    On school days I have no time to!

    I mean, i would take 10 extra minutes of sleep over doing my makeup any day! But for special events and stuff, I'll occasionally throw on some makeup. Just a little bit though, not cakey!

    I've never worn heavy make up.

    When I do wear make up I only wear eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, and light powder foundation. I've always been told "less is more"

    It Was An Addiction...

    I remember when I was younger, I got into the idea of wearing make up on a daily basis.  I started to feel naked without it.  It really freaked me out how dependent I became upon it. Then I just...stopped wearing it.  I've gotten now that I like to wear it, just...

    I Dont Understand...

    Why do girls feel like they have to cake all that make up on? Most of the times making them look like a clown. I only wear a little foundation and some light eye shadow. And thats only to weddings or to homecoming and prom. I feel disgusting in make up. It makes me feel like i am...

    but when I do I only use concealer

    and setting powder. I've been told I'm not a woman because I don't put on a full makeup face every day. -.-

    Maybe some eyeshadow a few times a year,

    mascara and eyeliner a few times a week, but I wear lip balm every day. Foundation gives me breakouts.

    I think its fun to put makeup in

    and everything but my skin absolutely hates makeup. Even if I use makeup that's made for sensitive skin, my skin hates it and doesn't react well to it. Its so frustrating.

    the makeup I own sits in a bag

    for a few years and barely gets any use. Nobody seems bothered that I don't wear makeup, so I'm going to keep it up.

    My personal views on makeup-

    when I have to wake up in the morning for school, dance, work, etc all I want to do is stay in bed. Makeup is seen to most people as a way to hide their flaws and look better, which is why makeup was started,the Egyptians made it to define and lighten their faces to be more...

    I'm not really into makeup.

    I'll wear makeup depends on what mood I'm in or for special occasions. I don't like putting too much on. Just the simple mascara, eyeliner, and eye shadow.

    Well for being a cosmetologist in training this

    is an odd thing for someone like me to post. If you really think about makeup in actuality, it was made to enhance the beauty. Not completely mask it with another completely different looking face. So as of tonight, I'm swearing off excessive amounts of makeup because the real...

    or use it really, I use the basics: primer, concealer, foundation and blush. I don't use bronzer Often or eyeliner, eyeshadow or mascara unless it's a really special occasion. About 5 years ago a friend showed me how to apply eyeliner- it looks easy but I can't be bothered with...

    I Wonder.

    Sometimes I wonder what girls with really thick and heavy makeup really look like underneath all that 'layers'. I mean, I think simple / natural looking makeup can look okay, but there are a few others that make me want to run my finger through their face just to see how thick...

    Yeah this is a new thing.

    I just can't be bothered anymore. I don't even wear it on special occasions. I literally just don't see the point anymore because I think I look fine without it. But every now and then I slap it on.

    Not anymore.I'm tired of waking up 30 minutes

    early and painting my face just to go to go to school(which I hate ) and home. I'm tired of wearing it anywhere period. Even though I don't wear much and my flaws now show, It's feels good to just be free and not having to worry about it.

    I use to wear a face full of foundation,

    eyeshadow, eyeliner, blush, and lipgloss. I did this clear through high school. Then I realized how bad my skin was, always oily and acne problems. After going to wearing nothing but mascara, I can honestly say I like how my skin looks without makeup on. Now I only wear it for...
