A few women who love to wear makeup have decided to try to go without makeup for a full week, to see if it changes the way they feel about themselves.
In a new video for BuzzFeed, Jen, Freddie, Chantel, and Safiya explained why they love wearing makeup. Their reasons include finding makeup application fun, putting it on to look good in selfies, and because of skin issues when they were younger.
“It’s fun seeing the ‘best,’ ideal version of yourself,” Chantel said.
“It’s a choice that you personally make,” Safiya said.
“If you decide that you don’t want to show people what you’re under eye bags look like, you don’t have to.”
As you can see in the video, the girls found it difficult at the start, but began to get more confident as the week went on.
At the end of the week, they talk about how they felt going make-up free and what it taught them about themselves.
“Sadly, truthfully, I think people do judge other people on their appearance. I don’t give a shit if you see my face without makeup,” Jen said.
“I think slowly but surely we’re getting towards the point where women’s aren’t expected to look or act a certain way,” Chantel said.
We know you’ll agree that all of the women looked absolutely amazing make-up free!
