Last weekend, Sarah Evans published a photo to Facebook of her unmade face, which acquired over 3,000 "likes" within ten minutes. The photo was nearing 50,000 "likes" as of the time this article was written.
"I'm being brave and posting a picture of me without makeup!" Evans told her hundreds of thousands of Facebook fans.
"You look better without makeup," one fan wrote underneath the picture.
"I wish people would learn that makeup just ages your face before your time. You are gorgeous without makeup," posted another follower.
"I think people responded to it because it's just very real, and as women we are way, way too hard on ourselves. It just felt good to send a picture out with no makeup -- just me exactly as I am -- and get that kind of response," Evans told theboot.com.
