5 Lazy Excuses You Use To Justify Sleeping With Makeup On

Ladies, admit it – you’ve all been there. You come home from a long day, and the last thing you want to do is take off your makeup. Your bed is calling your name. I get it, and I’m just as guilty. I mean, what’s the worst that can happen? In a recent interview, Kim Kardashian advocated sleeping with makeup on, so that has to mean it’s okay, right? I know I keep telling myself this because lately, I somehow always end up the next morning with last night’s makeup on. Here are my top dumb excuses to make myself feel better about leaving my makeup on while I sleep.

1. “The bathroom is too far.”
Look, my bedroom is on the second floor and my bathroom is on the first. When I calculate the distance from my room to the sink, I figure one night is okay.

2. “You’re not wearing THAT much make up.”
I am way too guilty of saying this to myself when I look in the mirror before going to sleep. I mean, what’s a bit of eye makeup and foundation going to really do to damage my skin?

3. “I’ve had such a long day, I can’t even handle taking off makeup right now.”
Between school, work, volunteering, and attempting a social life – long days are a daily reoccurrence in my life. When I’m tired, I can justify anything as long as I can crawl into my bed.

4. “Can he handle it?”
I can barely handle seeing myself after a rough night, letting that be a guy’s first sight in the morning seems cruel … especially if we’ve only been together for a month.

5. “I’m drunk”
This is a weekly occurrence, and is self-explanatory. The last thing I’m thinking about after a night out is my makeup, I’m just celebrating the fact that I’m home.

All these justifications lead up to one conclusion – I am a lazy girl. It’s one of my worst habits that I need to break ASAP. No matter what Kim says, I don’t want to deal with the massive breakouts that inevitably follow this habit. Ladies, it’s time to stop – my trick is to now keep a pack of makeup wipes next to my bed so all these excuses cannot be used. If you’re not going to wash your face, at least take the makeup off! You’ll thank yourself in the morning.
