It’s no secret that artist Alicia Keys is the queen of the #nomakeup revolution among her Hollywood counterparts. Since her public essay, she has been makeup-free both on and off the red carpet. It’s no wonder more celebrities have taken note and followed her lead with a list of reasons why makeup as part of a daily routine are both harmful and tedious to the penned overall skin regimen of women in general. Admittedly, a simple swipe of mascara adds an instant wake up to tired eyes, and a tiny sweep of lip-gloss can make even the gloomiest of days seem brighter – but have we become so reliant on makeup to actually appreciate our own simple beauty?
Perhaps it’s time to be fearless, to embrace the beautiful unique features we all as women (and men) possess. This tiny revolution can make a world of a difference for the future of makeup industries as well as the confidence in young women and aged alike. Think about all the money you’d save, time you’d have, and imagine the feeling of clean and simple skin. Although making the shift to remove the entire mask of makeup we have come accustomed to (think contouring and false lashes) it does have an aspect of freedom attached to it. Wake up – wash and go!
For now, I will start in baby steps – not sure I’m ready to ditch the foundation just yet, but I think for this year, 2018, I will try at least to simplify my beauty routine and perhaps even source natural beautifiers too. Vegetable pigments sound interesting.
Need some inspiration yourself? Check out these gorgeous celebrities who have let go of their makeup and opted for more freedom from the mask for a more natural look.
This talented beauty is known for her simple regimen of face cleanser, and dry shampoo. She’s even reportedly attested that she never blow-dries or colours her hair either – simple, stunning and radiant natural beauty!
The No Makeup Queen herself is now a spokeswoman for the anti-makeup shift. Alicia Keys has not been spotted wearing anything other than perhaps Vaseline on her lips for the past few years and we think she looks amazing!
Even before the No Makeup revolution was ‘trending,’ actress Shailene Woodley was gracing red carpets without a stitch of makeup on – and she looked fabulous!
Her secret? No foundation! Gwyneth is known for swapping out the foundation and going completely naked on her face with the exception of eyes and lips – where she opts for natural based ingredients of course. Just gorgeous!
Sure she spends most of her time on-screen outfitted with contour makeup- shiny highlights and lip plumping gloss, but on her time off she is almost always makeup-free. Both stunning with and without makeup if you ask me.
America’s sweetheart attributes her graceful ageing to a good healthy diet – she is very proud of her wrinkles and age spots and regularly wears her skin as a badge of honor. She even wrote a book about it! Inspirational!
I'm so excited to continue the conversation because learning that you can age well, will actually help you age better. If you understand how your body works then you can take action to help keep it in the best possible condition so it can carry you through a long and beautiful life. | Read my full post at www.OurBodyBook.com @thebodybook #linkinprofile #longevitybook #knowledgeispower #everyoneages
