A video created by Comedien Amy Schumer has spawned one of the greatest responses ever – women proudly sharing pictures of their makeup-less faces! If you have no idea what I am talking about, Amy parodied many popular boy band lyrics about how they believe women are more beautiful without makeup + shouldn’t wear any. The execution is flawless + I found myself giggling out loud while watching the video.
I am a huge advocate of being makeup free + understanding that makeup is meant to enhance what we’ve already got + is a form of self expression + creativity. There are many days I leave the house without it on, as I don’t feel like I need it to feel comfortable and confident. In the spirit of Amy’s video + the subsequent movement, here are a couple makeup free shots from this evening! Terrible lighting, post shower, face slathered in an overnight mask, and I feel great.
I encourage all of you to share your beautiful, bare faces either on social media or in a comment below! Use the Hashtag #GirlYouDontNeedMakeup to show Amy you are part of the movement+ if you’d like to let me know you came from my page use #AmberRaeBeauty as well!
