Natural Beauty

It's the weekend again and I honestly couldn't be happier, it's after 12 and I'm still in bed and that makes me very happy. 

Today's post is all about embracing your natural beauty. Some of you will be sitting there thinking, what natural beauty do I have!? I thought the same thing when I found out this was the theme of the first Secret Blogger Project 2015 post! But, I promise you, you all have natural beauty inside of you, you just have to find it!

I'm going to show you a "no makeup makeup look" but to be honest, I'm really hardly wearing any in this as you will soon see! If you feel like you would be more comfortable with a little more than I am wearing here, or even less - if that's possible - that is also fine. These tutorials are there for you to make to suit you, not to be done exactly the same. 

So this is before I have put anything on - just a clean and fresh face! It's totally okay to go out like this too! I've been doing this a lot more recently since I've had a lack of energy from school. You may not feel 100% confident that you look your best like this, but it's so good for your skin, makes you feel refreshed and it boosts your self confidence just to know that you can go out in public bare faced!

This is the only makeup product I put on my face in this look! I know you can't see because the logos have rubbed off but this is the Natural Collection concealer in Fair. This product is decent coverage and stays on long enough for me. It's also super cheap so anyone could afford this product!

All I do is put it under my eyes to cover the dark circles a bit and on any spots or blemishes that I might be a bit self conscious about. It's amazing how you can feel just knowing that the things you dislike the most are covered up, not your whole face.

And that's it! A little bit of concealer and you're done! I've been doing this so much for going to school recently just to avoid getting out of bed really! 

Going out with this little makeup on can be really difficult for some girls to do, and I understand that. I never used to want to leave the house without anything on but I realised that I was being silly really and I didn't really need to wear makeup all the time because no one is really looking, or cares. 

As long as you feel confident in the way you look, that's all that matters. Even if that is with a full face of makeup, that is your choice and no one should ever make you feel differently about that.

This post is part of a little blogger series I'm taking part in called the "Secret Blogger Project 2015" run by teen bloggers EmilyRebekka and Charlotte. About 30 of us will be writing twice a week on selected little lifestyle topics and you can also go onto the Twitter and Instagram hashtag "#secretbp2015" to have a little chat and view everyone's posts. If you would like to join or know more (we'd love to have you!) Instagram DM @theperks0fbeingemily or if you don't have Instagram, send a quick email torebekkarosebeautyxo@gmail.com.


Just before I end the post I just want to draw your attention to some advice posts that I'm having published every Friday on Silent Secret. I'm basically writing about different things for teenagers aged 11-19 just giving general advice about a different topic every week. Head over to the blog linked above and check out what I've done so far! 

See you next time!

Love, Becca

  1. I love the simplicity, I tend to just leave my face natural but sometimes I use concealer and mascara just to enhance my features

  3. Oh, you are so cute without makeup! As for me, I use conceler or bb and a little bit of mascara and that's my 'natural beauty' make up:)
