How to be Confident without Makeup

How to be confident without makeup

Now I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m confident without makeup (or with makeup), but I’m working on it. I don’t wear makeup often. Occasionally, I decide that I want to put on lipstick or fill in my brows, but it is very occasional. And yet, 4 years ago I wouldn’t be caught dead without makeup. In fact, I even was late for school a few times because I either convinced my parents to turn around or I turned around myself to go back home to put on makeup (sorry mom).

Why I Don’t Wear Makeup

There are many reasons I don’t wear makeup. The main reason is that I’m just lazy. Well, I guess it’s not necessarily being lazy, more selective energy usage.

21 Things I've Learned in 21 Years

Perfection

I haven’t blogged in over a month. I have a lot of ideas, however, my mind goes crazy with the thought that it has to be perfect. I have to find the perfect cover photo and the perfect caption. Yes, it is hard to overcome the need to have everything perfect before I post anything, but if I wait for perfection, I will never post anything. There will be a time when I can put an amazing cover photo on every post that I write and include lots of content in my posts that support my ideas. But for now, I just need to get my ideas out and just do it. Continue reading “Perfection”
