Has anyone ever been in this situation, and what did you do? This Friday I am going on a retreat with some other women from my church. Three of us will be sharing a room. I am soooo anxious about taking my make-up off at night. I think that after I wash my face I will go to bed with a little concealer on, or powder. This is so bad that I am stressing out like this. I can't even focus on the real reason for going.
Yes I have been in this situation, though I try to avoid it when there is a breakout. Wait until the very last possible moment to remove your makeup. Maybe when they are already in bed and the lights are half out.
Don't stress too much about it. We are all much harder on ourselves than we ought to be. If it is a church group, the others should be a bit more understanding on the difficulties others have to endure.
dont worry, you'll get through one night of this fine...try living in a college dorm like me! i hate it when i get bad breakouts...i dont even have my own bathroom~ i have to share it w/25 other perfect faced girls! grrrr...
I've been in the same boat as you many times. It's awful I know. I had a friend stay the night (not b/c I wanted her to but she had no place to stay at the time) and I actually waited up till 3am to take my makeup off and go to bed. I was so scared she would walk in and see me. I made sure I got up extra early to 'put on my face' and it was a struggle but I got through it. The point of my story is that you're not alone! I also want to say that wearing a little makeup at night might cause more trouble than you think. I woke up with a load of new zits one time wearing mine to bed and boy was it bad. Unless you use mineral makeup than I heard it's fine and wont hurt. But I agree with LookingForHealth, just wait until the lights are out! Good luck on your retreat, Hope you have a good time.
Ohmygod you are so not alone with this worry... I thought I was! So many times I have had this problem it seems ridiculous! I remember one time back in high school at a camp I stayed up sooooo late because we had to use communal showers and sleep in group cabins and I didnt want anyone to see my un-make-upped face.. I went to take a shower really late and a teacher sprung me and yelled at me for going there so late and made me go to bed without letting me have the shower.. the next day I didnt know what to do b/c the showers were packed and there was nowhere to wash up and fix my face for the day, this girl asked me why my face was so shiny(!!!) Arrrggg I was so embarrassed. Overnight things suck when your face isnt up to scratch and everyone else seems gorgeous!?? Good luck maky dont worry too much.
I've definitely gone through the same thing, it's nice to know I'm not alone either! I agree with everyone who has said to wait until the last minute to wash your face. I've also gone to bed with concealer on a few occasions... I just pick the worst spots and cover only those areas, not go to bed with makeup on my entire face; that way the worst is covered, but it doesn't cause breakouts in any new areas.
