No Makeup Mondays

A friend from church told me she tries to go 1 day a week without makeup. This inspired me to give it a try! I love the idea b/c not only is it good for your skin to have a break from makeup, it feels so great to walk around with nothing to hide.

As a platinum blonde, my eyelashes and eyebrows appear essentially transparent. This is something I’ve always been self conscious of and for many years I wouldn’t be caught dead outside my house without, at a minimum, mascara.

More recently I’ve come to a place of accepting this is just how God created me and it’s ok not to cover it up! So once a week I’m going to try going makeup free and embrace this more natural state! Is this something you already do or would think about trying? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    great idea! I always get upset when girls put on too much make up, there is nothing to hide (and its terrible for your skin)!! You look fabulous!! embrace your true beauty!

      I never want to wear too much. Sometimes it gets to a point where it’s not enhancing your features anymore. Hopefully this will help me keep things minimal! Blessings!

    This is such a great idea! Usually weekends or when I am not doing much I don’t put makeup on – but in all honesty never really go out without it because I feel self-conscious without it! Even though I have dark hair, without mascara it doesn’t look like I have eyelashes!

    You are absolutely beautiful Star! Like, your skin is perfection! It’s sounds cliche but you really don’t need makeup – you are such a natural beauty! xo

    You look absolutely beautiful! I go without make-up about once a month but that’s only because i forget to put it on and realize when i use the restroom @ work haha! Those baby blues of yours still pop without a stitch of make-up on :)
