I Dont Wear Make-up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 488 People

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

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

    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 I need to use the medicinal stuff in terms of cover up. Also...

    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.

    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

    I hate wearing make up

    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...

    I walked through Revlon counter yesterday

    and the lady offered a lipstick, saying it would look good on me. I tried, well it looked perfect, but then I remember someone I love told me, "you don't need it" :D :D besides, once you're wearing make up, you will be addicted to it and feel not confident if you go outside...

    the worse you look without it.

    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'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...

    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??

    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!

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

    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...
