Just like last time,  I saw this challenge on social media, mostly Flickr and Facebook. The point of the challenge is to take a picture of yourself wearing no makeup, and no post-processing (e.g. No Photoshop or other programs). And yes, it bothers me a little that I can’t remove that strand of hair that’s partially showing. I am not sure why it is doing that.

Some people are not wearing lashes, which to me is just odd. Why not go brow-less as well? I did opt to wear the most natural-looking lashes I could find in my CATWA HUD. I normally wear lashes from euphoric, but that’s only because they have a variety of lashes. I have some from Cazimi, Besom, and some other places.

The first time I did this challenge, it made me realize that I needed to like myself both in makeup as well as bare faced. Similar to real life, you can cover up flaws with makeup, but what happens when the makeup comes off? I will say that I would had preferred to do it this time with longer hair, but the hair changes my jaw line too much. I once got questioned about me changing my shape because of the hair being too close to my face. It had made my face rounder than what it was. Ah well, #modelproblems .
