    things on my face. I'm fine with how I look.

    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...

    I loath make up and so should you!

    Hours on end you put crayons on your face when you don't even need it...you're perfect but your insecurities weigh over your judgment. style network tells you all about the perfect tips but they never tell you that you are gorgeous without anything but however there is this new...

    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 😉

    If you have acne, DON'T ever cover it up with

    makeup. It's going to clog your pores and your acne will get worse because your pores cannot breathe. I know it's gross to walk around with a face full of acne, but would you rather have a clean acne free face or the opposite?

    Saw an acquaintance today

    and he commented on the fact that I wasn't wearing make-up. The 2 times he's seen me I was wearing eyeliner. He likes me better fresh and make-up free

    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 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

    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 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...

    She loves me either way

    and she's all I need to impress. Sometimes it's okay, like if you've got time or your career demands it, but if I don't have to, screw it.

    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.

    When I wear it, I do enjoy myself.

    I admire how some people are so creative with making up their face, whether it is a delicate or dramatic application.

    I never wear makeup. I just don't "get it.

    " It takes a lot of time to put on, and it can royally mess up your skin if you already have skin issues. You can't touch your face throughout the day, or get it wet, and (in the case of lipstick) you can't luck your lips, drink alot, or eat comfortably. I feel so...

    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...

    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 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 didn't learn how to use makeup

    until I turned 15. Now I only use it like once every 2 or 3 months, when there's a school dance or something.

    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.
