It’d be an understatement to say that former secretary of state and history-making democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has had a very, very, very hard week.
We all know what happened, so let’s not revisit it.
What matters now is that Clinton has made her way back into the spotlight. At an event for the Children’s Defense Fund in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday night — her first public appearance since her concession speech — she had an unexpected, rather refreshing look: wearing far less makeup than usual, her hair without its signature waves.
As a human being, not wearing makeup should absolutely not be a big deal at all for Clinton. But as a politician who has been under an intense spotlight for years, making her first appearance with a nationally televised speech and not wearing much makeup, it felt like a statement.
Twitter thought so too.
For some, it appeared as though Clinton had just about had it. Months and months of attempting to look polished every second is exhausting, and now, after the election, Clinton can relax and look how she wants to look.

My aesthetic is @HillaryClinton giving a post-election speech with no makeup on because queen truly has no more fucks to give. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Watching Hillary Clinton- makeup free yet elegant- speaking at the CDF broke my heart & resolved my resistance to Trump’s bigotry & hate.
