Break Up with Your Makeup + Contest & Giveaway

This is a sponsored post but all opinions are my own!

If you're a long time reader of Royally Pink, you may remember last year I did a post on "breaking up with your makeup" and Rosacea & redness. Since writing that post in June 2014, I surely have had my fair share of skin issues.

I haven't experienced Rosacea but between psoriasis, a heavy duty battle with eczema, and an allergic reaction to fragrance, I have a whole new understanding of skin issues, especially on the face. It's definitely jarring when you wake up in the morning and see peeling, red, or dry skin when you look in the mirror.

Some days, my skin was so bad, I couldn't wear make-up at all (because it made my skin look even worse) and would have to go to work or run errands sans foundation or concealer, which made me feel less than awesome.

Everyone IS beautiful and make-up only enhances that beauty that we all have. I wear make-up because it's fun to play around with color and the ability to transform your look with just a few products is pretty awesome, if you think about it.

It's tempting to want to use make-up to cover up your imperfections (that is what most people, including myself, use it for) but sometimes, like in my case, it can make things worse. Sometimes, your skin just needs to breathe!

And that is where Break Up with Your Makeup comes in!

What Break Up with Your Makeup does is to help educate and engage women to feel powerful and confident in their own skin, despite if they have flawless or problem prone skin.

We want everyone to feel beautiful and confident in their own skin, no matter what it looks like, no matter if you wear make-up or go natural! 

Breakup With Your Makeup wants to reward you for being confident, even when you feel less than your best. 

You can win an all expense paid trip for two to the New York Film Festival this fall; you must post a submission by June 24th and then voting for submissions will be from July 27th-August 14th. 

In order to enter the contest, post a #NOMAKEUP selfie (scary, I know, but we will all be ok!) and tell everyone how you stay feeling confident when your skin isn't it's best.

Submit your post to the digital hub (below) in order to be qualified BUT you can also qualify to win more cool prizes if you vote on submissions!

In the same breath.... you have a chance RIGHT NOW to win a fun #NoMakeup inspired giftpack filled with lots of skincare goodies!

I know you're all gorgeous, make-up or not, but I also know that it is tough to feel confident when your skin is acting up. This is a great way to spread the love and feel more confident in yourself (and maybe win some fun prizes!)

Good luck everyone!
