The No Make Up Selfie; Why the Hate?

Hello everyone, for the past couple of days there has been a lot of 'no make up selfies' floating around twitter and Facebook and the likes, but one thing I've realized is that they seem to be getting a lot of hate. One girl on my Facebook actually wrote : "Support a charity without being vain and self-absorbed." To be honest I don't really understand what is going on I genuinely thought it was just a harmless bit of fun to help raise awareness and money for charity, and how come the hatred wasn't quite on the same level while those dreadful (and extremely dangerous) neck nominations were going on?! In all honesty I think the whole idea of a 'no make up selfie' is actually pretty clever in itself.

In fact, I actually read on the bus today (in the newspaper on the bus not on side of actual bus) that the #nomakeupselfie has helped to raise around one million pounds already! Amazing what people can do! So, somehow I have now ended up facially naked on the internet a place unable to hide my acne scars and dark circles. I  even wear make up to the gym and just popping to the shops, as I'm so insecure about my skin! But what the heck its for charity right? I mean this is me when I wake up in the morning, this is me the way I am and I think I'm okay with that.I'll also be making a donation of £6 to The Breast Cancer Campaign, which might not seem a lot to some of you but every little helps!!


Also just a little reminder that as promised I will be doing a giveaway to celebrate reaching 100 followers (woohoo!). Believe me when I say I have most definitely not forgotten about all my lovely readers and I can't wait to go out and buy a few treats for one lucky winner!! I'm hoping to get something tomorrow and start the giveaway over the weekend. Really hope everyone enters:)

  1. It's funny because at the start of it, a lot of people were slating it with 'it's not going to make awareness, it's stupid' bla bla.. When in fact I would never have thought of donating (which I have) and I would never have looked at or read some charity websites and what they do (which I have) I think the people hating on it may feel like idiots now that it's raised over £1 million, and is still going!
    P.s you look beautiful without makeup, don't feel so insecure!

  5. I think it's a bit silly to upload a picture and then not donate, but I think it's a great cause overall. So what if people are "vain", they're helping a good cause as well so why should it matter?!

    1. Yeah I know what you mean! People are just doing it because their friends are, but I guess its spreading awareness I've donated twice now and I don't think I would have if this campaign hadn't happened :)
