Makeup Free Mondays are exactly what they sound like. Women across the world pledge to not put on any makeup on Mondays and then take a picture of themselves and post it on Facebook and Twitter. Then, these women give each other compliments and confidence.
Many tennis players have already agreed to participate in Makeup Free Mondays such as former players Mary Carillo and Chris Evert, along with Serena Williams. Unfortunately, there haven’t been any pictures of the tennis stars without any makeup on that have surfaced online yet. Hopefully one will show up soon so we can be sure the women are actually keeping up with the program. If we see one, we’ll show it to you!
Mary Carillo was a professional tennis player who played on the WTA tour for four years. The highest rank she ever received was number 33. Mary played mixed doubles with John McEnroe during the 1977 French Open, where they won the championship. She is mainly now focused on being a sports broadcaster on ESPN and the USA Network. Chris Evert is well known in the tennis world. She was a world number 1 female tennis player who won 18 Grand Slam single championships, pretty impressive!
Serena Williams needs no introduction. She is the current number 1 ranked women’s tennis player and is just coming off a Wimbledon championship. Here is her interview on “real beauty.”
What do you think makes someone beautiful?
This answer is definitely cliché, but true… beauty is skin deep. I think a person’s character, confidence and integrity are some of the most beautiful traits one can possess.
How do you deal with the pressure for body perfection in our culture?
There is no such thing as perfection. It’s very important to love your body and be confident with who you are.
If you could give your younger self advice about beauty, what would it be?
I would tell my younger self to get enough sleep and drink more water!
What’s your one, can’t live without beauty product?
Nail polish. I can’t stand it when my nails aren’t done. I actually carry a small nail kit in my purse that has nail polish remover pads, cuticle oil, a file and nail polish. It’s perfect when I’m on the go.
