Usually when I travel I do not wear makeup because I do not want to waste it and I am not around people I know. For me makeup is part of my routine in the morning and I usually have to wake up earlier to do it but I am not waking up early on vacation.
But then I want to post on social media and that is around people I know and have not seen me without makeup. My eyebrows and the acne scars on my face are the things I worry about the most. But I do not want to but makeup on for just one silly snapchat post that will go away in 24 hours. I have learned that makeup does not define me and that I look good without makeup and that I am the hardest judge to myself.
I decided one day that I looked cute enough to post a selfie online and I did, yes there is a filter over it to hide my scars but I am still proud of myself that I posted a clean face picture. The next time I felt cute I added a filter but not one to hid my scars just a silly one hoping it would distract people from my fresh face.
I am not fully there in loving myself without makeup but I became aware on how much control makeup had on me and I am trying to change that. I hope this opened your eyes and you are thinking about how big a part makeup is in your life. Maybe one day you will post a fresh face picture and feel amazing
