Reflecting the Positives in Me – #AtoZchallenge – N is for…

I'm a natural beauty

I’m a natural beauty

I don’t much care for make-up, never have. The only thing I put on, on occasion, is nail polish. Maybe a little lip tint. But I own no makeup. This goes along with my Genuine and “this is me” posts.



  1. Ping from Bonnie:

    Love your reflective photos, and yes inner beauty shows through in acts and personality!

    I love how pretty you are. I confess I don’t wear make-up out of laziness nine times out of ten. I think part of why you look as young an pretty as you do is you don’t stress your skin out with a bunch of chemicals.

    I consider us non or little makeup women very lucky – we have more time to spend with what we love and we’re confident to know we look fine to great (haha). Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. It’s nice to know there’s Armed Forces brats out there who I can relate to! I had a blasst growing up overseas and great memories for my stories!

  4. Ping from Rebekah Loper:

    If I were to follow the recommended guidelines for discarding make-up to keep it fresh… I’d have to re-buy almost everything each time I wore it, lol.

    I wear make-up about 4-5 times/year, tops. I have fun with it when I wear it, but most of the time it just irritates my skin or I rub it off accidentally.

    So I’m with you on being a natural beauty! 😀

  5. Ping from Patricia Lynne:

    I rarely do make up either. It was mostly because in middle school I decided I wanted to sleep more than get up and put on something that never seemed to stay. My hubby loves that fact about me. ^^

    You are pretty too. Hooray for you!

  6. Ping from Cecilia:

    Naturally beautiful is what you are
    well done for embracing that
    I try to teach my daughter that she
    is a natural beauty and does not need
    to slide into the maelstrom of crazy that is
    the beauty product media expectation.
    We are all beautiful. Naturally.

    I’m with you. I rarely wear makeup, but it’s probably more of a time/skin issue than a statement. There are occasions when hiding the bags under the eyes is a good idea, but mostly, I think women should go natural.

    Oh so short and simple. I love your posts and will come back for more. I also have difficulty wearing make up but I try every now and then. Just the barest minimum hahaha 🙂

    I think I own some make-up somewhere. I have no idea where though! It is rather embarrassing that my father had to help me apply my make-up and do my hair when I was in high school. Never learned to apply it and figured it wasted too much money to buy it. I think in my 35 years of life, I may have spent $20-35 on make-up, maybe a little more, but not much!

  10. Ping from Cheryl:

    Your post resonated with me. I made a decision at the first of the year to quit wearing makeup. I do confess that it is in a box in my bathroom cqbinet – “just in case” Just in case? Just in case of what – I want to hide behind artifice? I want to appear younger? (and does that really work anyway?). I feel I should? (tired of being “should upon”). I am tossing something every day or so until is gone. At firs,t people kept asking me if I was tired or maybe not well because of my lack of color. Now, they don’t notice & new people never saw me any other way. Best of all, it saves a lot of time & $$.
