One of my favorite blogs to read is Katie’s. Yesterday she posted a challenge. A no makeup challenge.
I thought this was such a good idea because it really sends out a strong message, and kind of reminded me of Operation Beautiful.
I mean, I love wearing makeup. But I can do without, and I usually do during the summer time. But even if I do wear makeup, it’s not much because I like that “natural look”.
I have extremely sensitive and pale skin, so I would look a bit ridiculous with caked-on makeup!
And how about a picture where not only am I not wearing makeup, but I really need a shower? 😉
So will you all follow me & katie and post your own make-up less photos?
And I want to emphasize on something Katie said, “This is meant to be fun, but there’s an important message behind it: Society expects women to maintain a certain image; to put on make-up, paint our nails, curl our hair, shave our legs, pluck our eyebrows, wear high heels… Did I miss anything? How is this fair when men aren’t expected to do any of these things?”. She’s so right!

Question: Do you wear makeup or do you go everyday without it? Do you think this “Challenge” has a good message behind it?
