    I usually wear makeup,

    whether it's a lot of makeup or a little bit of makeup. I wear it because it makes me feel beautiful! & that's all that matters to me. But here I am without ANY makeup.. Something no one ever see's!

    Confidence

    I only started wearing make up about 2 years ago but now I'm never without my eyeliner or mascara. Even if I'm walking my dog I'll wear some, I actually feel less confident without it on -x-x-x

    ..pretty Much!

    It is a rare occaision that I'm not wearing at least my "basics" - eyeliner, foundation, powder.  Those are the bare minimum essentials that I NEVER leave home without and have a spare in my car for those end of the day touch-ups.  I prefer to...

    Hiding The Ugly Stuff And Enhancing The Pretty Stuff

    I have acne scars because I had it bad as a teen and nothing worked to get rid of it. So I wear foundation, concealer, and powder. I add mascara to add to my already long, dark, curly lashes, eyeliner to frame my big, brown, bedroom eyes, and bronze blush to accent my high...

    Most of the Time.....

    There is rarely a time that I am not wearing makeup. It sometimes is a chore to have the effort in looking presentable, but in the end I am satisfied with what looks back at me in the mirror. Although there are things that i would love to change about myself I can say that...

    Hide Away

    I wear makeup to hide my face because I hate the way it looks. Even then I can't get my makeup to look right. I wish I could like the way I looked without makeup so I don't have to put on a new face everyday, or hide everyday, but I just don't.

    Makeup Is Fun For Me.

    I remember being so excited when I was finally allowed to wear makeup when I was younger. It was like a rite of passage to finally be able to wear makeup. I love going into the makeup aisle and buying fresh mascara. When I was in the Army, I never wore makeup with my uniform...

    Make up

    I don't know if I'm the only girl who does this but I always have to wear make up before I'm going outside. It may sound weird but it's because I feel so self conscious in my own skin and like everyone is mentally judging me in their minds with bad comments. The reason for this...
