Me Without Makeup
Written by Project Inspired | September 8, 2011
This is me without makeup, my natural hair, and wearing a t-shirt. I never wear makeup, but sometimes I’m tempted to because I just think I’m not pretty without it. Same goes with straightening my hair every day, and wearing a “cute” outfit. I feel like I’ll never be considered pretty if I don’t do these things, and sometimes I gaze into the mirror with despair, disappointed by what I see. My teeth are uneven and I have the annoying characteristic of getting bags under my eyes, along with a minor acne problem. To make matters worse, I go to a school where it seems as though most of the girls walk around looking like supermodels. I feel different and…yes…ugly. But looking at these pictures on this website, and the other girls that are brave enough not to wear makeup, I realize that I’m not different. Those wanna-be ‘models’ are different. They’re fake. I’m not–I’m embracing my God-given beauty, because this is how He meant me to look and He must have a reason for it. Honestly, I believe that makeup should be outlawed; because then guys wouldn’t be misled by outer “beauty” and would have to go on more than a pretty face.
