June: A Month of Zero Makeup

June is happy, June is bright, June is sunny, June is fun, June is a good month. A good month to do something crazy. I’ve been so fed up with societal “beauty”, acne and makeup that I’ve decided to ditch it for a month. Completely. No make up. You heard me.

Zero.

In April I did a Week of Zero Waste DIY Challenge: Beauty Edition. But now it’s basically summer!June is acne awareness month and in respect of this, I am hoping to make a stance against toxic makeup brands, toxic pollution, and most of all toxic human perception. As a result I hope to gain a truer understanding of my own self perception as well as how I perceive others. I hope to influence and intrigue you and others around me to do the same. I guess that’s what a blog is anyway. HA! How freeing and enlightening to say BYE to all that BS and show the world our true beauty. Our inner beauty. I bet a LOT of women around the world don’t even have the option to make themselves “flawless”. I reject isles and isles of masking chemicals that tell us we’re beautiful if we’re “perfect”. I pray that in this process I learn so much and gain a better appreciation for what I have. Wanna join me? Contact me and we all can be strong women together this month through supportive care, encouragement and flat out fun. Check out ZERO WASTE: Makeup vs Beauty. It Takes Years. Advice, Triumphs and Fails.

Conclusion: It was AMAZING, I think I’ll do it every June! My month here:
