No makeup. Actually.

I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too.

 

None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm).

 

This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower.

 

Anyone else brave enough? :smileywink:

Urbie, you're so pretty!!

 

I wish I was as flawless as you and could pull off no makeup like that!! Your skin is sooo fresh and flawless!

Thanks jenjendoitagain!  I pretty much only buy skincare, so I guess my addiction is paying off? :smileywink:

So pretty! My face looks like it's out to win the award for Most Splotchy of Them All when I'm sick. And where do I sign up for gorgeous hair like yours?!

Urbie

Re: No makeup. Actually.

Aw, thanks MlleCC- I actually desperately need a haircut, it's getting a little too long to handle :smileyhappy:

Wow. If this was taken when you were sick you look awesome. (I look like a zombie when I'm sick)

 

If not well you look great then too. The lighting makes your skin and face in general amazing.

I kind of felt like a zombie for 3 days, this was towards the end of it.  And yes, thank god for nice sunshine, it makes everything look a little better.

Looking good girl, even if you were sick!

Re: No makeup. Actually.

You're in luck! I couldn't even be bothered to fix up my hair or put my contacts on today! It was a 'Bake in the kitchen all day' kind of snow day.

You look great! You are one of the only people so far in this thread I know what look like even with the make up on from the what are you wearing thread. I think you look fantastic as is!

Re: No makeup. Actually.

feeling envious of your brows. I wish mine would grow out better.

And your lips are like the perfect color. And I think I have a pair of glasses similar to these.

Wow, thank you so much! For the longest time, I really thought my brows were too bushy, but I didn't know how to shape them or thin them out at all. Now I don't really pluck them much at all! Just some out of control hairs here and there every week or so. It's something I've grown to appreciate -- like my lips, I never really thought about it, but they're pretty pigmented despite being a little thin.

 

Next time, I'll pull out my blue glasses. If I take another pic with my glasses on! :smileyhappy:

MlleCC

Re: No makeup. Actually.

Teach me how to take pretty pictures with glasses on!

Re: No makeup. Actually.

I think ladymeag covered the bases pretty well! I think she knows what she's doing better than I do. Natural light is best (you can see a glare in my glasses because my living room has like four windows on three different walls). Otherwise I just... snapped my iPhone, lol!

ladymeag

Re: No makeup. Actually.

Indirect natural light is key, that way your eyes aren't strained (creating the very flattering crazy-eye look) or forcing open against a squint from a bright light or creating glare from overhead lights. I can't take pictures with my glasses off for my life - I can't see well enough get the picture right. 

Urbie

Re: No makeup. Actually.

Ditto MlleCC, when I wear my glasses I look so crazy in pictures!

Re: No makeup. Actually.

Looking good as always! I have to wear glasses too, but usually refuse to in photographs unless it's a candid shot. Selfies though? I remooooove the specs!

LariTheLoud

Re: No makeup. Actually.

These are my really old glasses, too! I have a newer pair but they feel quite loose on my face, and when I handle cooking/a hot oven I just wear this ancient pair because they stay on better. I'd rather not lose my glasses in the oven or into a hot pan!

 

I feel ya, though. Whenever I go out of the house, I always wear my contacts. I want to emphasize my eyes, not hide them behind specs. :smileyhappy:
