I’m so excited to be teaming up with and PEOPLE magazine to go make up free for today’s post. I think embracing our natural beauty is so important and such a beautiful expression of who we are. I know that sounds so cheesy, but within your natural beauty and imperfections you find individuality. I know it can be intimidating, at least for me somedays it is. I’ve caught myself being like yikes I need make up today 🙂 but I’ve found simple things like a great moisturizer make such a difference. I love to help with redness so you don’t have to worry about skipping foundation because there really is nothing better for our skin and confidence then just letting your natural beauty shine. Here’s why:
- I love makeup, but sometimes it can distract from (or cover up completely!) your natural features that make you unique and beautiful. Whether it’s those freckles or bare lashes, sometimes it’s those things you try to cover up that make you beautiful.
- Just because you might think you look better with a face full of makeup doesn’t mean everyone agrees. Cody has always preferred when I go bare-faced, so when I do tone down my beauty routine he’s always the first to notice.
- The no-makeup beauty look is everywhere right now and hands down the one look everyone can master! With the fresh face look having such a moment right now, it’s the best time to embrace your natural beauty and skip your makeup routine altogether. Being happy with who you are and letting yourself shine through is the key to confidence. Ok ok, I know it sounds cheesy and like something you would read on your local newspaper’s horoscope, but it’s true! Learn to love yourself and everyone else will too. True beauty starts within 🙂
