Bare Faces in Sports!
No make-up or bare faces trend seeped in Spring last year and the trend seems to continue among netizens. With high quality cameras on phone, filters and editing apps on mobile phones, women are more confident wearing a naked face and share with friends on social media. People nowadays prefer something natural without make-up or less make-up. This shows authenticity without having to cover up their appearance. Make-up here means those who wears a heavy total-covered make-up with mascara, eye-shadows, red hot lips, and etc. Thin layer of make-up made of mineral oil are acceptable as long as it does not block pores.
Why Make Up?
People who wears make-up tend to be afraid and have less confidence in themselves whenever they’re in public without make-up. A study shows that majority or 65% female wear makeup to attain self-esteem. In this reason,women believe that through makeup, they could gain confidence, self-assurance, self-trust, social competence and comfort in terms of interpersonal relationship.
The good news is that more and more women who embrace active lifestyles are confident with their looks. Look at these fresh faces and full of confidence. Take heed and mark in mind! Attaining confidence is not all about you look on the outside. It’s about how happy and joyful you are when engaged in any sports activity. The more confident you are bare-face, the more beautiful you will become. Just take care of your skin, groom well & stay healthy!
Embrace who you are
What do Men Say?

The general senses we get from a few guys in sports is that a clean face & natural are well accepted by them. So stay authentic, groom yourself naturally, stay healthy & build your personality!
