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:

Fabulous no makeup look - you really are beautiful! :smileyhappy:

Re: No makeup. Actually.

I forgot to add (and don't know how to edit a post), I absolutely love your eye color (that pale gray-blue shade has always been my favorite, probably because my sister has it and I so don't), and your brows look so groomed - when I did chemo, my brows took over my entire face; I almost went mono brow till it all fell out :smileywink:

Re: No makeup. Actually.

Thank you, my brows have fallen out 4 times! With my lashes etc. my hair is growing back while on treatment but since I started a new chemo I'm told there is a 50/60% chance they will fall out again or, I might just lose some of my hair again(I already am on top and back) which is why I wear hats everywhere except home. I'm honestly starting to just accept it. Oddly enough when I lost the hair under my under arms and legs the first time they never grew back. I won't complain about that!!!!!!LOL if I was brave enough(I'm not lol) I would post a pic without my hat, my hair that's grown back is soooooo curly that it sticks straight up and curls back. It's so funny but embarrassing at same time. My teens love messing with it lol! I really dislike the color it's coming back in and wish my lashes would grow back faster especially on the lower lash line.

 

My my eye color changes depending on what I'm wearing sometimes it's bright green .

 

thank you again, you boosted my self esteem this morning :-) 

 

 

btw are you in remission? I hope so and, hope you stay in remission. I know it can be hard after you have had treatment wondering if it will come back.etc hugs , love and health to you!

Thanks for your kind words - and I have good news about leg hair: Mine has barely grown back at all after 15 years! :smileyhappy:

<3 thank you so much! 

Re: No makeup. Actually.

I was just about to start a no makeup thread and then I saw this one, so bump bump bump!

 

I love makeup and the opportunity it gives you to be a different you every day, but some days I also just love to embrace me.  I went through a phase for months earlier this year where I didn't wear makeup at all.  

 

Today I'm mostly just lazy (and waiting for my Pulp Fiction sale palette to arrive) so I'm bare.  The only thing I slapped on was some Clinique Dramatically Different gel moisturizer because my skin is feeling crackly this morning :smileyvery-happy:

Forgot to add (and don't now how to edit post) - All you would need to look utterly top-model stunning is a dab of concelaer under your eyes and a swipe of lip balm! Your skin is absolutely perfect :smileyhappy:

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!

Re: No makeup. Actually.

1st thing I do when I get home? Take it all off :smileywink: Photo on 2014-07-02 at 18.47.jpg
