Why I Don't Wear Makeup

Why I Don’t Wear Makeup, Top Atlanta Blogger, melodiestewart.com, Atlanta Street style

I’m a woman in my early 40’s and I don’t wear makeup. Basically my makeup routine consists of soap, water and lotion (and a facial cleanser from time to time). The closest I come to wearing makeup is the occasional mascara when I’m hanging out (and that’s if I remember) and lipstick (mainly for photoshoots).

Not wearing makeup is not a form of silent protest, I’ve never been into it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against a nicely done beat face; it’s just not my thing. Even during my highschool days when a lot of girls were, I had no desire.

Having to get up early every morning just to paint my face is no es bueno. It’s time consuming and I don’t have time nor do I want to commit that kinda time for such a routine. I’d prefer to use that time snoozing or changing my mind about my first outfit choice.

I love my natural look. I really like how I look without it. Even in a room full of women who look amazing with it on, I’m still confident without it, so it works.

My final thoughts on makeup are although I may not ever be fully into it, I do appreciate my sisters who wear it well. And while I believe that makeup is not always necessary I have dabbled in it at least 3x’s in my lifetime. The last pic is me with a full beat face by WhippedbyKiara, pc: Mecca Gamble.

How confident you are without any makeup?
