Forty makeup-free days

Q&A | During a challenge to live without foundation, mascara and lip gloss, New Yorker Sarah Ferrara hid, hated, then loved her face

Sarah Ferrara, 24, lives on New York City’s Lower East Side. She recently graduated from The King’s College and now works at a policy think tank in Manhattan. In response to her pastor’s challenge for the church to do a 40-day fast together, she decided to give up makeup.

The fast ended a few weeks ago, so when we Skyped for this interview, she had a day’s worth of eyeliner working it’s way out from under her lashes, but plenty to say about how the fast challenged her beliefs about beauty, femininity, and what constitutes an acceptable public image.
