Liberate your face and go makeup-free!

Yes, you heard me, MAKEUP-FREE. Aside from applying sunblock to your skin, going makeup-free is the ultimate bestest thing you can do for your complexion, your self-confidence and even your sense of self-worth…..


For some of us women folk, this maybe easier said than done. Personally i’m not a huge makeup wearer, as currently my lifestyle doesn’t really call for it (but when I do it’s a tinted moisturiser and a lip-gloss). I do however, believe there is a time, a place and a purpose for makeup. Especially when you need to look and feel a bit more slick and polished, whether that's’ for work, going on a date, attending a wedding etc, but not everyone wants to look like a Kardashian before leaving the house.

So ask yourself, how long have you been using and wearing makeup? Since those awkward teenage years perhaps? Do a quick add up in your head…..how many years have you been applying an array of synthetics, fillers and chemicals to your face? And as we grow older we tend to add more products to help our aging/problematic skin.


Quick question. How many of you go makeup free and if so how often?


It's worth training ourselves to stop periodically and take stock of what and how much we are using. Go back to the bare minimum and add back what is essential. You’ll not only free up space in your bathroom and handbag but also gain back precious time!


Here are some key benefits or reasons to go makeup free:


  • You learn to love your flaws. I actually don’t like using the word ‘flaws’ as truth be told, that's’ not what they are. Your freckles, dimples, moles/beauty spot, birthmarks - they are what make you - YOU! They are part of who you are. And besides, no one actually pays attention to your tiny imperfections except you! You should stop treating them like “flaws” and think of them as your “specialty.”
  • Confidence doesn’t come from makeup, it comes from yourself. Going makeup free is just another small step towards making peace with your body image and your soul. You will also be sending a positive message out to other women and young girls, especially if you have daughters. Seeing Mum going without having to wear makeup on all the time will help them to believe it's not essential.
  • Makeup is a wonderful tool, but the real thing is just as gorgeous. I’m not saying to avoid makeup altogether, but to choose makeup that is not just beneficial for your skin but also cruelty free

We are all sold and taken in by media and society’s idea of beauty. And as Meghan Trainor put it in her hit “ All About That Bass”....

”I see the magazines working that Photoshop

We know that s*#t ain't real

Come on now, make it stop

If you got beauty beauty just raise 'em up

'Cause every inch of you is perfect

From the bottom to the top”

There is a long list of models or celebrities who are selling or endorsing makeup or fragrance, telling us who we are isn't quite as good as who they could make us into.

The good news is now the tide is turning and celebrities are embracing and endorsing the no makeup look (#nomakeupselfie). From Alicia Keys to our very own Lorde, the list goes on, because it’s important that we don’t rely on makeup in order to accept the reflection staring back at us.

We would love to know your thoughts and if you plan on going makeup free.

For me personally, Valentine's Day is such a 'have', as we are all bombarded by the ‘lovey-dovey’ marketing that raises expectations and has turned a sweet, simple day into a commercial success at the expense of singles’ and couples’ everywhere. Why do we need a day to be told to appreciate someone you love? A crush, friends, family, or yourself?.....so why not use Valentine’s Day as a reminder to show that you appreciate them being in your life.
