I am very excited to be participating in this excellent idea of Jodie's.
And I'm very honoured that it was partly inspired by my post Face Value.
I am, however, totally going to cheat!
Well, sort of.
I'm putting my best and worst photos on today.
That's OK, isn't it?
This is the best photo (I think) I have of myself, from my wedding day.
Here are some other good shots I have used on Twitter and as profile pictures.
And here's the original...
Photoshopped, you say? Guilty as charged!
But today's photo is for the very worthy cause "Bloggers Without Makeup".
I hardly ever wear makeup anyway, so this isn't a really big stretch for me.
I do however wear eyeliner every day, never leave the house without it on.
I feel my eyes are too small and tired looking without it.
So my photos are usually makeup free anyhow (apart from eyeliner) but I do try to get a good angle, and good lighting. And I usually take about 30 before I find one I'm happy with.
The thing I like the least about my face is my double chin, so I always take a high shot to eliminate it!
Not today...today I'm going eyeliner free, hair not done, totally natural...ta da...
I asked my 5 year old boy to take the photo. It was not long after I washed my hair, I'm in my pyjamas and I'm wearing my reading glasses!
There's not that much difference between my wedding photo and this one...is there? LOL
I look at it and think, "Who's that old lady?"
Oh, and that reminds me. I must lose weight!!!!
Now there's absolutely no excuse not to recognize me on the street.
Thanks again Jodie, this was fun!
I can't wait to see everyone else's.
