Well, of course I have eyes! But since the last experiment was "No Brows" I wanted to keep the format consistent. So, to be specific, I chose to forgo my eye makeup for Part II of my Missing Makeup Experiment. This was the result:
Hmm...not bad, actually! A few years ago, I used to feel so naked without eye makeup. I was self-conscious of my small, almond-shaped eyes. As I've gotten a little older (and maybe wiser, I hope) I've begun to feel more comfortable in my skin and am appreciating my natural features. Sure, I may not have those large, lush-lashed doe-eyes that are often coveted, but I can see pretty well through mine (20/20 vision) and my husband doesn't seem to mind staring deeply into them, so I really can't complain. I also think, personally, that going bare-eyed gives me a fresh, youthful look.
I later did a simple, smoky eye so that you could see the comparison:
Goodness! I think I kind of surprised myself. Is it me, or do I almost look like two different people? The eye makeup definitely changes the mood and attitude of the look. I went from girl to woman just like *that*! What a fun transformation! :D I think I like it both ways. What I do will just depend on my mood. Bottom line: I love my eye makeup, but I'm fine without it. Shadow application is probably one of the more time-consuming aspects of my makeup regimen, so it's good to know that if I'm in a pinch, I can leave it and still look alright.
Hope you all enjoyed the post and have a great night!
