Maybe it is a backlash against all the extreme makeup selfies on Instagram, or the obviously retouched faces on magazine covers and in editorials, or maybe it is just that the trend pendulum is swinging in the opposite direction, but whatever the reason, makeup-free faces are having a moment – a BIG moment. And it is about time. Celebrities who are comfortable in their own skin are posting gorgeous and realistic selfies sans makeup and the look is nothing short of revolutionary and refreshing on the eye. This could end up to be just another trend, but it is a good one to embrace, and so much less expensive and time-consuming than trying to imitate extreme contouring, dramatically drawn eyebrows, heavy eyeliner, and cadaver-colored lips. What a relief!
The controversy around the no-makeup trend is echoing all over twitter with one side saying that it is authentic and freeing for women, and the other side saying that whether you want to wear a lot of makeup or go bare faced should be a choice and not a trend. Both arguments are valid and it should not be a divisive issue – aren’t there enough issues to divide people than whether someone chooses to wear makeup or not??
Showing skin, wrinkles, freckles, discolorations and all does not take anything away from the beauty of these celebrities and models. In fact, it shows how remarkably beautiful they really are, without clown-like embellishment and alteration of their features. It’s time our eye became attuned once again to what women really look like and to celebrate the unique beauty of each one of us. Copying extreme makeup looks makes women look like clones and there is nothing beautiful about these false appearances. Who wants to look like a clone? Celebrities did not become famous for being like anyone else – they are unique, and they stand out from the pack for those very qualities.
This new beauty trend is gaining momentum and is not going to go away any time soon, so get on board and enjoy the freedom of being yourself, time to time. Take care of your skin and groom your brows, and start taking selfies to see what is your own best lighting condition, and then post the best shot. I dare you! Let everyone know how GORGEOUS you really are, no filters needed!
