Makeup is overrated

I used to think I needed to wear makeup because all my friends were. I felt I needed to look a certain way to fit in.  When I would spend the night with two of my best friends our Saturdays revolved around playing sisters (pretend) and doing makeovers. by the time I was twelve I knew more about makeup than any normal twelve-year-old should. I was wearing the whole nine-yards of makeup by the time I was fourteen and now wonder why.

Seriously, why did I feel like I needed to cover up what God has given me.

When I was nineteen, my life got busy and I just decided to not wear  that much makeup. Looking through pictures that I like the most of myself, I am wearing little or no makeup.And that when I decided what the heck? And put down the makeup brushes. My make up routine has changed a lot since I was fourteen, I went from wearing everything from wearing foundation to eyeliner and now I wear on a good day I will leave the house with face powder and mascara. Mascara can take you a long way. These days it is not uncommon to find me with my hair in a messy bun and little makeup on(like right now). I only get all dolled up for big events such as weddings, banquets, and places I might see important people.

in all seriousness, why do we (girls) feel like we need to cover up every blemish? we were made in the image of God, put down the makeup brushes. makeup is overrated anyway.
