Yup. i woke up like this—leftover long wear lipstick crusted to my lips, splotchy skin and snarly hair (swipe to see that time i yawned trying to take this photo. not cute.
today i’m standing with @iamfashionlaine
to launch the #wokeupthiswaychallenge
& bring some realness back to social media. i love to post my fun fashion photos, but today i want to remind myself and everyone that social media is here to be a tool to connect, not a comparison trap. it can affect people’s ideas of happiness since we all compare ourselves to each other’s “perfect” lives and highlight reels we see in posts but we can harness its power for good and it has connected me to so many of you who i now consider bffs❤️
i’d love for you to be part of this challenge too and bring awareness and spread this much-needed conversation around the world. let’s unite and do this altogether! see below for how to participate and share:
1) post of photo of yourself of how you look when you wake up in the morning (no hair done, no makeup, no filter!!) with the hashtag #wokeupthiswaychallenge
and talk about how you’re spreading the message to bring realness back to social media
2) tag 3 (or more!) friends to challenge them next to post a morning photo
3) mention in your caption that if people don’t want to participate by posting a photo, instead donate money to @ladygaga’s @btwfoundation
which is committed to promoting the wellness of young people and inspiring them to create a kinder, braver world.
you’re it! i nominate you to take on this challenge next! are you brave enough to post on social media what you look like when you wake up in the morning? 😘
