About a month ago Joy bared her face to all of you in BloggerLand. I was impressed, but NOT about to follow her example, because hey, like I want to have my face spread on the web naked!
The horror of it all! My kids laughed an agreed that was something I would NEVER do because I wouldn't even step out of the house without my "full face bring it on makeup".
Hmmmmm.....that gave me something to think about. What is the BIG deal?
My husband has always said that I am equal parts Lady Diana and Lucille Ball. He is so right. The Lady Diana part is tricky because it insists on putting on a good public face no matter what is going on inside.
(Calling Brie VandeKamp!!!!)
It's like I have Mary Poppins Syndrome "Practically perfect in every way". I strive to do everything and do it with perfection. What is up with that??? This makes it hard to just let my hair down and say "Hello world, look at all my wrinkles and imperfections!!!!!" LOL
But I have this one amazing little girl who is 9. What crazy kind of example is that?
Beauty is only skin deep and all that.
On top of all this, I was reading a blog
"Dressing Mommy" http://dressingmommy.blogspot.com/ and she put out a challenge to bare ourselves (faces ladies, just faces).
So, here I am world.....Not even a stitch of foundation.
Seriously, my kids thought this was so much fun they are stalking me with the CAMERA!!! LOL
And there you have it. The hair is air-dried, not hair product, NOTHING!! I have horrid dark circles and I think I have completely lost my mind to be doing this. But my kids and Spouse have been making a list of the things that make me beautiful and that is the most beautiful thing of all.
Apparently they love that I laugh...A LOT. I give the best hugs, do the best accents when I read books aloud, and make the best dinners. I am also fun to watch during scary movies and they think I am the best substitute teacher there ever was! Hey, not bad!!!!
On the flip side I can enhance that inner beauty, play up my eyes and all that.
And for some weird lighting reason, look like I just had a horrid spray tan! Yikes!
How about you ladies? do you love makeup? Does it help you feel more confident? Beautiful?
Or do you dread running into people when you look like you just woke up?
