Morning Breath Blogging (that truthiness portrait thing)

Umm, I saw it here first. She'll do anything, and I like that in a person.
Then I looked here, here, and here, and they did it too.

Apparently, she started it.

Problem is, I was raised by amish religious zealots wolves a mother who convinced me that make-up is evil I was beautiful au naturel (good god I don't mean nekkid!), so this 'truthiness' of being is really how I look pretty much all day. No war paint.
I brush my hair and my teeth, and my eyebrows are in serious need of waxing, but other than a teensy little bit of concealer, this is me first thing in the morning, this is me at lunch time, this is me when I go to meet the kid's teacher, this is me when I put on my happy face and teach happy music, and this is me after dinner when the kids have gone to bed (add glass of red wine to hand).


What I am trying to say here, is sadly, that there is no improved me.

Of course, since this was Saturday morning and there was no rushingofftoschool involved, I indulged my lovely morning mug with a little photo sesh.


First thing in the morning - like a kitten, my eyes have not yet opened:

Here I am slightly more awake:

Here I am eyeing my camera suspiciously:

Now, utterly disgusted with the lame camera that insists on catching my every mole and wrinkle:

No hard feelings, here I flash you the shaka sign.

NOW it's time for the concealer!

But that's the beauty of it G. You are one of those woman who have a natural beauty. No makeup involved. I myself probably could use a lot more then I put on.Love the pics. I can see why you wouldn't use the makeup, unnecesary.

Oh and I dont know how old you are, but you look like you could be in your twenties, which I know that you are not. So there! I forgot to mention in my previous post that I loathe the makeup and wear only mascara and blush, and that's only if I have time for the mascara, because it is too time consuming.

Redneck Mommy said...

I can't believe you challenged me for this. DO YOU WANT ME TO SCARE MY READERS??? BlogHerAds will probably pull the plug on me. But I'll think about it.

BTW, I'm with you on the consistency issue. What you see in the morning is basically what you've got all day. But who's looking at me anyway? As long as my kid looks cute . . .
