A quick something-something of what I look like last Wednesday.
4 months ago, I've let go of my superficial dream -- Tattooing make-up on my face. Let me first tell you why I had that dream before I spill why I gave it up. It started when I was introduced to my very first "make-up shopping spree", late 2010. . . . 
... To cut the story short-- very short-- jumping to December 2011, I suddenly felt sluggish of putting gunk on my face every time I have to go out. My skin felt tired, I felt tired, My boyriend specially got tired (because he doesn't like me wearing foundation and eye-shadows, for reasons I dare not ask), and it also takes a lot of my getting-ready-to-leave-time. Actually It doesn't, but I could put my 15 minutes to a better use, like, read a book or watch a dvd or water the plants. All this time, I could've done these stuff before I leave the house! Obviously I'm being delirious as usual.
Bottom line, I've decided to give my skin a rest. It's been 3 months now where I only wear make-up exclusively for special occasions and In-case-I-bump-to-a-frenemy-moments. Last Wednsday I was only going to a Sewing & Pattern Review so I don't really have to make myself pretty (what I wear everyday is an exception, it's given, I was born this way).
But a more genuine reason was given to me by my new found belief. Being superficial will only do you good for a certain extent. In an extent of making yourself presentable without diminishing God's given beauty. By putting tons of chemical substances on your face you're practically,slowly, and gorgeously killing your beauty genes. What eternal youth? More like 12 hours of self confidence and a short-cut to GrandmaVille. If you can find an 85-100% edible make-up then by all means smother that Goo on and don't forget to let me know about it. Including a One page review of how, where, when and at least a month span of before and after pictures. I'm dead serious.

But if it's already too late for you, like me (I can't leave the house w/o moisturizing), then I suggest you research, research and research. My sister is a make-up artist and I remember her telling me that there are make-up brands that are good for everyday use and, of course, those that are not. I'm not talking without basis you know. Know you're face gunk and be knowledgeable.

P.S: So this is not a quick something-something after all. I got carried away. =_=
