Women Don’t Wear Makeup For A Week • Ladylike

– Okay. Selfies. – Because I felt like I had to. – I had horrible acne as a kid. – I think makeup’s fun;
that’s why I wear it. (uplifting pop music) I think that I started getting
into makeup in high school because I liked to feel grown up. You know, here’s my
makeup bag; I’m an adult. – When I was younger, I
just wanted to not have any reason for attention
to be drawn to me, which, if you’re in high
school, and your skin is, like, patchy and acne-y, that’s something that might cause attention to you. – I wore makeup in college
because a lot of the girls were wearing makeup, so
I was like, oh, okay, I kind of have to keep up. – I almost wear it more as just like, if I wanted to in an empowering way. (intense, dramatic techno music) – To me, makeup’s just
about expressing myself. – My makeup takes 10 minutes to apply, and already that’s, like,
nine minutes too long. – Trends are forever changing so I’m trying to keep up, I guess. – It’s fun seeing the most
ideal, best version of yourself. – I do think we live in a society that really does value your looks, and it really does value all these things you can do to enhance your looks. – People are constantly questioning what it means to be a woman. What does being feminine actually mean? – I think it’s definitely
more about the fun element and also the therapeutic element. Just doing my makeup is sort
of, like, a time of reflection. – It’s a choice that
you, personally, make. If you decide that you
don’t wanna show people what your under eye bags
look like, you don’t have to. – I think, like, when
people don’t wear makeup, it’s often unfairly seen as,
like, a really political choice when it should just be seen as someone deciding not to wear makeup. (upbeat pop music) Going into this week, I would say that I’m mostly just insecure
about going bare skin. – I think day-to-day is gonna be okay. I might be too cocky, but time will tell. – I’m excited I can spend all week doing strange skin care treatments. – I’m excited if I can actually do it, nervous that I’m gonna cheat. – All right, it’s off. – Here we go. – It’s morning one of no makeup. I am actually pretty nervous about this. I didn’t really expect to
feel so self-conscious. The nice thing is, though, because I’m not wearing any
makeup, I’ve shaved, like, 15 minutes off my ready time, so I was able to sleep in a little bit. Now I can go to work, and
I’m not gonna be late. – I am too comfortable at work right now. I don’t have any makeup on my face, so I’m just in a full blanket, basically acting like
the office is my bedroom. – I am headed to go get my eyebrows done and my mustache waxed just
so I can feel, you know, a little put together for this next week. – I went to a museum today,
I went out to dinner, I met someone new, and all without makeup, and I didn’t even think twice about it. So this bodes well for
the rest of my week. – It’s a little bit
awkward ’cause I feel like, just being at the office
and being bare faced makes me feel like I’m
in high school again and I’m really young, but I’m trying to be confident and sassy. – I didn’t wash my hair
today, and that’s okay because there’s no illusion to be kept up. We’re just having a good time, me and my dirty hair and
my bare face, and you know, I got a pimple over here, buy hey. – So I’m going to my
friend’s album release party, and it’s a night event, it’s
at a bar, trying to dress cute. I’m realizing it’s not
as bad during the day, but at night, I really do
wanna throw some makeup on. I just posted a picture on Instagram without makeup from the event last night. It took me a second to really, kind of muster up the courage to post it. I never post pictures without makeup. – I’m out shopping right now, and I actually had to go to
Sephora and get a lot of makeup for a different shoot, and
I was a little intimidated going in there because
everyone in there just has, like, such amazing makeup looks, and I was walking in there
with a completely bare face. – We’re at a restaurant with no makeup on. It’s pretty okay. Today, I was, like, very on the go. – Yeah. – I was, like, upstairs, downstairs, turning in paperwork, scanning
things, organizing my desk, and I was just, like, you know what, I’m on the go, I’m sweating a little bit, and it’s good that I don’t have makeup on. – Mmhm. (uplifting pop music) I’m getting bored. Also, I’m wearing one
of my favorite jerseys, which is bright purple, and so I feel like I do have a little bit
of, like, va-va-voom with my look, but just,
like, a boring ass face. – And I’ve been sweating the entire day, and so I guess I’m kind of glad that I’m not wearing makeup today. I just didn’t even have
to deal with, like, trying to dab, you know. – So today, we’re going on our team outing to a wine safari, and of
course today would be a day where I would throw on some makeup, especially some concealer,
’cause, like, look under my eyes. – I spent my time before our outing using Chantel’s real scissors,
yeah, her real scissors, to trim the top of my brows,
which is a good use of my time, since I don’t need to
be putting makeup on. – We are about to embark
on the Malibu wine safari. No makeup, but I got my
choker and my chapstick. – I gotta tell you, we are in the presence of some handsome little
cutie pies driving a truck, and I think all of us
felt very comfortable. – Yeah.
– We’re chill. – Weren’t really thinking about it. – None of us are wearing makeup, and I think we look pretty cute. (camera shutter) – I didn’t think I’d feel self-conscious, but I do feel a little bit
uncomfortable every day just being like, yeah, this is my face. (uplifting pop music) – I don’t know, guys, I don’t know. This is, I didn’t expect it to be hard. More props to Alicia Keys and just women who go out to these big events and truly don’t care about
what people are gonna say. I thought I would be able
to do that no problem, and it’s proving a lot
harder than I thought. – I am about to venture
into a Ladylike video with no makeup on. All right, let’s do it. (group chatting) My bare face, my bare face on set. Through this experience,
I think I’ve learned to, sort of, cut myself some slack. If I’m having an awesome
experience somewhere or doing something really dope, what I’ve learned is to just
capture myself in that moment and post it on social media. Don’t say, oh, I don’t
have my makeup bag with me, oh, this isn’t the right lip color for the selfie that I
would like to post, because I’m missing out on capturing
something really, really dope. – This week, I expected someone to tell me that I looked tired. Instead, I had two people tell me that my face just looked
so clean and so fresh. – Overall, this week wasn’t actually filled with emotional hurdles. It was more of a homecoming. It was more like, you
would prefer to sleep in because that’s who you are,
but I also love makeup. So I don’t think I’m giving
it up after this week. – Sadly, truthfully, I think people do judge other people on their appearance. I don’t give a shit if you
see my face without makeup. – I think, slowly but surely,
we’re getting towards a point where women aren’t expected
to look or act a certain way. People are being allowed
to live out their truth. – So it’s been a week of no makeup. – No makeup at all. – And we’re about to celebrate by posting on Instagram
using the #FreshFaceFriday. So we’re challenging all
of you guys to do the same. – Post those selfies, baby.
– Do it! – Post this Friday on Instagram
using the #FreshFaceFriday. – Hey, ya’ll, click on
that post over there. See more videos from our channel. – Some of our favorites are in there. – And some we like just okay. – But watch anyway. – Because we love you.
– Yeah. – We love you.
– I’m sleepy. (uplifting music)
