I love makeup! I absolutely love the feeling of getting all dolled up. I feel a sense of security when my face is plastered with cosmetics. I feel the adrenaline pumping when I walk by a makeup counter. The shadows, bronzes, and glosses! Oh my!
However, as a mother of two young boys, I don't have as much time for myself as I used to. I'm lucky if my morning routine consists of having time to brush my teeth let alone apply makeup! But I'm ok with that.
If I can wake up every morning and show my boys the natural beauty of a woman and teach them how to appreciate that then I think I've done an amazing thing for them and any woman who crosses their future paths. So for now, I'll pass up my brushes and lip stains for a bare face and two perfect little boys.
