Merissa Mathew, Founder of Makeup Free Me said: “We’re so grateful to Kosmea for their generosity and support. Our long term aim is to create a world where women and girls everywhere love and celebrate who they are and their support is helping us to make this possible.”

The aim of going makeup free on Friday 29 August 2014, is to acknowledge the unrealistic body image expectations that women put on themselves, each other and that is absorbed from the media and social media on a daily basis. It’s about keeping it real, taking the pressure off and helping women and girls become comfortable in their own skin, inside and out, with or without makeup. The movement is a champion for self-confidence, vitality and empowerment as key contributors to an overall positive self-image.

The issue is broad and complex. A person’s self-image is influenced by a range of physical and mental factors including body image, mental health issues such as depression and anxiety and major societal issues such as bullying and domestic violence.

In 2014, Makeup Free Me is focusing on negative body image, which can lead to eating disorders. Our goal is to raise $250,000 for body image education programs and eating disorder support services run by the Butterfly Foundation. www.makeupfreeme.com.au
