    I love going makeup free! I feel pretty confident as long as my outfit has a more relaxed vibe. I don’t think I could get dressed up and go without make up (a la the beautiful Alicia Keys). Good job!

    Yes! I felt the same way about makeup, worn it everyday since I was 14 (not a lot, but just enough to cover imperfections). At 27, I felt amazing after not wearing any for the month of January! Such a good challenge!

    I love this post! I’m actually giving up make-up for Lent this year. I tried to give it up a few years back, but on the first day I went to a surprise birthday party for a friend. They all wanted to take photos, but I was too embarrassed of what I look like without make-up. What a terrible mentality to have!

    This year I’m hoping to do better. Already I’m feeling okay about it, but I also haven’t really had to GO anywhere.

    I love this post! Please tell me you have mascara on (please). I spent two years in the Peace Corps. Before that, as a Texas girl, I wore makeup daily. Let me tell you, two years of practically no makeup is life changing. When I got home, I put make-up on and felt like a clown. Really. It just didn’t seem like me anymore. Now I wear a little it of makeup, but I wear it for me, not because I feel ‘undressed’ without it. I like makeup and skincare and clothes, but I don’t let it rule how I feel about myself. I remember, as a teenager, wondering how in the world a man would marry me if he saw me without makeup. Ha! I can’t believe, now, that I was ever that dependent on something outside of myself for confidence. Love this post. You have beautiful skin. :)

    I love this! We truly are our worst critic. I am completely the opposite about my make up. Typically, I only put make up on if I know that my picture will be taken or I am going out for a date night. People constantly tell me I have that natural beauty but honestly I like how my skin feels without make up and I am seriously low maintenance. Plus it’s nice to be noticed when I put the littlest of makeup on. Go makeup free! If you are comfortable in your own skin it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. Break free from the stereotype that women have to wear make up and be free in your own skin!

    I love this! All I do are my eyebrows, mascara, and the occasional eyeliner. But I would like to get to the point of not wearing any of that at all! You’ve definitely inspired me to care less about that stuff because in the end it truly doesn’t matter!
