I Don't Wear Makeup Often

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,058 People

    Most days I only wear lip balm.

    If I get acne, bug bites, or any scarring on my face I cover it up with concealer until it goes away. Sometimes I wear mascara too but not daily; I want to try eyeliner but I don't have any.

    Better get caught with makeup on from time to

    time than the opposite. Some wouldn't get out of the house without makeup, where did this dependency start? Self-confidence and charm are the key, beauty is just relative and comes from the inside.

    I've never liked makeup.

    I was more of a tomboy growing up. I only wear it when I absolutely have to. My sister says I look just as good without it anyway.

    I don't wear make up often

    because it takes too much time putting it on and then a hassle to maintain it throughout the day. Not my cup of tea. Although I do feel pretty when I wear some.

    Makeup is expensive and takes a lot of time to

    put on. I think that makeup can actually damage or ruin your skin in some way maybe that's why some girls faces looks like it's breaking out without it on, but I usually will just wear light blush, lipstick or lip gloss, and eyeliner. I have been told that I am pretty and...

    I don't wear makeup too often.

    I only wear things like clear lip gloss, maybe lipstick, and nail polish. I'm wanting to try mascara as I realized I don't look too bad with it on (my friend put it on me at a sleepover one time). But I usually only put on 1 kind of makeup if I want to wear some. I don't want...

    I wear makeup whenever I feel like it,

    just like any other girl has the right to. It doesn't make me any less trans, nor does it make me any less of a girl.

    I'm way to lazy for makeup.

    I reserve it for "special occasions", and even then the furthest I go is some eyeliner. I admire the ladies that show up early to work with a full face of makeup, it takes time and effort. Heck I barely do my hair in the morning. Even on the profile pic I dont have makeup and my...

    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 rarely wear makeup.

    Unless I don't feel like myself or I am trying to look nice. Or to cover up my acne.

    I never usually wear make up,

    but I got really bored. I asked a few people if I should wear it to school, a lot say I should so what do you all think? ^^^

    I'm worried other women judge me

    for this, or that guys don't think I'm beautiful. When I do rarely make the effort (on a big night out or something) people always seem so amazed and tell me it looks nice. No one ever says this when I'm not wearing any... But it is just so uncomfortable, I smudge it, it is just...

    I dont really wear make up at all to be honest.

    Only to special occasions and even then Im reluctant. You see I was sort of a tomboy, I never really bothered with makeup or fashion or doing something with my hair. My mother and I dont have a really close relationship and she never showed me any of this. Today I regret it. I...

    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...

    More like ever! If I did,

    I'd create a standard of how I look on a regular basis, so without it I'd look strange. Besides, I don't like having to put effort in my appearance, I'm too lazy. Just by putting on my glasses I already brighten up my face

    I don't wear makeup at all.

    And I'm constantly being told I look underage and young. It's really annoying. I'm positive it's because I don't wear makeup but so what. Not wearing makeup makes me happy and confident. Yous some haters

    You'd be amazed at how much makeup can change

    an persons image..to me it's like your lying to others!? It deceives so many. If you watch a female take off their makeup you will know what I mean. You'd be amazed at how eye-liner, foundation, powder can do ... For me I just prefer to wear NONE of that, for one it's bad for...

    and my eyebrows look good as sh*t seriously (sorry my phones pictures aren't amazing) I've seen commercials but my eyebrows are so thick I didn't really need to fill them in. Man was I wrong. Also I learned how to curl my eyelashes which is terrifying and didn't make much of a...

    I like to wear a little makeup going out on a

    occasion,just not over done!! No black eyes , no cover up, just some mascara & some shine to my lips. I'm a natural beauty is what my g/f's say!! Makeup is bad for your skin, especially cover up 😉

    Maybe a little blush on my cheeks.

    I like to wear red lipstick but I also love black. I found a green lipstick once and wore that for a month.

    Just a touch of lip gloss is all there is on my

    face. ! I think naked faces have far more character :)

    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...

    My girlfriends and I have "Girls Night"

    once a week. Every week a favourite topic seems to be makeup; they all bring out bags full of it and all I have to show is Burt's Bees. Don't get me wrong, I wear make-up on special occasions, but only the basics: some foundation, mascara, and a light lip colour. In general I...

    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 think it's contradictory to wear makeup: "i

    feel good wearing makeup, I get confident by that" - what's the point to cover your face and be fake, as you actually are with makeup, if you can't feel that the real you is you I rather work with my self to feel that I accept my appearance, than go the easy way and put on...

    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.
