A woman has gone a week without wearing makeup, and documented it for Cosmo.
With celebs posting their makeup-free selfies all over Instagram, Brooke Shunatona decided to conduct an experiment – she would go a whole week sans make-up.
On the first day of her experiment, Brooke attended a launch of a new foundation, and a rep for the brand immediately pointed out the Melasma on her face, she said: “You have really uneven skin. Have you been in the sun? You have spots on your face.”
Although this reaction was hurtful, she persevered.
On the second day, she realised that she forgot she had to attend the Belmont Stakes race and she wore a little makeup, but covered up with a large hat.
Luckily, Brooke had a weekend filled with Game Of Thrones re-runs to fill her third day sans makeup.
The 25-year-old was mistaken for a fresh-faced 18-year-old. Can’t be all bad – can it?
Okay, she had a slight slip-up when she was almost at the end, but being filmed has to be an excuse right?
She felt a little blemish-y after wearing foundation that “suffocated” her face the day before.
Overall, her breakouts calmed down through the experiment, and nothing too terrible happened when makeup left her beauty routine.
She even continued the experiment another day, considering she broke her word a few times; and even now she said she doesn’t wear makeup to work anymore.
Would you be game to ditch the makeup?
