A Makeup Free Day To Discuss Inner Beauty

This Friday, September 21st, MissRepresentation.org is hosting a Twitter party with #FreshFace to discuss how the media’s addiction to makeup impacts women and girls in America. All over the country people are committing to be makeup-free for an entire day, in order to lead conversations with their friends and family around how to better value inner beauty.

The campaign was inspired by 15 year-old Shea Backes, who submitted this idea to our Weekly Action Alert contest last month:

“my friends [and I] are trying to spread the idea of wearing no makeup at least one day a week to school. I came up with this idea when I realized that most girls I know do not feel comfortable or beautiful without makeup on. I don’t hate makeup I just hate when it becomes a routine and something to cover yourself so you look more like the media’s projection of what beautiful is. I think makeup should be for fun and to make you feel beautiful but it should not feel like a hassle and you should not be self-conscious without it. I think girls my age should not feel like they have to wear makeup and feel controlled by it.”

You can join in by following #FreshFace from 12-2 PM PT this Friday. We’ll be leading a compelling discussion and encouraging supporters to share observations and learnings from their experience.

Tweet your commitment to join us, and follow us on Twitter @representpledge!

  1. [...] MissRepresentation is at it again! This time, they’re promoting a campaign conceived by one of their Action Reps (we’re like grassroots superheros), a teenager wanting to challenge the face-painting status quo. And I don’t mean butterflies and tigers on kids at the state fair. I mean you and your daily face-painting habits that likely began sometime circa junior high. [...]

  2. Bravo! I think it would be interesting to have the men weigh in with comments! I have yet to meet a man who believes women are more attractive when wearing makeup.. just sayin’

  5. Leet me tell you a story my golfing friends like to tell.
    , was called Thee Dreaming, with the singer from Stabbing Westward, and it
    was quite different. If one person’s heart was broken, then there will always be a one-sided
    bitterness within your attempted friendship.

  6. Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Many thanks, However I am encountering issues with your RSS.
    I don’t understand why I can’t join it. Is there anybody else having similar RSS
    problems? Anyone who knows the answer will you kindly respond?
    Thanx!!
