    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 Absolutely Hate Wearing Makeup But ..

    If it wasn't for my job of selling cosmetics, I'd rather roll over and perish b4 laying that face paint on my skin. Unfortunately though until I can find a new job, I have to wear it. It feels like I'm wearing a mask, and I so badly want to tell those women no matter...

    Just Don't Need It

    I like how I look also without make up, some mornings I look into the mirror the first thought I have "oh I am so pretty today". Not every morning is like this, but also they are not rare :). I have tried to wear make up, mainly for acting, as I do hobby acting like every 5...

    Not Necessary

    Every family member and female I know (and even a few males) wear make up. I never saw the point in it other than it granting the wearer a mask. Why hide behind an illusion and allow your true self to get lost? Its all part of a persons identity I suppose. I choose not to wear...

    Scared Of It...but Not In The Normal Sense

    Im scared to wear make-up, but not in the normal sense. If there even is a normal sense. Im just scared of becoming dependent on it. Im scared that once I start wearing it all the time that Ill think I NEED it to look pretty. I do know Im pretty without it. My skins not that bad...

    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??

    What's The Point?

    I have a few people in my family that LOVE make-up, and hate to be seen without it, and being a dancer until I was 12 I was always hearing and being told that girls are supposed to wear it. I always had to do my own make-up for dance shows, so I know how to do it. I just never...

    Well...I Do Sometimes

    It's not that I WON'T wear makeup. I just don't. I don't want to go to the trouble of putting on makeup on a regular basis. I've never been much of a "girly-girl", and I don't really care to start now. I try to look feminine and moderately stylish, but I'm pretty okay with who I...

    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...

    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...

    Well, Maybe Not Never

    ...but rarely. It's a hassle, and I feel so "fake" with it on.  When I do wear it, it's just a little eye liner. I think I look better without it!

    Make-up

    I'm 13 years old and nearly EVERYONE I know wears make up. For me, I don't wear it because it makes you look more mature and grown up and if it was possible I would stay this age forever. I have studied Psychology for 3 years and I think I have enough knowledge of it to have a...

    A Naked Look

    I don't wear make-up because people say I have this natural glow and rosy cheeks. I believe that people wear make-up are those who want to enrich or accent their face more to reveal the beauty facade. I only need my trusty powder to make me look fresh and flaunt my natural look...

    What I Think About Make-up

    I Don't wear make-up often. Maybe some eyeshadow, mascara, or somthing to cover up zits and my dark circles under my eyes, but other than that I hardly wear make-up. I just don't like it. It makes my skin feel dirty and it's so easy to screw up. It just ruins your face even more...
