Yesterday I posted a little blurb about #FreshFaceAppreciation and how makeup can be a wonderful tool, but shouldn’t be a crutch for feeling beautiful. I mentioned that I’d like to put together a gallery of bare-faced beauties, and was rewarded with a handful of submissions. Turns out they are all cosplayers!

It may not seem like much to those of the male persuasion, or to ladies who’ve never dabbled in makeup, but the above is actually quite brave. My hat is off to them. If I wore a hat. Also, Catherine’s (of GSTQ) face kills me. <3

Click the photos for links to their portfolios! I threw in a different one of myself starring my cat Sprinkles, too. 

Feel free to submit your own to my inbox - I may do another in the future! :D
