Girls Who Dare to Bare

Girls Who Dare to Bare: The idea is that one should be comfortable showing his or her skin for how it truly is. before all of the cosmetics we plaster onto our skin. Do we really need it? Who says we must attain perfection? Perfection isn't real.

Alyse of Integrating Alyse has begun posting "Girls Who Dare to Bare," a weekly feature that shows three lovely ladies who have shown their true beauty, sans makeup. Alyse has wonderful words to say about it, so check out her post.

So, without further adieu, my contribution to GWDTB.

Before

I'm bitchy pmsing and should have more breakouts appearing soon, so I decided to showcase my bare skin before this happens. As you can see, I have a few blemishes and general unevenness (did I just make up a word?) on my skin. I also have a bit of rosiness on my chin and lower cheeks.

After

A bit more put together, though not much different! My blemishes are covered and my complexion looks a bit more even. I'm a natural-look kinda gal, so sorry there's no dramatic makeup shown here.

Products used (from start to finish):
 Benefit Boiing concealer in 01
Cover Girl fresh complexion pocket powder in 605 Ivory
No7 Cheek Color in 12 Coral Flush
Cover Girl eye enhancers (no idea of the name, but the color is a light brown)
Bare Escentuals Big Tease mascara in dark chocolate
Burts Bees beeswax lip balm

I think all three pics are pretty cute! I'm not a believer in too much make-up unless there is a red carpet in sight...

Wooo, you are a brave woman... I don't look that much different with/without make-up either, but I absolutely refuse so leave me house without concealer, foundation, and blush on. You are very beautiful both ways!
