Today I woke up feeling rushed to get going, so I had very little time to get ready for work. I almost always put on a little bit of makeup when I go out but I guess I got distracted today and ran out without any. I only realized it when I looked in the mirror at my office. At first I thought, “uh-oh,” I won’t be comfortable with the way I look, since I’m so used to my face with a little blush, eyeliner and mascara on. But, when I looked more closely, I realized I didn’t really look that different. It used to be that I thought makeup was essential, like brushing my teeth and combing my hair. But maybe as I’ve gotten older, it doesn’t do that much for me. Maybe less is more? That would be nice. Or maybe the makeup I use isn’t that suitable for a woman in her fifties?I wonder what other women think about that. Wouldn’t it be nice to think that there were some benefits to getting older? It’s not like I don’t care how I look, I just feel I look good enough unadorned, just as I am.
