Blogging-Without-Makeup Day

There’s a meme going around encouraging bloggers to post pictures of themselves today without make-up.  Hi. I don’t even post pictures of myself without a wig. But I love the idea of truly naked blogging so I took a picture of myself straight out of bed. But first I draped a cat around my chest. Then I airbrushed out a few wrinkles. Then I changed the lens effect and made myself stand up straighter and airbrushed out my freckles and my arm fat and made my eyes pop out more and digitally added mascara. Then I gave the cat mascara. Digitally, I mean. Only crazy people put mascara on cats in real life. Then I added a centaur to cover my ear and to distract from the fact that there’s a beach towel on my towel rack because otherwise everyone would know that I haven’t done laundry because a beach towel in the bathroom is like the red flag of all-my-clean-towels-are-in-the-hamper. And it was perfect:

Awesome.

And then I was all “You know what?  Fuck it.”  And I posted the real, unretouched photo:

I miss the centaur.

And it was awesome.  And I like myself in the bottom picture  just as much. almost as much. in theory. if I had better lighting.

*sigh*

I like myself in the bottom picture.  And that’s a start.

  15. Are you stalking my emails to my friend? Today she was upset about how skinny and the girls were in the Victoria’s Secret catalogue and I had to be like “First, ew. Those girls and disgusting skinny, and second THOSE AREN’T REAL PEOPLE!!” and found that post where you talked about photoshopping magazines and sent her those links you had to show how FAKE all these photos we always look at are.

    I like the second one because it’s a real person. I happen to like real people. But I do miss the centaur. But I suppose that he belongs in photo one since he’s not a real person either. He’s only half real a real at most. And like.. I’d have to say 80% real horse. And I know you’re thinking “hey, but that adds up to like 130%” but that’s not what I mean. I mean like it’s a half man body, but the horse body is basically a whole horse minus the neck and head.

    Here’s a funny story for you: I won elf cosmetics at a #MomzShare event in Maryland. I was excited to win the huge box of makeup. I entertained thoughts of trying to wear makeup again. My teen took one look at the makeup kit and swooped it up. Her answer to my question of “Why did you take the makeup?” was that she wasn’t sure I would take care of it and appreciate it.

    So, when you said there’s a “meme” going around… I immediately thought there was a crazy grandma on the loose trying to tell people to take pictures of themselves without makeup and post it on their blog.
    See, “Meme” is Canadian French for grandma.
    …and that’s TOTALLY something my Meme would do.

    She’s a crazy old broad that enjoy strip clubs and old men.
    …and evidently bloggers without makeup.
    Weird.
    To each their own, grams.

  219. You’re my hero. Brave post. I’ve been lurking for a while. Love the blog. Thanks for the laughs. Not today. I didn’t laugh at this post. This post was brave. I’m just saying. You often make me laugh, and I know I’m learning a lot from you about blogging. Thanks.

  223. So you just woke up? Where are the eye buggers and sleep creases and pop tart sprinkles because your kid left a piece of pop tart in your bed and you did notice at some point but were too tired to actually get up and move it- I mean throw it on the floor so the dog would eat it? What that’s not everyone’s house?

  224. Well this is just dumb. How can I participate in bloggy things like this when I already don’t do them? Errr, what I mean is, I never wear makeup so I can’t play along. Sigh. I am not even talented enough to add a centaur or mascara to my cat that I don’t have.

    But anyhow, I am just rambling nonsense. It’s late. I don’t know WHAT I’m saying, except you look really BEAUTIFUL as far as I’m concerned. So there.

    So Hoda and Kathie Lee were super scary; like that scene in one of the Batman movies when the Joker poisons all the makeup. You, on the other hand, not so much. I would not run screaming from the building like my hair was on fire if I ran into you without makeup… but Kathie Lee and Hoda would get me the lead in a Wes Craven flick without even trying.

  226. I think I’ve inadvertently been blogging without makeup for a few weeks now. Wish I’d known about the meme. Fuck. More importantly, where do I get a goddamn centaur? I really need one. I think he’d be handy when the assholes descend upon my inbox, and lo, they do descend.

    Am I the only one who is extremely disturbed that so many women cannot face the world without make up? That so many commenters praise your beauty (and, Jenny, it is true, you are quite lovely) by making self-deprecating comments? That so many women who respond are that uncomfortable in their skin? I’m no model. I’m not at my perfect weight. But the self-criticism and refusal to embrace yourselves here that so many ladies express makes me sadder than oil spills and foreign wars (not genocide though, genocide definitely makes me sadder).

    Sorry nothing funny to offer on this topic. It just makes me feel like women in general are contributing to their own demise.

    Love yourselves ladies. Be real.

  229. Wait — when did they enact this Blog with Make-up law? I can’t believe that, with two wars, a recession and an oil spill in the Gulf, that President Obama took time to sign that bill. Did he sign it with an eye liner pencil? & if it’s a Prescriptives pencil & still really sharp (I can never get mine as sharp as they come all brand new from Macy’s), can I find it on eBay?

  231. I think that you look lovely, dahling. I can’t be bothered with make-up myself, which I think is actually an okay way to be since it means I never shock people when I go a day without ‘putting on my face’.

    (Seriously, I worked with a girl who once “just didn’t have time” for her usual morning make-up routine — it was like looking into the face of a completely different person when she walked into the lunchroom — yikes!).

  236. I’m really late to the party and thus have nothing original to say, so I’ll just say anyway what I came to say when I clicked on the comments, which is that you are pretty damn attractive, regardless of what you think.

    Maybe you wouldn’t be so attractive if you thought you were? It’s like one of those koan puzzles, except without an easy answer like, yeah, of course it makes a sound– that’s just science.

  243. This is kind of unrelated, but you cat looks just a like a cat I found in my friend’s neighborhood when I was drunk. I hope it’s not the same cat, because we already named her Wendy and my friend hopes to adopt her. The only problem is we can’t tell if she has a home or not. Anyway, you should keep your cat’s fur brushed really well each day, because the condition of a cats fur is our only way of determining whether a cat is feral or not, and I really don’t want to have to steal your cat.
