The Bare Face Challenge, Naturally

Bare Face_001 S

I saw a challenge photo by Caitlin “Caity” Tobias on Flickr and I couldn’t resist. The hardest part for me was the “NO Photoshop!” rule. I’m dying to fix my nose, jaw, chin, neck and arm 😦 But other than cropping, I resisted…somehow!

It’s a fun challenge, and a simple one: take a close up wearing only your skin (hair is fine). No other makeup, no eyelashes, nuthin…just you. Hey, I didn’t cheat: I’m just smart enough to choose Hart Larsson as my skin maker, who included lipstick and eyeliner with my everyday skin 😉

Scroll through Flickr and you’ll see quite a few bare faces, all naturally very lovely. And maybe not as surprisingly as you might think.

Pretty stuff I’m showing off:

  1. Don’t you wish more skins had the option to exclude ALL makeup? I mean, sure it makes life easier, but sometimes it’s nice to just be free of it all, don’t you think? I’ve noticed that many of the Bare Faced Challenges I’ve seen have some kind of makeup included, even without extras.

    1. Ya know, I have a bare version in the Sunkissed tone, but not in the Natural I’m wearing now. I’m not big on adding my own lipstick or eyeshadow, so having it built in is a blessing for me. I guess I’m just lazy lol

  2. I went through several megabytes of boxes looking for barefaced anything that was really ‘bare faced’, but yeah most of them have some tone or tinge or sumpn’ added. Still a great challenge, and you look lovely Peep as always ♥
