    Well not often at all.

    I feel so dumb wearing it. I also feel like I don't know what I'm doing when I'm applying it, ugh

    I just feel like people are going to be all

    'what the heck is she doing?' Cause I'm almost 15 and have never worn it before .-. I also have no idea what I'm doing and my mom isn't much help.. She got me some basic eyeliner and stuff but when I asked her about it she basically said you just put it on ( so helpful -.-) I...

    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 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 feel like the more you wear make-up,

    the worse you look without it.

    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??

    I've just never had anything on my face.

    no masscara, eye shadow, blush, eye liner, not even lipstick! I feel like I would want to because high school is like ... where your self esteem gets shot to hell, but I have no idea how to, hell I don't think the house has like anything make up related. However, the other day...

    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!

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    so much although I admire the cool things that some people can do with it. I hate putting on a brand new face just to have it taken off again and I don't think I've truly worn makeup since high school when I wore it once or twice a year. It feels gross on my skin and almost...

    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.

    I don't. Specifically,

    I can't. :DI can't even apply compact powder and foundation on my face. Once I used mascara and eye liner, my brother laughed a lot and said I looked like a creepy lolita doll -_- and don't ever talk about blush on or lipstick. Those things are such disasters to be applied on my...

    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...

    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...

    Well at least on a regular basis.

    Personally, I don't really like make-up.

    Maybe a bit of lip gloss/lipstick every now and then, but that's it. I have nothing against it, but I can't stand excess amounts of make-up that practically hide one's real features or appearance to the point where one is considered fake or just not natural. Plus, I have acne so...
