Me Without Makeup
Written by Project Inspired | February 22, 2012
I am the person who is always telling people they are beautiful, no matter what. I wear makeup maybe, three to five times a week, so that is almost every other day. The only makeup I really wear is concealer, powder, blush, white eyeliner and clear mascara. I am 13, and I NEVER wear all of that together. That is all I own, but I will usually only wear two products at a time. It makes me really sad and a little creeped out when girls where a ridiculous amount of makeup, for instance, foundation that does not match their skin tone, dark eye shadow, and heavy lip gloss. When I see people like that, I go up to them, and tell them, “Everyone is beautiful without makeup, and I know you are.”
My hair is also unstyled in this picture. I usually pin my bangs back or braid my hair or something like that, but I didn’t want to do anything to it. I have never dyed my hair, though I would like too. When I was little my hair was an easy-to-see red, and it started to get darker. I think I may use a highlighting, non-permanent dye later on to get my red hair back, so I won’t damage my hair. The only products I use on my hair is shampoo and conditioner. Oh yeah, and I brush it. :p
I am a girl with very low confidence, so it took a lot of courage to be able to post this. You may not be able to see in this photo, but I have pretty mild acne that I am anxious about. It’s not terrible, but it’s there. I get acne in my T-zones (Chin, nose and forehead.) I also used to be overweight when I was younger, so I am very cautious about my diet, I make sure it is balanced. It is just SO easy to look at yourself and point all of your flaws. I am still trying to learn to love myself. I like my thick hair, blue-green eyes, my funny personality, and my kind heart.
