‘I woke up like this’: Growing Fonda the no-makeup selfie
There is nothing wrong with ageing gracefully without looking dolled up, as the Hollywood stars have proved
When Beyoncé recorded her hit-song Flawless and had women singing out loud to her lyrics “I woke up like this” it started a social media trend for women to post selfies of what they look like first thing in the morning.
It seems like no-makeup selfies are not only a trend among musicians but actors too. Recently Helen Mirren posted a before and after image of herself as she got ready to attend the Oscars 2019.
Last year Jane Fonda did the same thing when she posted a picture of what she looks like without makeup.
Does this mean more women are unapologetic about how they look without makeup and feel they do not have to stick to societal norms and look glamourous just to take a selfie? That there is nothing wrong with ageing gracefully without looking dolled up?
If these Hollywood stars can post images on social media of a not so perfect look then any woman can feel and look beautiful in whichever way she desires. And it’s sure to cause a media flurry.
