No Make Up Monday #1


Don’t forget to vote for me (xRebelAngelx) as British Style Blogger of the Month here!
New feature! Let’s have a little explanation of it: I always try for at least one day a week not to wear make up. It usually turns out though that it’s 2 or 3 days, which is I think is pretty amazing haha! I often don’t wear it at the weekends when I don’t see many people except family and Ben unless I go out somewhere, but I’ve been trying recently to have one weekday off every week not wearing make up, and it usually ends up being a Monday for some reason. I have three lectures on a Monday, so I see a lot of people.


So what’s the reason I try to do this? Well, firstly it’s got to be good for your skin, because when you think about it, all that foundation, powder, concealer etc is clogging up your pores, all day long every day. Your skin needs time to breathe and be out in the open air. Also, it can make your eyes sore, and dry out your lips and skin wearing make up all the time. Secondly, I think it helps me prove to myself how far I have come in accepting and loving myself as I am. It helps to raise my confidence in myself because I still get complimented even when I’m not wearing make up, and even if I’m not complimented, at least I’m not being insulted!!


So I’ve decided I’m going to try and make this a weekly feature, so it’ll basically just be outfit photos but I won’t be wearing any make up.

Anyway, I absolutely love this skirt! I think I got it last summer, well about this time last year actually after seeing it in shops for ages and finally deciding that I did want it, and I’m so glad I did get it in the end.
And finally, I did something I shouldn’t have today…went shopping… I did need a new cardigan though, and I got one from Primark, and some sunglasses from Accessorize which I need for Spain. Then there was this amazing maxi skirt in Primark I had to have, and a dress in H&M which I thought I could wear as a top with the skirt and it was cute by itself, so it’s all justified haha!

    That is such a cute skirt! I really like the no-make up feature, I think it’s an important part of the “real” aspect of blogging. I hardly ever wear make up, and when I do it’s a little concealer under my eyes and a little eyeliner. Sometimes lipstick. I can’t stand to wear foundation!

    Beautiful! This is something I would definitely wear. I have a thing for long sleeved black lace shirts and kind of have a little collection in my closet. I love how you paired it with the floral skirt and brown belt. xoxo

    You look great – love the skirt teamed with the lace on the top! I never wear make-up, pretty much because I’m lazy but I think I’ll be going with the excuse ‘it’s good for my skin’ from now on!!
