Do you ever just feel like stripping?

Whoa, before you take it the wrong way, I mean stripping off the make up, the trying-to-be-cute clothes, the hair products - the fake you?

I've worn some kind of make-up every day since I was in middle school, it makes me feel pretty. It hides my flaws and blemishes. It makes my eyelashes longer and darker. Don't get me wrong I love cosmetics, but essentially, it makes me a different person.

I'm not exactly sure what I wanted to accomplish out of this post, but just to assure you, that you are beautiful underneath it all.

There once was a time when I didn't leave the house without make up on, but I've become more and more ok with it. Not to mention it's better for my skin to give it a break every once in a while.

Here's my challenge.
Post a picture of the 'done up' you and the 'stripped down' you.
Be comfortable in your own skin.
Feel beautiful from the inside out.
Love you.
If you accept this challenge I would love to see/hear about it.
Will you leave your link below?
You all inspire me daily and I admire your bravery :)
