I’m going Makefree!
This May I’m going makeup free to raise money for the Human Kind Project, educating and empowering women and transforming lives and communities around the world.
So every day in May, I will venture out into the world makeup free, uncensored and unedited. It’s not about being anti-makeup, I love makeup! It’s just an opportunity to live differently for a month and celebrate the faces we were born with.
I don't envy girls growing up in the world of social media. So much emphasis on physical appearance in a world where there is so much opportunity to alter, edit and create entirely new versions of ourselves. There is nothing wrong with wanting to make ourselves feel more confident, attractive or just enjoying makeup as an art form and a form of self-expression. I have nothing against it, but there is undeniably an underlying problem of poor self-esteem in women relating to body image due to the enormous pressure put on us from every aspect of our lives these days telling us that we have to be beautiful and look a certain way in order to be successful. Hopefully Makefree May will just make us stop and consider all the other things that make us beautiful, apart from our appearance.
