Stop Wearing Make-up (Praise Alicia Keys)

Wearing make up is bad for your skin but also for women's self esteem in general.
I have stopped wearing makeup years ago: I am happy it is now becoming trendy.

he pressures to conform to typical airbrushed beauty standards in the entertainment industries are being met with a steady rebuttal. The rise of models who vary in size, the high-profile women calling out publications for Photoshopping them and the amount of women in the public eye posting pictures of them not wearing any make up are all testament to this.
Keys has now joined the latter movement. Penning an essay for Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s feminist newsletter, Lenny, the “Fallin” singer discusses her decision, a decision she credits as being one of the most empowering ones she’s made.

The 35-year old touched on her experiences of being judged on her appearance when she first established herself in what she calls “the harsh, judgemental world of entertainment”, explaining “everyone had something to say” about her appearance.

In recent months, Cameron Diaz posted a candid no-make up selfie to generate a healthy discussion about ageing. Cindy Crawford, Eva Longoria, Gwyneth Paltrow and Anne Hathaway have also posted similarly important selfies.

I am confused, photoshopping and wearing makeup are not the same...

Many high profile women are active against the media using photoshopping to enhance their looks...
However, this is completley different from the many who are happy to use products to enhance themselves.
Most foundations actualy protect skin from harmful effects of the sun, can cover blemishes that leave women feeling embarassed and awkward about.

Trendy ?....
Simply highly paid women jumping on the I FEEL THE NEED TO DICTATE TO OTHER WOMEN.

Come back when these same women stop using hugely expensive products to preveny ageing stops, that the average woman simply could not afford.

Why should women be embarassed by a blemish? Because others make them feel bad about it.
Most men don't, unless they are in an "I'm so girly" trip. Why is that?
Because society does not pressure men so much on their appearance.

But I agree that Alicia looks photoshop even without make-up, because nature was that way with her.

So of course you are right, top models should realize they would have no job if the body of women was not sexualized to make women feel crap about their body and buy crap to hide behind. So if she was honest she'd get a real job and stop exploiting her looks.

As many men than women get embarassed about blemishes, fact of life eithne..
Men are equaly pressurised to conform to perfection, so explaining why they spend a small fortune on products.

Modelling is a real job, women in this industry work long hours, are highly paid intelligent women who very often go to open their own agencies, film work, authors ect...

My point was directed at those who insist on dictating to other women, but are exploiting the same women by advertising beauty products that have no scientific proven value, they make a fortune via media advertising.
They use high priced skin care products, yet tell other women that they are being somehow forced to wear makeup..
Hypocrisy!..

If you choose not to wear makeup, let it be your choice, not one dictated to you by others.
