Queen of the Quarter Life Crisis "Honestly, it's scary [to go without makeup]. At 23, I got cystic acne on one side of my face and my world was rocked. I had to start wearing actual foundation to cover my pimples, and I was completely miserable until I found a foundation that I actually liked [bareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation]. About two years later my acne started to clear up, but shortly after that I started to notice my cheeks were always flushed. Hello rosacea, nice to meet you. At this point I still rely on lightweight foundation [Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF 15] to cover my redness, and I'm admittedly super self-conscious to go out bare-faced. I usually only go makeup free when I'm at home. With that said, life is too short to worry about small imperfections and I try to tell myself that when I start to get embarrassed."
