Dallas Traffic Anchor Goes Makeup-Free, Says ‘It Should Be a Choice’

WFAA traffic anchor Demetria Obilor wants female news personalities to know it’s ok to go makeup-free.

On Monday, the morning personality went on the air without makeup and her hair pulled back in a bun.

She posted a clip of her doing the traffic telling viewers why she decided to do it.

“NOT WEARING MAKEUP AT WORK,” she said. “I love makeup, but I don’t like when women get pressured to wear makeup in the workplace. I’ve heard so many stories about this 😤 Wearing makeup should not be a requirement. It should be a choice.”

Obilor got a ton of positive feedback on Twitter. Some followers even asked in artist Alicia Keys inspired her hosting the Grammy’s while wearing little to no makeup.

“I love this. It is combating the social norms for women in the work place,” wrote Representative Ajay Pittman.

Her original tweet has close to 800 comments.
