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:

While we're on the topic of hair, did you ever try the Wen?

Re: No makeup. Actually.

yes I did! I liked it--it didnt weigh down my hair like I was afraid it would.  Good stuff!

KB, I just wanted topop in and say that if you ever decide to get dressed up for a convention or Halloween, please please please be Princess Merida from Disney's Brave! All you'd have to do is go nuts with a tiny curling barrel and ta-da!!!!

This was me during a late night chat with some ladies from BT this past week:

 

 

 

I can explain the hair: I was trying to be a unicorn! Also, I was drinking a bit. :smileyvery-happy:

Now that's a real fun look :smileyhappy:

Re: No makeup. Actually.

Your pictures are always so tiny (slightly bigger than a thumbnail), so I picture you as tiny.  For all I know, you could be 5'10".

Re: No makeup. Actually.

@killahbabe, love your look!

 

Question: what color are your eyeglass frames? Reason I'm asking is I'm considering going bolder on my eyeglass frames (a matte violet in my case). I'm wondering if colored frames end up being limiting in some way (or are ones that a person can get tired of).

killahbabe

Re: No makeup. Actually.

DiVWA, my frames are actually blue. They've also got cute pinkish-purple gems on the side and then are pinkish-purple on the inside. I don't find colored glasses to be limiting at all because they always add a pop of color to my outfit (although I'm typically wearing bright colors anyway). Bonus: I always get compliments on them because most people choose neutrals so mine really stand out in a sea of black and brown.

Re: No makeup. Actually.

Thanks KB and Zpsid91. I'm really liking these purple glasses, but these will be the first colored ones I've gotten in years! I appreciate your input! I have S&P hair with lots of darker brown in it but also whites and the purple just really seems to brighten my face. I wear a lot of purple as well as blue, green, some brown, etc. too so I know that purple looks good on me.


Here I am with no makeup, very large pupils from my eye-exam dilation test, and these purple glasses. Do they look okay?

Re: No makeup. Actually.

I love purple glasses, very nice with your complexion. Good shape too...go for them!

Zpsid91

Re: No makeup. Actually.

I really like those!!! I think they complement your face very nicely!! And you rock that S&P hair :smileyhappy:

 

Also, the dilation exam - by far the worst part of the whole I have to wear eyeglasses thing!

DiVWA

Re: No makeup. Actually.

TY Zpsid91. I do wish the underside/inside of these frames were a different color (like yours are) but it's nice to find most of what I want in one pair so I can forgive this.

jozkid

Re: No makeup. Actually.

From another graying lady: I think you look awesome! Nice color.

 

(Don't you hate that dilation thing? I have an appt next Saturday. Ugh.)

DiVWA

Re: No makeup. Actually.

TY jozkid, Are you going gray or still coloring? If you're letting yourself go gray now, good for you. If not, I understand but just know that there are other things to do besides sit in the colorist's chair. :smileywink:

 

I can't stand the dilation. I wanted to get these glasses today but I didn't trust myself with not seeing well. I figured that it's better to go back when I can see, since the technician tries to place them in the best spot for seeing. My pupils (and eyesight) are just now starting to get back to normal.

jozkid

Re: No makeup. Actually.

Nope, no color for me. Nothing against it — I'm just too cheap and lazy right now. :smileyvery-happy:

 

I used to color back when I wasn't gray, just for fun. But, I just don't want to get caught up in the touch-up thing now. I don't have nearly enough time to get in to have that done every month. although my hairdresser mentioned lowlighting if I felt like jazzing it up a bit.

Jozkid, yes coloring gets so tiresome. Good for you! Are you liking your hair?
