A year ago I began a personal project that we are referring to as The No Makeup Challenge. After a client told me about how she was creating a No Makeup week for teens in the city she lives, in, I began considering my own feelings with makeup more. I realized I never leave home without it on and I feel completely unattractive when not wearing some. Well, other women certainly must feel the same way, right?
So, for the past year I have been putting some past clients to the test with No Makeup Shoots behind closed doors. Was it possible to feel sexy being photographed with a completely naked face? My goal is that everyone who participates will see the resulting images and finally see their true, natural beauty, once and for all.
Nobody has seen their images yet. The images will be revealed to everyone at the same time, once we have finished, in a book, packaged together for more of a bonding experience. We are still needing a few more participants actually, so if you are interested, and have a regular shoot booked (or are already a past client), let me know! The next shoot date will be on May 18th for this.
My team and I are doing it too! Here is an example of one of mine. Yup, completely bare-faced, and just out of the shower (naked). And, ya know what? My images have completely transformed my opinion of myself with no makeup! Where I normally try to hide the wrinkles, freckles and dog bite scar on my jaw, I feel like I am finally able to wear them like a badge of honor. Hope it will do the same for many others too!
What is YOUR relationship like with makeup? Are you a slave to it like I am?
