woman going without makeup for a month
Constance Rhodes is going without makeup for the whole month of February. It’s now February 17th. 11 more days to go. Good thing it’s a shorter month. She’s been blogging about it, with daily photos, at truecampaign.org .
As for me, I’ve gone without makeup for months at a time. No big deal. And not a big deal in many parts of the world, right? But then again, I’m a guy. Here’s my comment to Constance:
“As a guy, I have no idea how makeup, or the lack there of, can affect a woman emotionally and even psychosomatically. It doesn’t help that I could care less about my appearance and what others think of me. Thanks for taking the courageous steps to do this experiment, and live to blog about it.”
Plus, living here in “the OC”, there’s a more obvious compulsion about “beauty” and “image” among the masses.
