Is a bare face daring?
This seems to be the big question at the moment. I received a question from Elina, one of our readers, about how I feel about make-up. Back in the day I would spend an hour doing my eyeshadow for a night on the town. But now I feel more comfortable in my own skin and I rarely wear make-up, mainly because it takes too damn long. Most days I am happy if I remember to put on moisturizing cream and brush my hair… But every now and then I love to treat my face and give it a good peel, massage it with oil and end with a moisturizing face mask. But back to make-up, to tell the truth I do not feel that much prettier in make up, rather more fake? This is only my feeling towards myself and I admire friends and people around me that master the skills and find putting on a full face fun. When I actually do wear make-up I don’t use more than concealer, mascara and this time of year, a bronzer. If I am going to a party I might even wing on some eyeliner but then it has to be one hell of a party. Sometimes I feel the weight of expectation as a woman to wear make-up in order to look professional, but men don’t look like unprofessional slobs without make up so why should I?
