Woman Breaks Down Why You Shouldn't Apologize For Not Wearing Makeup (Video)

Women always feel the need to come up with excuses for things we shouldn't have to explain: why we chose to wear the same jeans two days in a row, why our hair is in a ponytail again or why we're not wearing makeup.

Lilly Singh says f*ck that.

The YouTube personality recently created a video to explain why she'll never apologize for her appearance again.

She had an epiphany after texting colleagues to warn them she looked “like a mess” on a day she was too busy to properly get ready.

She realized,

Looking like yourself is not something you should have to be sorry for.

After retracting every apology she'd ever made on behalf of her appearance, Singh announced,

I'm not sorry. This is how I look without makeup, and I'm happy about it.

Her declaration is both thought-provoking and relatable; many of us can remember times when we've apologized for our appearances. But we shouldn't. We are beautiful with or without makeup. And it's important to remember that.
