the healing power of makeup

Talk about self esteem in a bottle. Or at least in a jar of Bare Minerals.

For the first time in nearly two weeks, I wore makeup. And used haispray. And put on jewelry. And wore a bra.

I entered the land of the living again.

Sure, I have literally no cosmetics on as I blog to start the week. And I've talked about how exhilirating, how liberating it feels not to wear makeup.

But dare I say I felt normal this weekend.

And not only did it help my emotional well being, but I felt like I could tackle the world. Yes, I'm a bit conceited.

I admit I overdid it yesterday running errands (rest assured, Dad2Amara drove everywhere). I felt rotten by day's end.

But dammit. I looked good.


  1. As long as you looked good - that's what's important!

  2. I can't remember a no makeup mom2amara... maybe the days of the spikey hair?

  3. Shine - being underage, you would think that some responsible adult would have stopped me from having bad hair back in the day!

  4. It is better to look good than to feel good, my friend.

  5. I haven't worn a bra in months and I just ripped the crotch out of a new (Christmas Gift) pair of pyjamas from my sister... and not in a good way either!
    ... I'm so gross ...

  6. everyone knows this family is bra retarded, you might as well join in too!

  7. Newshutr -- Hello? Did you expect anything less from me?

  8. HMM -- now that you say it, why is it our family is so anti-bra? Trust me, I may not be endowed, but the girls need support. Why is it you don't??

  9. Oooh, I've got such a comeback...

    But you're so loved, I'd get a world of shit for it...

    And I'm not a cruel guy..

    Ok, not always a cruel guy....

  10. fyi, that's the make up I wear. worth the money in my humble opinion.
