I absolutely love what that these girls are trying to accomplish with Operation Beautiful!! We live in a media based culture that is centered around appearance. Now, I am not saying that make-up is a bad thing (I appreciate a little eyeliner or mascara every now and again), but this idea that make-up is essential for everyday life among girls my age and younger is staggering. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard some of my own friend say that they NEED make-up; and that they can’t leave the house without it on. Well, I am here to tell you that you don’t need it!!! You are beautiful the way you are and you don’t need to hide behind pounds of foundation and eyeliner.
