Benefits of Not Wearing Makeup.....

Hi My Loves!!!

This was me last week while I was out shopping at the mall with Baby Sistor. This is what I always look like (minus the glassess haha) when I go out. Whether I'm just running to the grocery store or going all out to the mall (yah baby)..... if you were to run into me, this is what you would see. Hair pulled back into a messy bun, yoga pants, a zip up hoodie and no makeup. This is what a Mommy of a 6 week old and a 20 month old looks like (please tell me I'm not the only one!!!) Haha!

As we were walking, Baby Sistor was taking a sip of her Starbucks and it spilled a little down her. I was telling her that the same thing used to happen to me when I wore makeup because I didn't want to ruin my lipgloss. That is when I was inspired for this blog post..... the benefits of not wearing makeup!!!

#1. You won't spill your coffee down you worrying about ruining your lipgloss!
Haha no really though.... I constantly used to spill drinks down me trying not to mess up my lipgloss.  Are BS and I the only ones?? 

#2. Your skin will love you!
My skin is in the best condition it has ever been. It's as soft as my babies skin (that's soft).... It's all because I haven't been wearing makeup. My skin can breathe for once in it's 27 year old life and it's loving it. I used to wear foundation every single day of my life, no matter what I was doing or where I was going and this month I wore makeup 2 times.... the entire month! Now I must say I do not look snazzy or feel snazzy for that matter but my skin is very soft and clear haha!

#3. You get ready super fast!
When you are a Mommy, time management is key. Getting out of the house for us is trickier than people think. I know, that as soon as I'm done nursing her I have about 2 hours to get out of the house, where we need to be and getting what we need to get done, done..... before she's ready to nurse again. Needless to say, there isn't much time for me to get ready. That is why there isn't any time at the moment for makeup. I quickly throw on some clothes, put my hair up and then spend the rest of the time getting my little ones ready to go, making sure my diaper bag is stocked and making sure nobody is going out the door hungry....

#4. You can kiss your babies/hubby without leaving lip gloss all over them!
Jay always used to complain that he could never kiss me without "getting sticky crap all over his lips" Haha!!! Now he loves being able to kiss me with my gloss free lips and hug me knowing that I'm not going to smear foundation and half of my eyebrow all over his clothes before work. Also, I can kiss on my babies all I want, as much as I want because I don't have to worry about getting makeup all over their delicate skin :)

#5. It saves you money!
Last but not least...... it's definitely friendlier on the budget when you are not constantly on the hunt for the newest, latest and greatest makeup palette or foundation. I'm sure Jay loves that haha!! Now I get excited about buying strollers. Actually I can honestly say I was more excited when I got my new double stroller here's the one we bought (I LOVE IT) than I ever was with a new makeup item haha! Anything to make my life just a tad bit easier is alright by me :)

So there you have it.... the benefits of not wearing makeup. Now don't get me wrong, I still LOVE my makeup and how it makes me feel when I wear it..... I'm just trying to make the other Mama's out there feel better about not having the time to look snazzy like we once did haha :) And hopefully there ARE other Mommy's out there that don't get time to wear makeup or else I'm gonna feel like a total loner! ;)

Hope this amused you in some way :)

Happy Tuesday!!
