Can You Go Without Makeup?

Good question right? Is it possible to leave the house without make up on? Are you comfortable in your own skin not wearing anything at all and leaving the house, facing the general public, friends, and family without a stitch on your face?
Debatable for me. My skin is clear and blemish-free so I’m very comfortable without foundation or BB Cream however, I feel dull without makeup. My skin is lackluster without at least a little cheek stain or blush to liven it up. I also feel like I can’t get away without a little concealer.
At one time I wouldn’t leave the house without at LEAST the bare essentials on like a little concealer, Benefit Lemon Aid, and at least blush. But in recent years I’ve grown a little more daring and I do run out and do my errands and such without a stitch on my face. GASP! The horror of it all!
Call it lazy but sometimes I just can’t be arsed to even do concealer when I’m just making a quick trip to Whole Foods or picking something up at the store. Hell I’ve even done mad dashes to the MAC store without a spot of concealer under my eyes, a slick of gloss, or even a dusting of blush.
It wasn’t always like that though! This just happened the past few years.
I’m comfortable with at least blush and concealer. I can do without eyeshadow, without mascara, bb cream, etc..but I am not comfortable facing the world without these essentials and feel a little self conscious when I’m staring at someone, chatting, and not having them in place. I know they aren’t but I feel like they are staring at my eyes and counting the fine lines and tsking over the puffiness. I’m silly I know.
