Today is the day. Today we get to unite and show everyone our true selves!
Thank you to all of the bloggers and tweeps out there who took this idea on board and decided to join me in going makeup free for a day.
I can't tell you how liberating this has been for me. Cate Bolt left a comment on my post the other day about shaving her head and feeling the same sort of liberation. It feels right to do this, and I'm so glad there are so many who want to get involved. What a great example we will be to our kids, and also to young girls who think they have to look like a magazine cover all the time. (You DON'T ladies! You are gorgeous as you are!)
I have been overwhelmed with the response to this initiative. I figured a few might join in (maybe out of sympathy for me!)...but when I started turning on Twitter and reading my comments on my blog, I realised that this was something many of you wanted to do. And I've seen people then start to worry about going through with it, then put up their pic on Twitter (early - it started to feel like Christmas Eve last night on Twitter, with many unable to wait to open their pressies!) and become so excited at having had the chance to just let go and be themselves... Incredible.
Ok, so firstly...if you're not a blogger - don't despair. You can still get involved. If you're on Twitter, you can change your profile pic for today, or tweet a link to Twitpic or something similar with your pic, and attach the trending topic to your tweet, #BloggersWithoutMakeup. Then everyone can click on the topic and see who else is doing the same!
If you're not on Twitter, and not a blogger, you can actually attach a pic in the comments below. There's a little button thingy down there to help you do that. We'd love to see your pic!
If you're a blogger, then I've attached a lovely little Linky Tools list below. Just copy a link to your blog post (not just the homepage, the actual post) for Bloggers Without Makeup Day and add the link below. Don't forget to include your Blog Name and maybe your name! Whatever you like. That way, everyone can take a look at your makeup free shot. I'll be viewing and commenting on every single one. I can't wait!!!
Ok - GO FOR IT! And once again, thanks for getting involved. You're doing a really great thing here today. Every bit counts.
You are all amazing. A-MA-ZING!
PS - Hot or Not won't be posted today as per usual. I figured today's post could be our Friday fun for this week!
