Blogging Without Makeup

Got this from The Bloggess. The idea is to post a picture of yourself with no makeup. Celebrate the beauty of who we are, the real woman, yadda yadda yadda. Now, for me, the no makeup thing is actually pretty normal. I only wear makeup when I dress up. I never wear it day to day, as it's one of my sensory issues. The hard part of this though is posting a picture of me at all, since I rarely have pictures taken of me, let alone posted online. And especially not without some photo editing magic.

But, I figured, why not? It's not like I have anyone to impress. The only tricky part was getting a shot with the kids in the vicinity. They are OBSESSED with my webcam, and it led to most shots looking like this:

I finally was able to click at the right nanosecond a while later, so here I am, completely unedited and raw. (and recovering from a 4 day long migraine.)

You're definitely one of my favorite pretty girls. From your eyes, to your smile, simply gorgeous. My make-up whore self is definitely jealous of all this natural beauty.
