Being lazy and vain is a struggle. In previous years, for someone who would fling her wallet straight into closest Priceline store, I’d often been negligent with my beauty habits (like ‘forgetting’ to wipe my makeup off before bed); thinking hey, I can always cover up any problem spots with makeup. That’s what foundation and concealers were made for, right?
And that’s all good and well, until you start getting grossed out by the dull, sunburned, blemish-ridden skin you’ve got underneath all that fancy face paint. (I wish I had pictures, but I hated taking no-makeup selfies back in the day.) This goes without saying – but being uncomfortable with your natural look can really do a number on your self-esteem.
