Today's post is a little bit different. I have been thinking long and hard lately about Beauty, makeup and the way society views people.
Programmes like The ugly side of beauty are partly responsible for triggering off memories of myself when i was younger and also the question:
Are we more attractive, confident etc when we are wearing a face full of makeup ?
Do we as beauty bloggers contribute to young girls feeling insecure about there looks if they dont have the in product or wearing this months must have items ?
I don't wear makeup constantly but i do feel more confident when i am wearing makeup. However i don't see this makes me an insecure person, in fact i think I'm quite confident.
I think its just like a man putting on a business suit which makes him feel smart. I imagine its a similar feeling of added confidence.
When i was younger i would never leave the house without makeup on but as i have got older i am a lot more comfortable with myself and i actually love the feel of freshly washed skin. I enjoy taking my makeup off at the end of the day. My friends have all seen me without makeup although it's rare i dont have a little something on my face.
Another thing that really annoys me is when people say to me you don't need to wear all that makeup. I know i don't need to wear it. Nobody needs to wear it but i like it, i enjoy trying new looks, i think i look nicer with makeup on and its my face, my choice.
Makeup is an expression of who we are. I don't turn around and say to them well you do need some makeup on? Although sometimes i would like to ha.
Anyway my challenge is for my lovely fellow bloggers to BARE ALL. I mean just take a little photo without any make up on. ( Shock Horror )
For some of you it will be easy but for most of us i think it's a little bit scary so i will be interested to see who? if anybody will participate.
The rules are as follows:
1. Take a photo of yourself with a Bare face and post it on your blog.
2. Write a few sentences about how you feel doing this challenge.
3. comment here and leave a link to your post as i am really interested in reading your thoughts.
So here we go:
This is me. I feel slightly apprehensive about this post i don't dislike myself without makeup but i just prefer how i look with makeup.
Will people think this challenge is a good idea or will they be horrified at the thought of people seeing them in this way?
