Visual FBFF: Baring It All

Gasp! The horror! Bloggers taking pics without makeup. Franca of Oranges and Apples challenged us FBFF members to take a picture of us sans makeup this week. I loved the idea! I wear minimal makeup on a daily basis and usually go without makeup on the weekends.

I took this pic before heading to work yesterday morning. I've bared my dark circles before on my blog. She also asked us to discuss our relationship with makeup. I love it but I am not overly dependent on it. Our relationship started off rocky as I didn't have anyone to teach me how to wear it. Most of high school I didn't wear it then senior I committed every faux paus: streaky blush, clumpy mascara. Thankfully I had a gay best friend to tell me I looked like a drag queen. Then I went to college where I studied fashion so all the fashionistas had their makeup on point. I started finding what worked best for me. Then I started blogging and bloggers created an unhealthy addiction! I think I've found some balance (except for my nail polish addiction). I dabble in the occasional bold lip or dramatic smoky eye but my every day routine is fairly simple: tinted moisturizer, concealer and mascara.

Would you dare to go bare? 

Now go check out all the other beautiful bloggers who bared it all!


  1. I go bare all the time. Ironically, more so as I get older.

  2. You look so beautiful with no make up!! I never wear anything on my face...just on my eyes, so can usually go out bare faced if I have to.

  3. I go bare most of the time unless I have meetings or dinners out. I don't wear a lot of makeup, just the basics. Love seeing you without make up. You look fabulous!

  4. I love seeing you without make-up, Kimberlee! You've got such great features, happy eyes, big smile. That's the secret to true beauty:)

  5. Thanks for taking part! I didn't even see your dark circles til you pointed them out! also i love your necklace!

  6. @For those about to shop- I guess it's one less step in the morning? hehe

    @Sherin- Aw thanks, well no wonder you have such fabulous skin :)

    @Fashion by Alicia- Aww thanks :) That's a great routine to have, will give you great skin!

    @Fabienne Jach- Aw thank you :) hehe

    @Franca- Of course, haha thanks - It's from Kohls!

  7. I really love seeing everyone without makeup on! I love your eyes, they're gorgeous and you really do have the prettiest smile. :)

    P.S. I also have a nail polish addiction. :)

  8. You look soooo pretty with out make up on!! I have a love/hate relationship with make up. I hate putting it on but i love the after effect. I can go without eye make up but my skin is just soo blotchy and red that foundation is just necessary for me at this point. :(


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
