    I am 19 and have been wearing make-up since 12. Other than a few “lazy” or busy days here and there I have worn make-up everyday. I think the longest I have ever been without make up was a week and even then I curled my lashes. I am giving up make-up because vanity is a sin I deal with daily. I want to be free from thinking that I am not complete until I spend 10 minutes in the bathroom “fixing” my face. I don’t want to feel as though I have to enhance myself. I can’t wait to look in the mirror and find myself complete and beautiful, FINISHED even without having to put stuff on my face. I’m excited for the lessons God is about to show me, I know it won’t be easy but I’m grateful. THANK YOU for writing this and sharing your experience. Many of my friends laughed when they heard I was giving make-up up for lent as though it is something that is easy since they are giving up dietary things… I know God put this in my heart. Thanks again for making me feel like I’m not alone. May God bless you!
