Would You? Go Bare Faced

Some women do it all the time. Others only at home.  Many, never.

Going without makeup.  Do you or don’t you?  I usually don’t go a day without at least concealer and brown eyeliner.  It adds just enough polish to make me feel presentable, and it takes a whole 30 seconds to apply.  No biggie.  For a day when I am going out or want to look nice, I’ll add blusher and mascara.  Going out at night?  Time to break out the works; luminzer, eyeshadow, lip color.  I love make up, playing with it and mixing it up.

But today I felt like going bare.

Part of it was the facial mask I used after showering.  My skin was so bright and perky and glowing on its own, I just hated to cover it up.  Even though clean makeup is not bad for skin, it just felt really good to leave my face bare.  And I wasn’t leaving the house.  I even slathered on a little extra moisturizer for good measure.

Going out in public bare faced?  Many women shudder at the thought.  Would you go bare faced?  Do you go bare regularly?  Occasionally?  Never?  We’ d love to know…
