I’m past the halfway mark! To be completely honest, I didn’t think I was going to make it this far with the ‘No Makeup Challenge’. I’ve been posting all of my positive feelings about this experience, but the truth is that I’ve also been complaining about it relentlessly as well. My boyfriend read some of my update posts the other day and started bursting out laughing and called me a fraud for not telling you all how much I’ve been hating this challenge as much as I have been loving it. So here are some of the
negative not so positive things he’s referring to…
Every morning, without failure, I complain. I can’t help it. I have a dresser stacked with makeup and I can’t touch a single product. Not a single one. The other day, I was putting on CC cream and I was told I couldn’t even use that! So every morning, for the past 16 days, I’ve been asking my boyfriend if he still loves me even when I don’t have makeup on (even though I already know the answer). Sometimes I’ll even try to make him feel bad for putting me up to such a ridiculous challenge by holding a product that I miss dearly and reminding him of how good I’d look with it on. It never works, but I guess it never hurts to try. There are other days when I just don’t care. I just remind myself of the days I have left and how the ones I have completed have flew by so quickly. In case you were wondering, they haven’t. At night, we go through the same thing – “Babe, why can’t I just put on a little bit of makeup? Does lip gloss count? What about BB creams and CC creams?”… if you’ve thought about it, I’ve definitely asked about it, the list goes on.
Listen, I’m not saying I hate this challenge. I’m just saying that it’s not the most pleasant thing to have to do for 16 days in a row. Maybe I’ll change my mind on day 20. Stay tuned for the next update.
