We living in times Where make up is almost the order of the day and it’s hard not to notice a lady with makeup these days.
When international artist Alicia Keys said that she’s team #NoMakeUp, our very own Juliana Kanyomozi came out and backed her saying it’s a courageous thing to do.
‘I’m loving Alicia Keys #NoMakeup movement. It’s a very courageous thing to do but can be liberating. We live in a world where we feel trapped and think we must please everyone. And honestly,…. nobody cares,’ she said before going on to add, ‘Ladies we all need to try this, atleast every once in while. Let your skin breath. I do that myself sometimes and it feels so good. Be comfortable in your own natural skin. Your beauty goes way beyond that concealer and foundation, your beauty comes from within you.
Juliana Kanyomozi has further positioned herself as a mentor for many young girls who look up to her and it’s on such grounds that she started a charity school in Fortportal which helps equip girls with skills that can help them advance further in life.
One of the reasons Alicia Keys has moved to team no makeup can be attributed to the need of being herself,
‘Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn’t put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? What if they POSTED it??? These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking. And all of it, one way or another, was based too much on what other people thought of me,’ Alicia said.
