One woman’s movement to strip beauty standards and reclaim her face

See on Scoop.itSoup for thought

This March, I’m challenging myself to an entire month without makeup.

People wear makeup for various reasons. Some wear it to emphasize their ethnic identity, some to accentuate their gender identity. Others use makeup as an empowering survival tool in an oppressed culture, while others consider their makeup to be an ongoing art piece in self-expression. Some reasons are positive, but my reason for wearing makeup was not. I wanted to be perfect.
