My mother got up and got herself ready for the day every morning. She always put on clean clothes, did her hair, and did her makeup. She encouraged me to do the same, even if I knew the day was going to be filled with dirt, sweat, or tears.
On the flip side, I have often felt that my beauty came from the inside out, so I'm quite comfortable in my own, un-made-up skin. I have no problem going to the store without makeup.
Still, I've tried to get ready for every day, including most school days from the time I started wearing makeup, and DEFINITELY for every work day.
Today I came to work without makeup for the second time in my life. Funny thing is someone told me I looked really pretty. Ha. That's a laugh. It's kind of them to say, but even I cringe when I look in the mirror. :)
My mother would be appalled. I was just glad to get here this morning.
