Bringing Natural Beauty Back
Teen girls in a Texas High School are trying to gain self-confidence by not wearing make-up one day of the week.
This article caught my attention, because I didn't realize why it was such a big deal because a lot of people here don't wear make-up to school. This school is much bigger than ours though, so I'm sure there are more cliques and probably more competition.
I hardly ever wear make-up to school, but I don't do it to gain self-confidence, I am just to lazy to put it on every morning. I think it's a good idea that they're doing it for self-confidence though. It probably helps some girls feel more comfortable when others are doing it with them. I also thought it was great that the guys in their school were supporting them, because most girls are so concerned with their looks because of guys which can sometimes end up getting out of hand. This probably really boosted their confidence!
I think another good thing about this is seeing girls help other girls, because that's something you don't see a lot.
