Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice weekend, I've seen a few bloggers doing this project bare all and I think it's great because I've always thought beauty is from within and I know a lot of people like myself feel insecure without makeup on but saying that I thought I would bare all even though I find it hard. It all started with Megan's post so go read her's and she looks gorgeous without makeup.
So here's my picture no makeup, no editing, no nothing, I can't believe I am bare faced on the Internet. My skin has always been reasonably okay, the only time I get spots is that time of the month, so I am grateful for that and seeing the picture now I feel a bit more confident in myself that maybe I can go out without makeup on.
I've always loved makeup and started experimenting more with makeup when I was 15, I loved being able to transform myself with makeup and it helped hide my insecurities within myself. At school or college I would always wear makeup sometimes full face and I never went bare face because I was so unconfident and makeup made me feel better about myself. I was so insecure that anytime I left the house I would have to at least wear a bit of makeup.
I am slightly more confident in that if I'm just visiting family or just going to the shops then I will now go without makeup and I have realised that people aren't paying attention if you have makeup on or not and I used to always think that people would notice and stare at me if I didn't have makeup on. If I am going to a public place such as college or a shopping centre then I wouldn't feel comfortable going without makeup on because of so many people and I think I look better and presentable with makeup on.
I think TV and magazines have made it harder for us girls to go out without makeup as most celebrities will wear full face of makeup and when they don't wear makeup they have been judged on the way they look. It is seen as the normal for girls to wear makeup and then it makes most of us girls feel like we have to wear makeup and feel uncomfortable if we aren't wearing it.
I don't think I'll every feel completely comfortable without makeup but I'm getting more comfortable in not wearing it. I hope other girlies who read this will go makeup free and show we can go without wearing makeup.
