Remember that little rant I had last week about embracing your natural beauty? Well I’ve decided that I want to continue that by doing a post every week about natural beauty. The idea is that at least once a week, I will do a post where I only wear only one item of makeup (or none, depending on how I'm feeling). Today is the first one. I got up this morning, washed my face, put on moisturizer and lipstick, and I was set to go! How liberating is that!?!
I really think that the general standard for beauty in our society is really damaging. Even among the blogging community, who are the epitome of honestly in the fashion world, a lot of the blogs that do really well, are written by sweet darling girls that 99.9% of girls in America will never look like, nor should. So. Here is to us girls of all shapes and sizes. I'm a 140 pound, healthy, happy girl who doesn't need makeup to be beautiful. Doesn't that just make your heart sing?
So I'll be posting an "I'm a natural Beauty" post every, and talking about healthy body image. I'm thinking about making it into a weekly link back post where others can join me in shedding their masks if anyone is interested. Which you should be. Because we can change the world gals. So grab a button, and spread the word.
Ps. I created a link page! Check it out here and lets get linked up!
