Before I start writing this post, I want to make one thing clear; I love makeup and getting dressed up for a night out with a full face is one of my favourite activities (as is trying new products and looks). Now that that is out of the way, on to the real purpose of this post. Is a fresh face the way forward?
I’ve always loved makeup however, I’ve also never been someone to wear it everyday. Even as a teenager when most of my friends wouldn’t leave the house without it on, I never followed this and I still don’t now. Unless I am going out for dinner or drinks with friends or it’s a special occasion, I won’t wear makeup. In fact, I can often go a couple of weeks without putting any on.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve noticed that more and more people are also opting to go for a fresh-faced look for their everyday activity. It was not until I recently started thinking about this that I realised that I see so many people in the fresh-faced gang too and I don’t even bat an eyelid at it. In fact, I’ve seen people on a night out that were either wearing minimal or no makeup and didn’t think anything of it.
For me, there are so many reasons that I decide against wearing makeup most days. To be honest, one of the main reasons is because I like my sleep and would rather have the extra time in bed instead of applying makeup. Other reasons include feeling like I look different for special occasions, having clearer skin and I do believe that not wearing makeup has helped me to be confident in my own skin rather than self-conscious.
Makeup is an amazing thing and this post is just my opinion. I understand how for some, it can help to grow confidence, make people feel amazing and help people in so many ways.
