I never used to wear makeup. I started wearing makeup a year or so after I started college, so maybe 2007 but probably more like 2008. Even then, I only wore it for work and it was very, very minimal.
I still don’t often wear anything but sunscreen if I’m only running to the store or such, but since my makeup obsession exploded, I’ve tried to make a concerted effort to wear something just to use up my stash. Now, I enjoy putting on a full face if I’m going out or for special occasions.
Lately, though, with my birth control, my face has been wigging out. And despite my near-religious use of sunscreen, I have noticeable (though not significant) sun damage such as dark spots and uneven skin tone. So I’ve developed a foundation obsession to compensate…
I was digging through some older pictures, and I found the below shot. Now I remember why I never used to wear makeup.
Where did that flawless skin go? (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻ Give it back!
