Taking a Makeup Break

Taking a Makeup Break

Sometimes I need a little break. I know all moms feel this way. Although we don’t always get the luxury of getting a break from our demanding lives, we need to find little things in our day to day schedule that we can take away to give ourselves a break from a few things that demand our time. Give ourselves a little rest and relaxation before we find ourselves wiping another dirty bum or scrubbing an unknown substance off of the floor we just finished mopping up. We live glamorous lives, right?

One thing I like to give myself a little break with is my makeup. I know, I know… I have a freaking makeup book! I am quoted on my feelings about how important I think it is for our self esteems to wear makeup and to feel beautiful, but I also think there comes a time that we need to take a makeup break. I am totally included in this. Today I took a makeup break. I do this once and a while. Most of the time I do this on the days that I know that I will just be home and not really see anyone. Today was different. I went and ran errands and was home, but I had a lot of people over at my house. Guess what? The world didn’t end. I lived to go through it and I didn’t even feel embarrassed. I still did my hair and got dressed for the day and was able to still feel like I was done up for the day without my makeup on. I was able to rely on more than just my makeup for my self esteem.

There are more benefits about breaking up with your makeup than just taking a break and working on your self esteem. It is also really great for your skin! When you stop concealing your skin, you can start healing!

About 16 million Americans suffer from rosacea. When we are just covering up the redness with makeup, we aren’t treating it at all. It can be really expensive to find products to cover it up. It is important to treat rosacea and take a little break from your makeup instead of just covering up our issues with makeup. There is a fabulous product created by Galderma Labratories L.P. called Mirvaso® Gel that is the first and only gel specifically developed and proven to reduce redness from rosacea! Now instead of just concealing, you can heal!

Yep, I totally take a break from makeup every once in a while. It's pretty liberating, but I do love playing around with makeup. Pssst thanks for the adorable bow ring! Somehow one side of the bow fell off. *tear*. I'm going to try and fix it cause I love the ring so darn much!
