Okay, so this month’s challenge may seem odd. Especially with so many women baring their faces for “no make-up Mondays” and posting selfies with #nomakeup.
Well for this bum, every day is no make-up Monday!
Blame it on the fact that I am a new mom. Or a wife. Or a woman. Or a brunette. Basically I use any excuse I can.
Because I hate wearing make-up.
I don’t know why. I definitely like the way I look better with make-up, but for some reason I don’t like the way it feels. I’ve tried every kind of foundation…but I still just don’t like the way it feels.
That being said, my poor husband didn’t realize that when we got married that I would turn into an ole hag and never do my hair or make-up again. I realized this one day when I wore make-up because I had an appointment, and he just stared at me and was like “You are just so beautiful.”
Now, before anyone gets all mad at my husband and thinks he doesn’t think I’m beautiful without make-up. BACK IT UP.
I mean. No, honey, that’s simply not true.
Chris is SO precious and tells me I am beautiful every day. But he’s still a man who appreciates it when his wife keeps herself up and puts a little effort into her appearance, like…I don’t know…showering? (ha…wish I was kidding)
So, this is my challenge for myself this August:
I will wear make-up every day for the next two weeks.
Now my reasoning for this is two-fold:
1) I want my husband to know that I love him and care about the way I look for him. I want to do something a little extra…even if it is something as silly as wearing make-up.
2) I’m hoping (*fingers crossed*) that I will get into the habit of wearing make-up more if I do it consistently for the next two weeks. I feel more put together when I do my make-up, even if I would rather be “clean-faced.”
So what about you ladies? Is this a struggle for any of you?
If so, want to join my challenge? Let me know how it goes!!
