I have searched online and it seems like it's more of a challenge for women not to wear makeup to work at all. In my case, however, I'm used to leaving the house without any and I get scolded by my peers for doing so saying that I'm no longer in college and that I need to look more presentable. I started doing my brows since then and putting a little bit of gloss but that was it.
This time, I tried wearing makeup for 30 days and here's what I learned:
1. It takes time. A lot of time.
Normally I would choose sleeping in but these days, I have to wake - up at least 30 minutes earlier than usual or I will be late for work.
Make has several layers and they all need time to settle in your skin before putting on another layer of product.
Like other women in their 20’s, I’m also attracted to pretty little things that compliment my wardrobe. Then again, after entering the academic profession, I’m expected to look a certain way and colorful tassel earrings are no longer welcome. Some of the pieces I own have also worn out, oxidized and lost its original color through the years. Keeping these because they cost us money is not enough to justify the clutter.
In this post, I’ve listed a few rules I followed on figuring what to keep and let go of.
1. The good ones.
Separate the ones in good condition whether it fits your style or not. You can give it away or sell it to get something back from your investment. However, don’t throw out the tattered pieces just yet.

Let me tell something about my blogging history:
I have been blogging for around ten years and changed hosts from yahoo, to blogger and currently, weebly. Instead of rebranding my longest running blog of five years, I decided to start over again but this time, I'm more committed than I used to be.
I'm really happy to have found a community that inspire and challenge me to get out of my shell and explore my talent to my limit. I'm not as big as everyone else and still have a lot to learn but here are two practical advice I want to share to whoever is reading this:
