OMG! No Makeup! So BRAVE!

Ok, so I’ve posted my share of pictures here on this blog.  And with exception of my wedding pictures and another handful of pictures here and there, everything else is me NOT wearing makeup.

And now I’ve been reading on blogs that not wearing makeup suddenly has become brave.  Brave!!! 

Meanwhile I thought I was just lazy!  Who knew instead it was an act of courage?

I can’t possibly be the only person who thinks that not wearing makeup doesn’t have a thing to do with being brave, no?  Because seriously, what is the big deal?

And yes, though I can look pretty with makeup on…

I also don’t think it’s a big deal that pretty much every.single.day of my life I go outside looking like this instead:

Sure, I could spend 20 minutes on my face everyday and make it a much more pleasant encounter for everyone but again, not applying makeup has a lot more to do with laziness than bravery.  Regardless of what some girls try to tell you…  I probably put on makeup every week or two (like mascara and lipstick), and the full shebang less often than once a month.  Even back at when I used to work I rarely bothered.  Because seriously, what is the big deal?  (And again, I’m lazy and really value my sleep.)

Sure, wearing makeup can make people look more polished, but I’ve met plenty of people that look like complete crap because they apply too much of it or don’t know how to properly apply it.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks a “naked” face is just a face, not a shout to the world of how courageous you are.  Am I the only person here who doesn’t apply makeup on a daily basis?
