Why I don’t wear makeup either CC: @ManRepeller



 Earlier this week Leandra aka @ManRepeller did a post on why she doesn’t wear make up. The post, a re-action to a comment about her appearance accidentally included in an email chain, and a reply to followers on her instagram about why she never ‘makes an effort’ prompted me to write my own response on why I don’t really wear make up either.    

There is nothing more that I love than a black cat eye, but I have lost count of the times I have lost a battle with a liquid eyeliner and as a result been late for a meeting/ not replied to more emails. Most days I am happy with a flick of Benefit mascara and if I’m feeling particularly indulgent, a swipe of Nars Laguna Bronzer. Yes I could get up earlier and dedicate more time to pruning, and the reason why I don’t wear make up is not like Leandra ‘because I am lazy’, but because I simply think I have more important things to do than enhance my face.This probably stems slightly from modelling where you are expected to be fresh faced 24/7, and I partly probably think I can still get away with that new face confidence. Despite the fact I am now 23 not 16- ahem below!

This order of priorities aka work, emails, get dressed, jewellery on, work, emails- is very much the reason why I rarely wore any make up in the first series of Made in Chelsea, whilst other cast members had make up artists or hairdressers over before filming I was in the office and time was ticking- work on myflashtrash.com or get ready to film? The former always won and if you look back on season 1 now my lack of contouring or fake eye lashes is ridiculously evident – shout out to the few twitter haters who commented on this #sorrynotsorry.

Even now as I write this, I am wearing no make up, my hair in a pony tail and I am happy. And that’s all it comes down to, if you want to spend extra time on your appearance and it will make you feel happier then amazing do it, but identifying what truly makes you feel content and confident ( aka hustling and working all day for me!) will maybe reveal that  you don’t need to wear make up. Just like how Breast Cancer Cares new viral #nomakeupselfie campaign did so well, or how wearing nike trainers and lululemon gear around town is becoming more and more mainstream, perhaps a bare face and natural smile will soon become the norm too.

 After all why wear make up when you can wear jewellery? New necklace please! Shop Here
