In the eye of the beholder

On Saturday, Ashley over at Writing to Reach You tagged me to play a little game called take a picture of yourself right now for which you literally take a picture right then and post it. Well, I didn't read that post until Sunday morning and although it was about 10:30 a.m. when I read it, I was still in my jammies (weekends are for sleeping in, right?). I had literally just woken up and hadn't even had a chance to run a comb through my hair let alone do any other "primping" measures. But being the good sport I am, I took her up on her challenge. I fought my primal urge to run to the bathroom to wash my face and put on concealer. You're welcome? Ha, you be the judge. (But not too harsh, ok? I had just rolled out of bed for Pete's sake!*)

Morning glory: scruffy eyebrows, unkempt hair, glasses and all-around sleepy face.

In my defense, here is a photo I took later that evening, also using my laptop, which imparts a nice glow, I think.

Better, yes? See, I clean up ok!

Alright, your turn! I did it, so you have no excuses. I tag Amber, Shoshanah, Andhari and anyone else who has the guts. Luckily for you I post later in the day than most bloggers. Make sure that if you do it you leave a comment letting me know so I can go check out your pic!

P.S. To see more faces sans makeup, check out the covers of the April issue of French Elle. Eight European starlets went bare faced in the photos and there was supposedly no Photoshopping or retouching of any kind. Now that's brave!

*Who is this Pete guy anyway?

Ahh, yay. Thanks for playing along! That's really interesting with French Elle. I'm not against makeup, but it's nice to get a real glimpse every once in a while.

Amber said...

Awww, cutee!

I JUST took the picture on my blackberry now and I will post it tomorrow morning :-)

Shoshanah said...

I've been wanting to do this, thanks for tagging me!

And you have me beat, because I think I used my annual pass for around 3 hours in the YEAR I had it! And I registered his birthday already! I didn't want to miss out!
