I’m Blogging Nude.

by Lori Dwyer on May 13, 2010 · 37 comments

No, not really. But that certainly got your attention, didn’t it? Weirdos.

The very awesomeness Jodie at Mummy Mayhem is running a very special meme today (Well, actually, it’s tomorrow, and I’ll edit the linky list in then. I got all excited and jumped the gun. Sad but true.) It’s called Bloggers Without Makeup and it is one truly brilliant idea. And muchly self explanatory, really. I suggested ‘Bloggers In the Raw’ where we all get nekkid, but no one else seemed too keen on that idea. I’m still up for it. Let me know if you want in. I’m only kind of joking, really.

I’m a basic make up kinda chicky. I discovered the wonders of mascara at the tender age of fourteen and I’ve been hooked ever since. I did go through a phase there in high school of doing a full foundation, concealer, blush, lip liner and lip stick, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara, and then some highlighter
on my cheekbones.

I’m happy to say I’ve grown past that.

But I do wear a smidgem of eyebrow pencil, some eyeliner and a lashing of mascara every single day. Rain, hail or yoga class. Leave the house or not. It just makes me feel better. And isn’t that the aim of the game?

Which brings me to here. The Aussies have probably already seen this damn cool magazine cover, featuring three Aussie celebs sans make up artistry.

Ain’t Ricki Lee cute, with her freckles? That’s the brunette, OS’ers. She’s a funky size 14 and she rocks hard.

Thea at Do I Really Wanna Blog? did a post not too long ago on the photos we use as our blog pictures and our Twitter pictures. I hate to say, I’m not even guilty of picking a pretty one. My Twitter and FaceBook pictures are of me holding a camera over my face. As is that one on the top left. And I use my Random Button for everything else.

 On the off chance I do publish a photo of me, it’s normally from my wedding album. Less than a year old, $200 worth of hair and make up. They look damn good. And let’s face it- for that price, they oughtta.

So… here I am, ladies and jellyfish. Lori, totally nude without a stitch of make up on. And bad lighting to boot.

Not too shabby, eh? (Just watch what you say here people. I know where you live. Well, not really. But I’m bloody sure the Google God can help me find you).

You're lovely! And in a totally non-weird-non-creepy-non-psychotic way, you have an adorable and kissable nose. You know, if I wasn't a stranger a bajillion miles away. I'm sure your husband feels the same, in a totally different kind of way.

I'lll be quiet now.

Thank you for sharing your true self with us!

No wonder I didn't recognize any of those celebs – it's an Aussie magazine! LOL

You do look lovely – glad I got to read all these new blogs thanks to bloggers without makeup.


Natacha May 15, 2010 at 9:32 pm

You look fabulous!


PinkPatentMaryJanes May 15, 2010 at 5:12 pm

Love it – and those eyes of your need no enriching – just so beautiful.

Oh my gosh, pretty!!!


Christie May 14, 2010 at 5:40 pm

Shabby should never be used in a sentence describing your photo! I had you pictured completely different (imagining what was behind the camera in your profile shot). But I LOVE how the real you looks!


tiff(threeringcircus) May 14, 2010 at 5:25 pm

Such a natural beauty. Gorgeous eyes.


melissa May 14, 2010 at 5:23 pm

You are naturally stunning – gorgeous and glowing (and amazing eyes!).


Nomie May 14, 2010 at 4:56 pm

I'm a the works girl, almost every day! Gorgeous!


Becky May 14, 2010 at 4:00 pm

Beautiful and your eyes are just stunningly blue and clear!

Beautiful + funny. What a great combo! Thanks for sharing. x

You look beautiful. So many new blogs I am finding through this. Gorgeous eyes.


Tamsyn May 14, 2010 at 8:59 am

Wow, you look great without make-up and your eyes… beautiful! I never leave the house without mascara and lipgloss and have never been to work without a full face of make-up (foundation, concealer, eyeliner.. the works). I often wonder if my workmates would fall off their chairs if they saw what I really look like!


Megan May 14, 2010 at 8:47 am

Great shot, Lori – you look gorgeous! xx


Ali May 14, 2010 at 3:14 pm

Gorgeous eyes


Wanderlust May 14, 2010 at 2:13 am

Bloody gorgeous babe! Woo hoo! Oh, and when I successfully meet the weight loss challenge I've undertaken I'm totally doing a blogging in the raw (full monty) meme. And I'm tagging you!


In Real Life May 14, 2010 at 12:02 am

You look fabulous! So pretty!


Thea May 13, 2010 at 9:27 pm

Thea May 13, 2010 at 9:26 pm

You are lovely!!

I always always wear eyeliner, every day, never leave the house without it…or feel nekid if I happen to forget.

This is so much fun!


Brenda May 13, 2010 at 8:27 pm

You are The Beautiful. The End.


Lulu May 13, 2010 at 6:11 pm

Wow, you look GREAT without makeup.

I want to participate too so will have to check out Jodie`s blog. I never go outside without make-up but my facebook picture for awhile was one without makeup (but it was black and white- so not too hidious!)

You look beautiful and I agree you have lovely blue eyes!


Jodie at Mummy Mayhem May 13, 2010 at 4:55 pm

Fabulous. Just fabulous, Lori! You look wonderful! Lucy is right – beautiful blue eyes!!

Thanks so much for getting involved.



lori May 13, 2010 at 4:13 pm

You're FAB-ulous chicky!
And just for the record, I wear a smidge of mascara and some eyebrows everyday too. It just feels right.


Lucy May 13, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Goddess with the blue-est eyes I ever saw! xx
