All right, kids, we’ve got just over three weeks left of this challenge, so it’s time to start getting a little crazy. Time to do stuff no sane person could ever be expected to keep up for a year, time to make some changes that are over-the-top impractical and outrageous, because I’ll never have to do this again! I think I’ll call this the “You’ve Gotta Be Kidding Me” series.
The first installment? No more makeup.
For the boys, and some of the more confident girls out there, this is totally no biggie. But try to understand that I’ve been wearing eyeshadow, eyeliner, concealer and blush almost every single day since I was 15. As you can tell from the occasional photo of me on this site, it’s not as though I wear tons of makeup, but there’s no way I leave the house without it.
Fortunately, I’m working from home this entire month, and by home I mean a friend’s cottage up in Creemore, so basically no one will see me except the guy who comes to plow the driveway and the cleaning lady.
The green reason behind this? Well, to use less product, of course. I realize this negates some previous changes, like buying all-natural eyeshadow, lip stick and bronzer, but at this point in the game, I’m hoping you can forgive the occasional bit of redundancy.
