January Challenge Progress Report

No makeup is hard.  It's so easy to hide behind a mask...And it's both terrifying and liberating to remove it.

I can't think of any cons except some insecurity over this issue, so here are the pros:

*It saves money.  Like, a LOT of money.  Makeup is expensive!  Foundation, eyeliner, mascara, eye shadow, concealer, powder, brushes, sponges, makeup remover...It adds up quick.

*It saves time!  I can sleep more, actually eat breakfast, not have to spend time removing it properly.  It's truly incredible how time-consuming makeup can be.

*It helps eliminate the influence of the media.  I have been part of the whole "you're-not-good/pretty/insertchosenwordhere-enough-unless-you're-being-suffocated-by-a-metric-ton-of-makeup" mentality, and you don't realize how strong of a hold the media has on girls and their images until you're no longer a part of it.  That aspect of it, at least.

*You can scratch your forehead!  Without makeup ending up underneath your fingernails/all over your hands.

*YOU CAN HUG PEOPLE.  And your makeup won't end up all over their clothes!  Because you're not wearing any...

It's been hard, but gratifying.  So that's how that is going :)
