I Dont Wear Make-up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 377 People

    It's because my mom never wanted me to wear

    makeup either. Before, I was kinda curious going to school with make-up on since everybody was doing it. But now since it's kinda overrated to say that almost all girls wear make-up, I don't feel like that anymore.

    Do I Need To?

    I would venture to say, no.  It is true that most people wear at least a little, by my age, and I look really young and almost childish in comparison at times.  I am frankly too lazy to spend the effort and time in the morning though.  I love playing around for...

    I don't think I or anyone needs make up.

    I really don't like wearing it because it makes me feel weird. Everyone is naturally gorgeous!

    I prefer not to wear makeup.

    I have worn makeup to work and on special occasions but I don't like a lot of makeup and generally I don't wear it. I prefer the natural look, and I don't want a bunch of junk on my face blocking my pores,they need to breathe.i believe that beauty is simplicity.

    The reason why I don't wear makeup?

    I'm lazy. It's that simple. Every now and then I might put mascara or eyeliner on but that's if I'm feeling.. Well... Not lazy. Plus, I believe I'm beautiful the way I am, so why put on makeup? (; I have way to much confidence for my own good haha

    not at all! I think about it ,

    but then I always think- "what if people like me with make up on better?" like it would cover up my natural face, and id have to wear it over and over again so I can feel pretty. I don't want people to say "Oh she's pretty!" when I have makeup on, but when I take it off, they go...

    I only like nail polish every long now

    and then if that's even considered make up, and I like to wear lip gloss all the time. I like a little eye shadow but I don't wear it. I hate blush, foundation...all the ones that go all over your face and clog your pores I feel so gross in it and honestly I feel insecure in...

    I believe if you think

    that only girls who wear make-up are beautiful, you're messed up. Lots of them look better than then all the girls that treat their faces like coloring books!

    The only thing I sometimes put on is eyeliner

    and even then I always go without. I don't wear it because I think it looks stupid on me and because I don't know how to apply it correctly. To me it just seems like a waste of time, effort and products. Is anyone else like this??

    Well at least on a regular basis.

    I wear make up if I'm going somewhere really nice like a nice dinner out but other than that never wear it. I did a photo shoot for my senior pics and I had to have this lady do my makeup cause I didn't really know how to

    That's right - I do not wear any makeup. But for a mans perspective, at least mine, the less makeup on a woman, the better.  Why are you trying to be someone you are not? The other day I saw this woman on the bus - I think she could be a very beautiful woman with no makeup...

    Light makeup is the most I ever wear.

    Perhaps a single stroke of eye liner or a light lip gloss. Maybe even foundation and whatnot if I'm in that rare mood. I don't feel the need to put on several layers of dust and paint; it's absolutely tedious and I refuse to allow anyone such a falsified fantasy.

    I'm not a fan of makeup.

    I guess I'm not girly enough for it. It's too much work and the good stuff is expensive. I feel like the only reason I'll ever have to wear makeup is if I decide to be a clown or in my casket lol but other than that I'm good. I hate seeing women looking like cupcakes or little...

    I've nothing against people

    who wear it. When I was younger, my mom never let me wear it, so I'm used to being without it. Honestly, I'm somewhat thankful I don't wear it. I'll wear it when my friends put it on me, though, hahaha.

    I do not ever wear makeup.

    I am sensitive yes, but even the physician's formula and hypo-allergenic types I don't wear. I am just the type that feels better to show my real face. I am not against others wearing makeup and unlike those who try to make rules and enforce it on others like the gay world...

    Natural

    I like being natural. I like the way I look without make-up more than plastering my face full of things that make me look unnatural and awkward. I love hearing that other people my age don't wear make-up every day.. and feel sad for the ones who say "I need to wear make-up to...
