keeping it real FOTD

Ya know what, it doesn’t happen all that often but there are some days I don’t put makeup on. You may find it silly but even when I am doing nothing more than folding laundry in my basement I like having a full face done. What kind of makeup addict would I be if that weren’t the case uh? Applying makeup is a hobby and an enjoyable part of my day. Having said that I sure love… that wasn’t enough emphasis – LOVE the days I don’t have to drag my tired body to the bathroom to wash my makeup off before going to bed. I refuse to sleep in makeup. Gross. But that's just me.

Yesterday was one of those days. My morning got away from me and before I knew it it was bedtime and I could just brush my teeth and climb into bed. That sounds lovely despite the fact that it was because I looked like this all day. Bare face, unkempt hair, and glasses. Ah well. My husband is a lucky man you say?

I thought I’d share because even in this makeup addict’s life there are days I just couldn’t be bothered. And it feels pretty good.

Do you wear makeup every day? And tell me, do you wash it off before bed?


  1. Well, you know better than anyone that I used to sleep in make up in high school. Since then, I got in the habit of washing it off, and now it seriously pains me to even think about sleeping in make up! I have to be sick or extremely tired to not take it off. Are you so proud?!! I usually wear a little make up everyday, definitely more on sundays and special occasions, but I have the odd day where I don't wear any either. I find that even though I'm staying home not doing much, if I shower, get ready and wear a little make up, I feel much more motivated and get way more done! Rather than just sitting on the couch in my pj's!

  2. I wear makeup 9 days out of 10 probably. Some days it is full make up, others it is only a little concealer and some mascara, there are only a few days that I don't do anything! I have got in a really good habit of washing my face every night too, and the once in a while I don't I sure feel gross in the morning!


Straight up now tell me...
