Step away from the lipstick.
A group of girls from Texas are going without makeup every Tuesday, but it seems to be a trend few Penn Manor girls are likely to follow.
In their effort to redefine beauty, a group of six girls from Colleyville Heritage High School, in Texas made a push to promote self-confidence and female empowerment by walking the halls without makeup.
Here at Penn Manor High School, it is rare to see girls without makeup. Many say they wear makeup because they think it makes themselves look better and would not go without it.
“I definitely care how other people see me,” senior Brittany Wright said.
Although going to school without makeup could be a challenge for girls who are used to cover up, mascara, eye liner and blush, there are some who wouldn’t mind joining The “Redefining Beautiful” campaign, as it is called.
“I’m confident about myself whether I’m wearing makeup or not” said Dani Warfel, a student at Penn Manor High School.
“I think girls at Penn Manor should be more confident in themselves because they don’t need all that makeup. The key is to make it look like your not wearing any,” said senior Jeremy Vital.
The Texas girls were inspired to start this campaign after hearing about Operation Beautiful, which has a goal to improve self confidence for females everywhere. The members of the group are responsible for posting anonymous notes and messages in public bathrooms and other locations for other women to later find.
“They should also know they are beautiful without it as well and I feel a lot of girls forget that,” said Jeff Ford.
