Make-Up Free Day For Me

Ah, what a shame… I thought my dentist had bailed on me because the receptionist at his surgery knew nothing about my implant appointment tomorrow, but sadly it turns out he just hadn’t added it to the diary and it is still due to go ahead… Where’s my luck when I need it eh?!

I’ve been reading through all the information sheets that I have been given in preparation for my anesthetic tomorrow, and it turns out that I’m not allowed to wear any make up for the appointment… Not a scrap! WHAT!? I literally can’t remember a single occasion when I have left my house make-up free – We’re talking since I was about 14 years old or maybe even longer folks. I probably had perfect skin way back then, but have always been extremely insecure about my looks and guess I, like many women, have always used make-up to make me feel that little bit better about myself.

I actually rarely wear make-up around the house anymore and have taken to using BB cream (favourite so far being Dr Jart+) if I do want to make my skin look a little better during the day when I work from home. My skin reacts pretty badly to the wheat and potato foods that I shouldn’t eat (but do), and I honestly couldn’t fathom leaving the house without some sort of cover to even out my skin tone. I often hear many women say that their make up item of choice is mascara, but for me its foundation all the way and leaving the house without it has certainly taken a tiny piece of my thoughts away from the dental procedure I’m about to undertake! I guess that’s a good thing then… Wish me luck!


Do you wear make-up every day? What one product could you not live without?

    Going back to your question. Yes I do wear makeup every day but not much. If I had to choose only one thing … oh gosh that’s actually difficult! Can I have 2 please. It’ll be a mascara as I have blond eyelashes so without mascara I look very washed out. Second one would be a bb Creme.
    But if I was allowed only one and no sunnies than I’d go for a mascara! OMG! Hopefully that would make my eyes look so hypnotising no one would even look at my complexion.

    I love your blog so have nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award. It would be great if you could take a look and do it yourself. Jo x

    Hope all went well! I am a make-up every day kinda gal I’m afraid, so I am with you all the way on the ‘distress’ of facing the dentist without some slap on. Even on the days when I don’t leave the house, I just have to have a little something on my face and I always always have my brows painted on!
