I view makeup as an accessory. I use it to have fun and feel pretty and girly. I love how I can change up my makeup look just like I can change my nail color, shoes, jewelry, or purses to match my outfit or mood.
I tend to use makeup on special occasions like when I go to dinner, an event, or when I'm out for a night on the town. I don't usually wear makeup on a daily basis, like when I run errands or go to work. Even though it is fun to wear and I feel pretty/sexy with it on, nothing beats the feeling of having a fresh face and still feeling confident and beautiful. There are times when I wish that I was more skilled at applying makeup so that I would be able to change up my look and have more fun when putting makeup on. I also wish that I took the time in the morning to put more effort into wearing makeup each day. Women in the workforce are judged based on their appearance, not just on their work/work ethic.
My biggest concern with not wearing makeup everyday (especially to work) is that I am inadvertently hurting my career. I hope that a day will come where women can choose to wear makeup, or not wear makeup, if they want to without pressure from society to conform to a certain standard of beauty.
