Make-Up Free Celebrities - Is This Really News?

I'm a beauty blogger, which means you can confidently assume that I like beauty products. Well, I do; a lot. For a few years I used make-up as a blanket, trying to cover up my face. As I've gotten older, and even more into make-up, I've become more confident without it. This is definitely down to me growing up and learning to be confident in my own skin - I mean, this is my face, and unless I pay a plastic surgeon loads of dosh, it ain't changing any time soon. 

What worries me is that you constantly see in magazines, online media outlets and on social media a picture of a celebrity without make-up or looking less than perfect, and the attention it gets is massive and down right derogatory. Lots of this I see being shared by friends on Facebook, mainly women, declaring "oh, look they are just like us!". Yes they are; women! Beautiful women!

As a society we have taught ourselves and others that women's face's look strange without a coat of make-up on it. The moral is, women are women even without make-up (I know, hard to believe, right?). You are just as much a woman if you haven't touched a lippy in 6 years, compared to your friend who has 256 different shades of 'nude'. 

"You only wear make-up to get attention"
"You must be ugly if you wear make-up"
"Men must be the most attractive sex as they don't have to wear make-up"

You've probably heard these at some point, and quite frankly, they're horse shit. Whether you decide to wear make-up or not, and for whatever reason you wear it, don't let anyone shame you for your choice.

  1. Such a lovely article! I always feel 'incomplete' next to people living the stereotypical student lifestyle, something of a prude because I'm not drinking and partying; it feels so sucky! I've learnt that categorising people just makes me feel sad and I am learning to see everyone as individuals, without the label of age or gender or anything :D I love your blog! xx
