Bloggers w/o makeup

ok here goes nothing ...
When I heard of bloggers w/o makeup I thought ..hmm not my cup of tea, but I kept thinking about it! After giving it some thought I said "why the heck not?" I sorta cheated b/c my cute baby girl is in the picture to distract & I didn't take a new pic just grabbed a makeup free shot that I already had...w/e ..The premise is still the same..my face is NAKED! 
   I've been thinking about this quite a bit for the last 24 hours or so & it's kinda odd that I do wear as much makeup as I do & as often as I do ( everyday pretty much!) Most crunchy mamas like myself don't really use much but, maybe I wear so much b/c of the way I was raised? Who knows? I can tell u that my 11th, & 12th birthday parties were both Mary Kay parties thanks to my mother. I'm not sure if she thought I needed makeup or just wanted me to use it better *shrugs*  I was a VERY awkward pre-teen & towered over my peers by a long shot! I stood 5'6" already at 11 & by 12 , I was 5'8"..I had some pretty epic self esteem issues b/c of this & pretty much felt like an ogre next to other kids my age. It was hard not to feel huge & weird so I tried to make up for it by using make up & trying to make myself look better..eventually I obviously gave up on fitting in & let it roll  .& let me tell you that I went thru some pretty fancy stages w/ my makeup & really wish that I had pictures handy to give you a laugh! When I was about 14 I used black eyeliner & LOTS of it..I basically had raccoon eyes ..I don't know what I was thinking..soon after I went to blue & black lipstick..ahh the goth stage..Already being pale as all get out & obsessed w/ vampires by 15 I was using pure white liquid makeup w/ white face powder..funny thing is ..it didn't look that different from my skin tone at the time. Eventually I got my act together & now can do my makeup in 5 minutes  & not look like a scary weirdo ..at least no one has mentioned it yet ...anyone got something to tell me ?

You look great without makeup! I never wear makeup because 1) I am paranoid I will put it on wrong and look like and idiot; and 2) I am paranoid of all the chemicals in makeup.

Mrs. Macready, thank you very much !! I'm following u now & I entered your contest ..hope that I'm not too late!
& mom & kiddo- I love your blog..I can't wait to use some of your ideas when my LO is older..she's going to love them! & yes I do worry about the chemicals so I only use good make-up ..no animal testing..Higher quality , hyper allergenic stuff..but not too pricey..physicians formula makes pretty good stuff & they actually do organic make up too:D
