Beauty by Ginger: The No Make Up Challenge!

Bon Soir Universe!

When I was on holiday, I didn't really wear much make up. I didn't need to!

Back at home in the UK, I tend to wear make up almost every day...and usually the whole hog...foundation, concealer, powder, blusher and mascara. I'm really self conscious about my skin because I do still get the occasional spot, and have some spot scars from...the teenage years!!

However, for the past 3 weeks I have embarked on a No Make Up challenge. I've not been wearing make up on a day to day basis, and only put it on when I've been going out in the evening!!

I can honestly say it's the best thing I've ever done for my skin!!

I encourage anybody who carries a make up comfort blanket to take this challenge...you do start off feeling really scared, but I have gained so much confidence now, and my skin has really cleared up just by cutting back, and just following a simple "cleanse and moisturise" routine!

Ps: I am SO pale...do I look ghostly to you guys?!

I also know the picture's not the best, but I have broken down a wall. This is me with absolutely ZERO make up on. I honestly never thought I'd be able to do this, but here I am! 


  1. You look stunning - You definitely don't need to wear make-up at all.

    I've been trying to wear make-up less these days. I used to put it all on even if I was sitting around the house but, now, whenever I come home, I take it off immediately and don't mind popping to the shops or supermarket without it on.

    I still don't have the confidence to wear nothing to work or when I'm out and about with my friends ... but maybe one day. :)

  2. Lovely! Have a great weekend sweetie!:)
