Full title: How would you look after a month with no cosmetics? We challenged one woman to ditch her entire beauty routine. The results were, to say the least, revealing...

I have resolved to forgo make-up entirely for a whole month.

I’ve gone 57 years without make-up.

I, too, have gone many years without makeup.

I only wear makeup probably 2 out of 7 days. It’s minimal use at that. I actually feel better without a lot of makeup on..

Personally, I’ve not worn makeup in years. What of it?

Outstanding commentary on this...

Till We Have Faces
To my mind, one of C.S Lewis’ Greatest works

It will break your heart,
and give it back to you both mended and much stronger

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Till_We_Have_Faces

How can we meet the Gods face-to-face
till we have faces

How can we gaze upon His Face
when we wear all these veils and the masks

At the end of your post, I was anticipating the word “thing” rather than “makeup.”

Similar story here, in high school tried eye shadow and at the end of the day it dried out my eyelids, making them wrinkly... no more of that!

If i put anything on my face i would get zits... had oily skin and still have to this day... if it says ‘contains moisturizer’ forget it.... still gives me trouble.

Angelina Jolie with and without makeup. Just search for the many pics of celeb women without makeup.

Much of the time, an actress or model is successful primarily because her facial bone structure makes a good platform for makeup.

I’d like to see what men would look like after a month without Viagra....now that would really be a letdown...

If a man is under 55 and needs Viagra, it's more likely due to being unexcited by the woman he has to sleep with, than a failure in the plumbing.

She’s actually pretty without, which is more than you can say about many of them. Still sort of exotic, looks to have some Creole ancestry.

So have I.

I mostly rely on my beard to cover the worst of it.

I wasn’t sure about the 2nd being flourescent ,, both looked “studio” to me which implies the lighting is unchanged ,, there aren’t many clues to get color temp from in both shots for a comparison .. first LOOKS hotter/whiter ,, 2nd-after shot looks more natural .. earring isn’t washed out, skin not washed out,, the teeth (if smiling) would have told us the story.. the after shot is flatter indicating a longer focal length ..

You know, without makeup you can see much more of a resemblance to her father.

That was my first thought, too.

Have read both books. C S Lewis is truly magnificent.

The picture on your right hand is not only without makeup, it has been photoshopped. The nose is entirely different, more narrow and sculpted. Other minor things have been done. But men do slaver and slobber for fakery, don't they?

I see a lot to like in Angelina-lefthand without all the professional help: she seems more vulnerable, open-faced and even cute on the left, but is a frozen, closed-off mistress on your right.

I discovered years ago that foundation makeup and face powder made my skin worse so that I needed to cover it up. I stopped using it and after a month the red spots went away and my skin looked better. Now I wear only mascara on my lashes and chapstick on my lips. For dress up I might use a touch of rouge but that's all.
