30-30: the final one, #30

30. Pictures of yourself with and without wearing makeup.

Brace yourself, ladies, here's me sans makeup!

See, color wise, my own face doesn't match my own neck?!

I know, I can't complain too much -  a bit of uneven skin tones, dark circles, some pores - no big deal.
I'll admit that this pic was taken on a week-end, though, so my dark circles aren't as bad as during the week since I've had enough sleep!

And well, you've seen me with makeup on a million times! :-)

That's all, folks!


  1. your skin looks great without makeup Mariella! And I can't see ANY dark circles.

  2. You're gorgeous with or without makeup. :)

    PS: I have the same neck/face issue!

  3. Beauteous! And kudos, I haven't worked up the nerve to post my makeup-less photo...maybe tomorrow ;)

  4. I find you are way too gorgeous without makeup you know that!
    For the neck and face not matching challenged people, count me in :p! I remembered last time I went to a Bobbi Brown counter the MA gave up on matching me down to my chest.

    I am pretty sure it has to deal with the fact we are so pale. Everything shows through our skin and it changes colour on a whim! Wind, heat, cold, rain you name it...

  5. Well thank you ladies!
    @Lambda: indeed my cheeks react to anything, it's awful!
    éJen: look again, they're visible ;-)

  6. I think you look great without makeup. Better than me, anyway. And if those are dark circles, they're awfully hard to see! I look exhausted when I have no makeup on and lately I've had a breakout, so my skin is not great. I didn't wear makeup today and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. AAAHHHHHH!!!! Terrible. And not at all as great as you look up there. : )

  7. @ Marty: thanks dear. I have to say, though, that this pic was taken on a day where I got 9 hours of sleep (week-end), and it makes a HUGE difference compared to what I look like on week days with 7 hours - it's crazy what a difference sleep makes to your skin!!


I love getting comments, thanks for sharing your thoughts!
