Women Go Makeup-Free At Work For A Day


– [Together] Yeah. (upbeat music) – I recently went off birth control and it’s the first time
I’ve ever experienced acne. I’m worried that, I don’t know
why I care what people think, but I guess I’m worried about what other people are going to think. – So I think there is some professionalism related to how you present yourself. Guys don’t usually wear
makeup, so why should girls. – There is something about putting on makeup that does make me just stand up a little taller and go at the world with a
little more confidence. I don’t look tired cause I’m not. I’m not feeling sick cause I’m not. I’m just not wearing makeup right now. – This is probably the first time that I haven’t at least put
eyeliner on since high school. Normally I would do a
very heavy black eyeliner, some mascara and I would
cover under my eyes. So it’s not a lot but it’s enough that I feel very different. – I’m on my way to work
wearing no makeup whatsoever. When people aren’t wearing makeup, their humanity kind of radiates through and I put a little bit of coverup on some of these spots and scars here. – This is actually the first time that I’m going bareface to work. I normally at least
have some foundation on or something that just
covers up my blemishes. – I’m really excited about the prospect of just doing this all day and
not worrying about smudging. – I’m not very confident. I really shouldn’t be
scared of showing my face. This is my natural face. – It doesn’t feel like the real me. The real me feels like me with makeup on which is also a fucking
terrible thing to say. – No makeup with my dear friend. – No makeup. I feel fine, honestly. I’m not really thinking about it. When I see myself I’m
like oh, that’s different. – I can eat a messy lunch without worrying about my lipstick. – So I took some selfies at lunch. – Yes. – And I was like oh it’s
actually not that bad. – No, you look great. – You look great too. Knowing that there are other girls with me not wearing makeup. – Yeah. – It just makes me feel like,
oh, I’m not the only one. – Yeah and then you look at
them and they look great. – Yeah. – And then they tell you you look great. So it’s just like this really
wonderful cycle of acceptance. – I’ve been told that
I look glowy and dewy like a glossier beauty
without any makeup on today. – Makeup in general,
I think it accentuates a certain type of beauty but no makeup also accentuates a
different type of beauty. – Definitely. – And I think both are so important. – I’ve been feeling pretty good. I wonder if the guys are gonna notice. – Alright, Price. – Ash. – Question for you. – Okay. – Have you noticed
anything different about me or a lot of the women
in the office today? – Oh, shit. Does it have to do with makeup? – It does. – Okay. – Have you noticed anything about all the women at Buzzfeed today? – I actually did not and
now I feel really terrible, was I supposed to? – Okay, this is weird. – Uh, I. Really don’t see anything different. – Okay, I’m not wearing makeup today. – Oh. – You know, my thoughts
on women wearing makeup are like my thoughts on
women doing most things, which is do your thing. – You don’t have lipstick on. – Yeah. – You don’t have any eyeliner on either. – Wow, okay. – None of us are wearing makeup today. – Oh, really? Oh, you look as beautiful as always. No, seriously though,
I didn’t notice that. For me it doesn’t matter
whether you wear makeup or not. Whatever you’re happy doing. – I posted a picture of my fresh-ass face. – You did? – On Instagram and you commented that you had no idea that
I was wearing makeup today. – I didn’t realize that
you weren’t wearing makeup. You don’t look tired, you don’t look sick like the normal comments that women get when they don’t wear makeup. – You didn’t notice that most of the women you’ve come across are totally barefaced? – No. I’m like trying to go back through all the women I’ve seen today. – I still love you. – [Camerawoman] Do you? – Yeah. – [Camerawoman] You still
love me, pimples and all? – Mmhm. – Thanks, bae. – This is the end of the workday. I made it. It wasn’t that bad actually. You know the camaraderie
of all the women at work also not wearing makeup really made me feel more secure in it too. – Embrace all the flaws, all the scars, all these thoughts you have in your head, just let em go and take
it away with a makeup wipe and just be yourself. (upbeat music) – So as you may have
noticed, Boldly is now As/Is. – But don’t worry. You’ll still get all the
