We all deserve to look and feel the best we possibly can but contrary to popular belief, there is far more to be said for going make-up free than wearing make-up. In fact, here are some liberating reasons why you should dare to go bare…
Free Your Face
How many times have you rubbed foundation across your face or pulled at your eyes whilst applying your eye-liner? All that pulling and tugging will slowly be stretching your skin and making you look older before your time. Feel liberated knowing that in choosing to go make-up free you are no longer speeding up the ageing process.
You Heard It Here
The answer to healthy, beautiful skin is far simpler than any YouTube make-up tutorial. According to Eve Lom, the world’s most renowned beauty guru, skin health is ‘‘all down to oxygen, water and food.’’ Make-up doesn’t make beautiful skin, a healthy lifestyle does.
Let’s Be Honest
In a study conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital, where participants were asked to rate various looks in terms of competence, likeability, attractiveness and trustworthiness, results showed that the images of women with make-up on compared to those who were make-up free, were seen as less trustworthy.
What happens when wrinkles, crow’s feet and laugh lines are as familiar as our favourite bingo hall? Free yourself from make-up now because if we can’t accept our reflections in their ‘better years’ gosh knows how we’ll feel when we really have something to complain about.
Mark Darcy Moment
Go make-up free because everyone deserves their own Mark Darcy, which is, someone who says to you ‘I like you just the way you are.’ You be that someone. For all the magazines, commercials and annoying billboards that tell us who we are isn’t quite as good as who they could make us into, by choosing to go make-up free you are accepting who you are as you are. Now ain’t that sweet!
Most girls love a bit of lippy and there is no denying that at times, wearing make-up can be fun and help make you feel good. But it’s important that we don’t rely on make-up in order to accept the reflection staring back at us.
