Bianca Umali no makeup selfie: Yay or Nay?

January 18, 2017

Kapuso actress Bianca Umali recently posted a selfie on her Facebook account, which aims to encourage women to be proud of their own skin and not to rely on makeup too much.

She wrote:

Girls!! Just wanted to share something with all of you. This is not to judge anyone… I noticed how make up seem so important nowadays. I honestly expect make up to be used occasionally. Not every single day. I have observed how a lot of females cannot leave their homes without putting anything on their faces. Well, yes, we all know what make up can do. And yes, make up is AMAZING. But what I’m sad about is that most of the girls I have observed are more confident about themselves WITH make up on than having LESS or NONE. Here’s the thing we should ALWAYS remember. Papa  [God] made each of us unique. Not only on the outside but also on the inside. So why not flaunt that beautiful face of yours without covering anything and leaving it how it really is?

I dare every girl/female/woman who gets to read this to post a photo without anything (filters, make up, etc.) on their faces but a smile. Tag me. I want you, yes you, to show everyone that YOU are contented and confident with your natural beauty.

What’s the secret to being beautiful?



However, it appears a number of ladies took offense at her post, with some claiming that in the picture, Bianca is not totally makeup free.

 @itsfatiful also highlighted the fact that makeup is not just for aesthetics.

Despite the backlash,  @zumiclaire  and @ivan-289  understood the actress’s opinion.
