365 Days of Make up in One Day on Famous Model. {Video}

365 Days of Makeup in One Day:

Illusion can be romantic, true—or it can signal a lack of acceptance of our simple selves—and a caking of chemicals that’s unhealthy, and unkissable. “Stars without makeup: The real face of fame.”

Bonus: More attractive without make up? Photos of stars.

Make up: don’t do it to yourself. It’s not kissable. It’s not healthy for you, or your planet.

I can’t believe people aren’t getting the point of this which is the damage to your skin and your health. I used to wear makeup everyday until I suddenly realised what it was doing to me and that I didn’t need to wear it. I have also now only use water to wash my face as I don’t need to get all of that crap off my face and I don’t need moisturizer as I’m not stripping all the natural oils from my skin which has never looked better.

I agree. This is absurd. I enjoy wearing make up, and will continue to do so. I will also continue to brush my teeth, shave my pits, wear perfume and high heels! I will also love myself, do yoga, donate to the Wildlife Conservation Society and eat quinoa. I am ok with it, and everyone else should be too. If they're not, well then no one is making them put on foundation. I don't judge them for their decision, and I certainly don't think I am deserving of judgement for mine.

I love wearing makeup. Women have been using it to enhance their beauty for ages – just think of Cleopatra. It doesn't signal a lack of self-acceptance. It's about taking pride in your appearance. One could argue that a woman who doesn't wear makeup is afraid to be seen. To each his own.
