Now my exception to this rule is on weekend mornings when I run to get coffee or go to CVS to grab a few drugstore items or at the gym. The most I will put on during these occasions is a splash of lip gloss. Makeup has a time and a place. Makeup is a big part of my life. As silly as that sounds, I have a logical reason behind that. It is my hobby. I enjoy studying and recreating different looks. I have done makeup for a couple of my friends' weddings and really enjoyed it!
I have come to the point where I know what I like and I know what I don't like and I try to stay true to that. People have put so many rules out there for makeup on "dos" and "don'ts". While I think some of those are true, it doesn't hurt to bend the rules sometimes. Experiment with it. Test your comfort zone. The worse that can happen is you don't like the outcome and it just washes off as if it was never there. Be proud of your war paint. It's one advantage we have over the men.
