We Swapped Makeup Routines For A Week And Hated Every Second Of It
This is what happens when a makeup lover and makeup hater swap morning routines for seven long days.
Hello world, we're Tan and Gyan. These two selfies show our faces in their usual state.
As you can see, one of us doesn't normally wear makeup and the other one fucking loves it.
For some insane reason, we decided to see what would happen if we swapped makeup routines for a week. It was, well, interesting.
The first step was trading makeup routines. For Tan, this meant taking a lot of notes.
It was all a lot to take in tbh.
Tan's routine on the other hand, is much simpler.
And it was go time. Gyan went through three makeup wipes taking her face off, while Tan took her time trying to get it all just right.
The first few days of the challenge were full of surprises. Like how annoying – and time consuming – it is taking your makeup off before bed every night.
And how delightful it is not having to worry that you're going to stamp makeup on anything and everything you touch.
Halfway through the challenge we checked in to see how each other were going.
One of the most interesting parts of the week were the reactions we got from friends and family.
Tan had the opposite reaction. Out of about 50 encounters through the week, only one was positive.
By the time the final day of the challenge rolled around we were both literally so over the whole thing.
We were ready to go back to our normal-faced selves.
In the end, we both realised we'd actually learned a lot about the way our appearance helps us shape our identities.
In conclusion, do what makes you feel good about yourself – whether that means wearing a shitload of makeup or none at all.
