Today it's a brave day...
Playing along with Bloggers Without Make-up
I am not a big makeup wearer or purchaser. Never have been. As I get older, I do find I am tending to try and hide some of my blotchy patches and redness with a brush of mineral bronzer - love the stuff. You do have to be careful or else you end up looking like you have been in the fake-tan booth for a tad too long! A spot of mascara and a bit of kohl and on feeling fabby days, the RED lippy comes out!
My at-home days are spent without a skerrick of makeup, can't be bothered, but more and more I tend to face the world with a little bit of something slapped on.
I don't usually feel comfortable posting pics of myself here on my blog, I prefer to keep a teeny bit of myself to myself, but this chance to nude-up, bare-all, show the real me, seems to have hit a nerve. Taking a bare-faced photo and posting it for all the world to view feels brave and a bit scary but also strangely liberating!
As do many of us, I like to find the "best" photos of me and "tweak" them a bit before releasing for public scrutiny, but here, today no such fooling around. If I am going to bang on, as in my previous post about the dishonesty of botox users, then I need to stand up and show the real me not a cleverly edited and re-worked photo of me.
So many of us are jumping in, it's fantastic - No facade, no bullshit, no fakery, NO photo-shopping, just who we really are. Fresh-faced fabulousness all round!
U-hem...here I go!
