BEAUTY: Project Bare All

A different beauty post today!

How do I still have tan lines?!!

There's me with no make up, and no contacts in. No editing, or cool instagram filter. Scary right?! Megan has started a campaign called #Projectbareall encouraging girls to be confident without make up. So here I am, spotty and full of scars (and tan lines clearly)

My Story: To be honest, I was never really into make up in my early teens. I could never find my shade of foundation in Superdrug. I always laughed at the black girls in my class with their foundation 2-3 shades lighter than them or the white girls who didn't blend very well. I vowed not to be them, but then I found eyeliner. I'm not sure if it was because of Pete Wentz but eyeliner became my armour. You could tell my mood by how much I had on. In the past couple of years I've become obsessed with eyebrow pencil. Even when mine and Teddys best friend comes round to watch the rugby I'm shouting 'I need to put me eyebrows on!'

The Inside: I'm definitely trying to be more confident without make up and just in general. There was a time when I let people in and ended up getting hurt often so I closed myself off. Make up and Beauty Blogging shielded me from that but I'm slowly learning how much of myself I should give away. I'm learning that I shouldn't be ashamed of all the scars I have on my face from eczema, or that I still have a moon face due to the steroids. The thought of changing my face with surgery scares the crap outta me, but that doesn't mean i'm completely happy with what God gave me.

The outside: I'm sure you're sick of me saying stuff like this but drinking water has made me a lot more confident about my skin. When I have a glass of coke the next day I have spots all around my chin and I end up getting really annoyed with myself. Since I've started juicing I can see the difference too. Exfoliate three times a week and cleanse and moisturise daily. 

I think all beauty bloogers...and girls should have the confidence to not wear make up. I'm not sure if it's cause I'm confident or just lazy but I'm starting to love not wearing make up constantly. I'd love for you to join this campaign to realise that you and every girl is beautiful in the skin they're in
