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. -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 will not wear any eyeshadow. I know it’s just a baby step but I have to start somewhere right? 🙂
What do you think about Makeup Free Mondays? Will you be participating?
