Natural beauty-cos we're all beautiful XD

The Natural Look is a look i am all for as i think it looks so much better then piling on loads of makeup,not only does it clog pores it hides the real you.
In this post i have taken natural beauty to the extreme!
Alot of youths buy beauty treatments from stores (they can be full of chemicals that are actually not good for your body) so why not make your own,not only will you know whats going in it,it is SO fun to do!
And make it more interesting by planning a home spar day with your mates! whats not to love <3
