Aside having a good sleep and catching up on that lovely date and being free, there is also a part of your life that brings you freedom once in a while. One of these could be when you decide to stop wearing makeup. Hence, you don’t have to fumble around with compacts and brushes and wands. All you need do is just slap on body lotion and call it a day, but this has brought to mind, what it could be like to forgo makeup altogether. Here are the six things that could happen if you decide to go all-natural;
1. YOU COULD GET A CLEARER SKIN:
There are so many layers of product on your face, this is majorly between the foundation, concealer, blush and contouring on your face. If we are being really honest with ourselves, we are probably not removing it all correctly at the end of the day. This means that makeup is still left in our pores. Give your skin a break from it all or go all-natural and you might find yourself with clearer skin in a couple days.
2. YOU COULD LOOK YOUNGER:
You could look younger especially if you tend to be less heavy with your face. The smattering of freckles across your nose and the rosiness in your cheeks that you are always trying to tone down actually makes you look more naturally youthful.
3. YOU MIGHT APPRECIATE YOUR HAIR MORE:
The fact that you are forgoing makeup doesn’t mean that you are entirely giving up on your appearance. You should use a few minutes to smooth down your hair or try out that pretty braid you never had time for before.
4. AT FIRST, YOU MIGHT BE INSECURE:
You might be thinking if you would look tired or less attractive when you stop wearing makeup, or if your co-workers and friends would mumble on the side. These different thoughts are signs of insecurity. Chances are no, no one will notice. You might feel a little self-conscious initially, but those fears will be eased when you realize you suddenly have an extra half hour to spare in the mornings.
5. YOU MIGHT GET MORE INVESTED IN YOUR SKINCARE:
If you are going to go barefaced, you would definitely want your skin to look as good as possible, not broken out and blotchy. Therefore, slap on the serums and masks and the all-important SPF and see your skin thanking you now or later.
6. YOU COULD BECOME LESS STRESSED:
Proper maintenance of a beauty routine can be a hassle. Thus, is your foundation even? Are your lashes clumpy? Has your liner smudged? Not wearing makeup will alleviate you from these little anxieties and free up more of your mind for important tasks like taking the time to stretch and meditate.
