“I enjoy wearing make up but I've never been the kind of person to do a full face on a regular basis. However, I am self conscious having my picture taken without foundation. I'm an advocate for body positivity, so when I heard about this project I was immediately onboard! But the day before the photoshoot, I had a really bad breakout. I started to get nervous and, I'll be honest, even considered cheating and wearing a little foundation.
Then I snapped out of it! How can I call myself body positive and then use makeup as a mask to hide my natural skin? I believe makeup is a great way to express yourself and can be empowering and fun! But you should never feel ashamed of the skin you're in! So I bared my natural skin, and it felt amazing. “
