Me Without Makeup
Written by Project Inspired | August 1, 2011
I never go a day without wearing makeup, unless I’m just lounging around the house or hanging out with my close family. I’m kind of a vain person when it comes to makeup, and think I look less than presentable when I don’t wear it. So this took a lot of courage and humility for me to do. Two of my very close friends told me I should at least try not wearing makeup. So here it is. I may have a bit of mascara on from the day before, but absolutely nothing else other than that. I love my hair, even though it’s really irritating sometimes, because I get it from my dad and my grandfather. I also really like my eyes and their color, though I feel the need to wear eye makeup a lot. I know that at least for me, this is a humbling experience, and I should be grateful to God for making me the way He did. Because even though I may not feel like I’m the most beautiful girl in the world, I know that I am fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. And I absolutely love that. ♥
