I Don't Own Make-up

The last time I wore make-up was in 2003. At my wedding.

I like my face the way it is and am not big into putting on bunch of weird chemicals only to be kissed off later by my children. Well, I suppose eye make-up isn't kissed off, but I can't stand to have my eye lashes coated in goo.

My sister got married a couple of years ago and I was a bridesmaid. I decided to get a little crazy and wear make-up. I laughed and told the girl applying my make-up that the last time I wore any was at my own wedding. She stopped what she was doing and said, "Aww, hon, you should take some time for yourself. You deserve it."

I thought that was hilarious and really, if I were to take some time for myself, I would do something like shower. Alone.
