Makeup Free Mondays- Will you join the movement?

Every Monday go barefaced. Whether it be to the office, school or running errands... wear no makeup at all. Will you be participating?



Move over Casual Fridays and say hello to Makeup Free Mondays, a new movement taking workplaces by storm. Initiated by Alexis Wolfer over at The Beauty Bean, Makeup Free Mondays is a new movement created to encourage women to enhance their inner beauty and be “comfortable in their own skin”…

At The Beauty Bean, we all obviously have a deep love for our makeup and beauty goods. We love testing out the latest lip lacquers, rocking the newest nail craze and figuring out the best way to tackle the turquoise trend. We proudly pamper with the best of them and beautify gleefully. That being said, we ultimately value inner beauty and wellness considerably more than we do our smudge-free mascara… It’s why we steer-clear of body altering airbrushing, make a commitment not to digitally alter any in-house photography and place the emphasis on health, fitness and wellness, rather than weight loss.Β  -Alexis Wolfer

Want to join the movement? It’s simple. Every Monday go barefaced. Whether it be to the office, school or running errands… wear no makeup at all. This may be a bit too much for some (ME! lol) and I know you may be shaking your head no and getting ready to shut down the whole idea but read on. Alexis encourages you to make it your own and if going barefaced is a big leap for you, try eliminating one part of your makeup routine such as eyeshadow or mascara.

I have been tired a lot lately and in order to sleep a bit longer on workdays, I’ve been trying to make my routine as simple as possible. To do this I have been foregoing eyeshadow. So with that being said, I will make this my initial contribution to Makeup Free Mondays. Every Monday I willΒ  not wear any eyeshadow. I know it’s just a baby step but I have to start somewhere right? πŸ™‚

What do you think about Makeup Free Mondays? Will you be participating?

    1. Lol I’m loving me some WordPress girl!…

      Wow maybe one day I can say the same, no makeup at all? Glad to see that you are participating hon πŸ™‚

  1. I only wear eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss. I could go makeup free — but i hate chapped lips, so I’ll use chap stick instead of lipgloss.

    I usually wear a more casual look on Fridays. I know the wording sounds best for makeup free mondays, but i wish it was friday instead

    1. Girl chapped lips is definitely a no go, so I understand lol. Hey Alexis said to make it your own so if you want to make it Makeup Free Fridays and that works best for you, so be it. Friday can be your makeup free day. You are still participating and that is all that counts! πŸ™‚

    1. lol I hear you hon!

      Things are going much better. I was able to redirect my old Blogger feed to the new feedburner feed and all of my subscribers popped back up. A few ppl are still not receiving updates or getting them late, but for the most part things are fixed. Thank you so much for checking in on me and thanks again for all of your help! πŸ™‚

  2. Ummm, I don’t know about Makeup Free Mondays. I don’t wear makeup every day, but sometimes a girl needs a little color to look alive. Especially on Mondays when your trying to appear bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when in fact your concealing a massive hangover (JK!), no sleep, or a myraid of other weekend-related ailments. I’m down with casual Friday, but me no likey Makeup Free Mondays.

    1. Lol @ massive hangover. Yeah Mondays are tough for me. That is why I will not commit to no makeup at all, but I can do without eyeshadow. At least I think I can, we shall see! πŸ™‚

  3. I THINK I could do without eyeshadow and mascara at least once a week LOL. I’ll let you know how that works for me πŸ™‚

    Good luck to those that will be participating.

  4. I love this idea!..I rarely wear makeup except for mascara, eyeliner and lipstick or gloss and when I want to get fly, I'll put on some shadow! =)..I hope this works out for everyone though!!! =)
