Makeup Took Away My Coffee Time.

When Katie was born I struggled like all new moms do trying to figure out how to take care of a baby, the house, and myself. One of my struggles was getting Katie ready for church at the same time getting myself ready for church. One day, I just decided I was no longer going to wear makeup until I had more time in the morning to put it on.

I found that time, but I gave up makeup anyway.

After I could balance getting Katie and myself ready I realized I really didn’t want to wear makeup. I have never liked how it felt on my face, I never liked washing it off, and I just never wanted to spend the time putting it on. So, I gave it up.

I have really enjoyed not wearing makeup!

I’m not against makeup or women who wear makeup. My desire not to wear makeup is just a personal choice. It’s nice not to have to wake up early to put it on. It’s nice not to have to spend money on it and it’s nice to have free time in the morning.

There is no rule that says a woman must wear makeup. If you don’t like it, don’t wear it!

  1. Words were never truer! I can count on one hand how many times I’ve worn make up. It’s too time consuming, and then you have to get the colors right, and then there are curious kids… I never understood the difference it makes whether a woman wears it or not, but perhaps I’m naive. Or way too practical.
