Grin and “Bare” It
As you know, I’m heading to the beach soon to enjoy a few days of rest and relaxation. I was chatting with my mother earlier today about what to pack and what not to pack, and she reminded me that since we were going to the beach, I didn’t need to pack any makeup. As scary as it sounds, she’s right. I’m a sweat machine, and mixing that with the gulf coast’s humidity would be a nightmare for my MAC foundation, Covergirl mascara, and Mary Kay lipstick. So, I’m going to suck it up and go barefaced for the duration of my vacation.
Since I’m giving up makeup for the week, I’ll have to be sure to pack my Clarisonic, Purity Made Simple, and Hope In a Jar–also known as Cherith’s trusted trio. I have to work hard to compete with Mom’s effortlessly flawless countenance. Somehow, she forgot to pass on the gene that yields perfectly smooth, blemish-free skin. I’m still working on forgiving her for that!
I do, however, think that I’m going to sneak a lip color in my bag. Recently, I’ve grown addicted to Mary Kay’s Creme Lipstick in Rich Fig. But wait, I wear that with Pink Parfait Lip Gloss, so I have to bring that along, too. Right? And, surely, it won’t hurt to smooth on a little of MAC’s Powerpoint Eye Pencil.
Come on. Give me a break. Divas have certain standards to live up to. You expect me to go five whole days without my makeup? Really??
What’s the longest you’ve every gone without makeup?
