#nomakeup #nofilter morning selfie as I get ready for the day.
☀️ 👗 ♥️ .
Makeup can be really fun and creative, but it’s also time consuming, expensive, and it can warp what we think our own faces “should” look like. Like we’re not good enough to go out into the world without enhancement. Add in the carefully posed, carefully filtered pics on social media, and we’ve got a recipe for self loathing. We compare our natural selves to other people’s carefully idealised selves, and it makes us feel like crap.
So this is me, post face washing, pre mascara. As I’m getting older, I’m growing to like my face more and worry about it less. But when it comes to photos, I’m still super likely to say “not perfect! Not good enough!” So... one shot, no coverup, no filter, taken with the light from the window, me. It’s not perfect, but I guess that’s the point 💕
