,i hate it.

When you lose some one you L~O~V~E, that Memory of them, becomes a TREASURE.

I love makeup - always have, always will. Usually buy something new every week (this includes hair and nail products and services as well).  

Almost everything I use is enhanced with nourishments which is helpful and always cruelty free.

When you look good you feel good...

Re: I Did It, I Tossed All My Make-up!

I follow a couple gals on YouTube who review makeup, etc.

The trend is to do these Project Pan challenges.

They buy a big palettes & try & 'reach pan' in a month-so.

I think to myself,

I've been trying to 'reach pan' on makeup I wore 10 yrs ago!

😮

And the thing is...all these young gals have beautiful skin just being

covered with mountains of makeup.  I was the same way in my 20s.

THAT should be the time to go without makeup! 
And yes, I shudder at the thought of the $$$ I spent throughout the yrs.

@CrazyKittyLvr2  You are so wise, there's no reason to hang on to it if it isn't making you feel good. 

 

For me at nearly 74 y/o, I still enjoy using makeup to improve what I can when I go away from the house.  I know nobody else cares.  One day I'll stop, too.  I felt that way about coloring my hair at 70 and finally quit at 71.  Sometimes it's a gradual process. 

 

Living well is most important, let's do that!
