Bloggers Without Makeup

Here it is folks - my part of the Bloggers Without Makeup movement today, thanks to the genius of Jodie over at Mummy Mahem.

I couldn't have been much more honest with my 30-year-old face - it was 10pm, I'd just taken my makeup off and I was under the most unflattering fluorescent light known to man.

I had spent the day driving 45 minutes to work, working all day, then spending a lovely, noisy, messy, chaotic and fun evening with my sister and her two small kids, her husband and my brother. She's moving house, so I went to see the new place, bathed the kids, had dinner, and sat around chatting and laughing before driving the 30 minutes home.

Behold:


I particularly enjoy the shininess thanks to moisturiser and the aforementioned flourescent light.

So don't be afraid - get out there au naturel and enjoy being part of the ___________ Without Makeup craze! (Enter your own noun, everybody's doing it...)

  26. I think you should consider a fluorescent light as a serious fashion accessory - it does wonders for you! Stunning. Really.

    Isn't funny how we've been taught to see shininess as a fault, when one of things I noticed while visiting all us lovely naked bloggers is how lovely and healthy and shiny everyone looked?

    Let's reclaim our shine! ;)
