I am participating in an event. I stumbled about it by a friend’s Instagram post, and further research revealed that this event was started by two young women from my church. The event is called Just You June. The challenge is to go the entire month of June without makeup and with your NATURAL hair. I think it was a brilliant idea, because who can resist a challenge? I mean, the words “I dare you.” almost propel us into doing that very thing.
The purpose of this event/challenge is to help girls to realize that they are beautiful without artificial products. God created you. He made you beautiful and He didn’t hand you a makeup kit when you were born saying, “Here, you’ll need this to make you look pretty.”
For most of my life I have gone without makeup. I only started wearing it a few months ago to cover up my acne scars. I still feel comfortable in my own, bare skin, but I have been wearing makeup only on the days I see people. That’s only three days a week, but still, the only time I wear it, is around other people. So, in a sense this actually will be a bit of a challenge for me.
I dare you to join us. It’s only for a month. After that you can go back to putting makeup on, and buy some Cowgirl Dirt! —>
If you do decide to join, it’s #justyoujune on Instagram. 🙂 Have fun!
