Again, another set of events led me to seek wearing less makeup. It wasn’t the plethora of girls on YouTube proclaiming that the Lord revealed to them how it’s defined & to stop wearing it. It wasn’t when I discovered the book of Enoch recorded that a spirit taught women in Earth how to apply makeup. It wasn’t that I felt insecure without it.
I simply started my no makeup journey when I had a skin reaction for weeks that led me to avoid putting anything on my skin.
I’ll admit, it was rough. I felt bare & unattractive. I believed color made me beautiful. I also felt if I didn’t fill in my brows, I looked weird and translucent.
I discovered later, the no make up movement that Alicia Keys started & was intrigued. Then I got married & wanted to look attractive without having to rush to the bathroom to apply lots of makeup. Next, I stumbled on a girl on YouTube doing a no make up look tutorial and thought, that’s what I need to explore.
Since I don’t feel like makeup is a way to mask or conceal myself (the nature of femininity is to fully be yourself) & I don’t apply tons & tons of it on myself (I like a natural look without drama), I don’t feel convicted when wearing it, but I do believe God is leading me to wear less of it and to accentuate a more naturally created beauty. He may in the future, ween me off of it. As the preparer that He is, I know by that time, if that’s His calling for me, I will be completely prepared and rested in a totally natural self.
How do you feel about wearing or not wearing make up?
