Don't just live in the world

Made up

January 18th, 2015 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal

I like to clean the house for the New Year and one of the things I knew I had to do this year was to throw away all the makeup in my makeup bag. I’ve been  a reader of women’s magazine for years so I know that makeup should be trashed after 12 or 18 months. That meant that everything in my bag had to go because it’s all at least 4 years old.

Every once in a while I try to wear makeup but I have never really been successful. I never really learned how to put it on properly so whenever I do wear some I’m always worried that I look like a fool.

I think that’s also why I never really started wearing makeup – I didn’t want to show up at school one day looking like a clown. Basically I never really changed anything about myself during high school because I didn’t want everyone to suddenly notice that I was trying to be different.

Now I’m older and those same magazines are telling me that I should have started using eye cream at 30. I probably should have started using night cream too.

In reality it’s a good day when I remember to moisturize.

And I’m okay not wearing makeup because I’m a student and a mom. When I finish grad school and I’m networking and looking for jobs and I’m 35 then will it be time for me to get comfortable wearing makeup? Do I have to wake up early in the morning to shower and do my hair and makeup – none of which I spend much if any time on at all.

Believe it or not, not wearing makeup here

And how does a 35 year old woman learn?

So do you wear makeup? When did you start and how did you learn about it? What brands do you love?
