Au naturale

I have been wanting to write a post mimicking an exercise in beauty by Tyra Banks: my face without a stitch of makeup and my face with the usual makeup. So, here it is in all of its glory. You decide: au naturale, or for pity sake's put on some makeup! And, if you don't want to be scared a couple days before Halloween avert your eyes! :)

Me, you guessed it without makeup. I look so sad and tired. :(

Me, with makeup. Huge difference! Ordinarily, because of my coloring and light eyelashes and eyebrows I look a little plain, but then with a little enhancement I can accentuate different features of my face. I am all for loving who you are naturally, but a little makeup never hurt anyone. :)

I would also like to share my new real estate picture! The first one was taken when I was about 6 months pregnant with my second daughter. I think I Photoshopped my arm, also. The second one was taken a couple weeks ago. Big difference again! I had braces in the first one, hence why no smile and in the second I not only don't have braces but my front tooth has been repaired. I damaged it and chipped off a big portion in my early teens. I used to hate my smile. Not anymore! So, my transformation is really almost complete! :)


  1. Amazing the difference, though you're lovely both ways, I must say. I am floored by your gorgeous cheek bones, especially in the photo with no make up! The RE pic is FAB-O!!!

  2. Dude- you were not smiling in the non-makeup. It's inner beauty.

    I dare you to take a picture of your hair done and smiling w/o makeup. Try to make it as close to the make up pictures as possible!

    Make that inner beauty radiate through the picture. Be happy that you are all natural! :)

  3. I so agree with them, your eyes show who you are and makeup doesn't touch that!

    Nice pictures--all of them.
