I forgot to say--Keeping it real-No makeup [Feb. 25th, 2008|09:49 am]

[Current Mood |amusedamused]

Here's an unretouched photo of me without makeup. I did have on some lipgloss earlier in the day, but the salt water washed most of that off too as well as my hairstyle. I'm really not high on drugs in the photo, but the sand and salt were burning my eyes. You can see in this photo that I'm a natural redhead with the eyebrows and freckles. The thing I love about this photo is you can see how relaxed I am and how well rested for real.

I share it with you now.



p.s. I just managed to drink an entire glass of water! I'm on the mend.

Thanks. I like this photo. It bums me out that usually I don't have as much sleep and have more pain, so I look more pale and have dark circles than in this photo. It makes me realize that if I take better care of myself I have the potential to not just look healthier, but BE healthier.

After last week, I'm seriously considering a move to California in the future. The sunlight did me so much good.

Thanks! I'd been out snorkeling all day and it felt so good to be in the water. I wish I spent more time in the water. Maybe it's the Pisces in me?

I love being in the water. I wish I had the chance to swim in that ocean every day and read a book I love. I hope to have the health to do just that once I retire.

Gawd, you look like a fresh faced kid! I agree with the less is more comment, although you do your make-up beautifully as well.

Usually I don't get to sleep in late and stay off my leg, so I have a pale and pained look about me. Makeup really helps on most days. It's nice to see that with some rest, I'd be doing great without.

I've gone to a much lighter makeup style this year, partly to look more professional.

You really do look de-stressed and gorgeous here. Love you with makeup, too (but then I'm a makeup freak).

I am a true blonde and my eyebrows and eyelashes are completely unseeable without makeup, so there are no pictures of me (that I know of) showcasing my washed-out-ed-ness. I don't even have the great freckles to give my face some character. Its just all... one... color. WHITE! I wonder if I'd look less pale and weak if I could swim in the ocean each day. It MUST be the pisces. ;)

You should certainly try it! The Caribbean sea has magical powers.

Thank you! I have a great hairstylist lady. I think the highlights she does look really natural (although they totally aren't).

Thanks! In real life, when people guess my age, generally it's 24-28. You can see my little laugh lines.

Thanks! It does well when I'm not stressing out and missing sleep. If only I could vacation all of the time. :)

Well, to be fair, this was after 4 days relaxing on the beach. If I was always on vacation, mascara and lipgloss would be it! I'd love to see your skin on vacation as it always looks so good normally!
