Real Beauty Moment: No Makeup For Me

I definitely struggled with my beauty growing up because everyone used to wear makeup.

I don’t have the patience for wearing makeup. The makeup I’m wearing now wasn’t done by me. My mother just taught me to take care of your skin, and that’s all the beauty that you need.


For BCB’s Real Beauty Moments, women share their beauty testimonies with us wherever we meet them.
