I have to do this today because I am going out of town for a week and will not be available to update. This week's makeup-less Monday is brought to you by the beautiful Crystal. She wrote something to go with her picture, and I just had to include it. It really brought tears to my eyes.
As I got older, I was more comfortable not wearing much makeup or none at all. I learnt to love myself as a "WHOLE". I remember the first day I began to love myself without makeup. I was getting dressed in the morning and I just glanced in the mirror, I didn’t see a disgusting fat girl, what I saw was a beautiful young woman with so much potential. In fact, I didn’t even notice any flaws in my body, I just saw me!
I truly believe that if people look at themselves in the mirror without any negativity they would be astonished with the natural beauty they see, however, as I learnt you have to truly know yourself, love yourself from the inside out. Forget what the media says is beautiful, because in my eyes, everyone including myself is absolutely exquisite!
