When tasked with picking a project for 100 days, I decided to challenge myself with something I knew I needed to be held accountable for. My relationship with makeup has been a glamorous, shimmery, pink filled love affair and I decided I needed to test it. I never imagined my relationship with makeup would completely change, or that I would learn so much about skincare, healthy habits and myself. This journey has been nothing short of incredible.
Today, I pulled out my strategically hidden cosmetic bag. Over the last 100 days I had forgotten how much stuff it contained– three different types of concealer, five different types of mascara, foundation, brushes I totally forgot I had and so much more. I instantly started purging. Mascaras–gone, to old to use now anyways. Concealer–who needs three? Tossed those too. I gathered all my brushes and decided that before any of them where going to touch my face, they were going to be cleaned.
Tomorrow is my much anticipated thesis presentation, and the first day I can wear makeup if I choose. For the firs time, in a long time, I have a decision to make.
