I Dont Wear Makeup Unless I'm Going Somewhere

    Looking Presentable All the Time, No Way!

    If I am only around family and friends I find no need to look put together, for they have seen me in tears and diapers. I figure a non makeup clad face has to be a much better look than the later two.

    Even as a little girl I use to watch my mom,

    both of my grandmothers, aunts & older cousins put on makeup I hate it. Lol. You can say I'm a natural beauty outside & in. I believe that unless your going out somewhere very special you shouldn't have to wear it. Don't get me wrong if my boyfriend is taking out to eat & stuff...

    Losing The Makeup Habit - How Do You Feel Pretty Without It?

    I've had a long-standing difficulty tolerating makeup of any kind, including eye colors, foundation and powder.  Almost all cosmetics seems to cause me to itch, break out, roughen my skin or cause a burning sensation.   Last summer, I took a trip to Oregon and discovered a...

    Nope

    I like to allow my skin to breathe the days in which I am not at work or going out somewhere.   Whilst I would never wish the outside world to endure me without make-up, within the confines of my apartment, I very much tend to go around with moisturiser and lip balm the...

    Razzle Dazzle Rock!

    I like to turn heads when I go out to clubs and hear my friends say, "Wow, you look awesome!" I go all goth glitterati, lots of drama with a splash of rainbow.

    Nope. and I'm So Happy.

    I used to wear make-up every single day. Now, i only wear it if i'm going out somewhere to meet someone or something. And it feels so good. I owe it all to my boyfriend who has made me feel so much happier in my own skin than i ever thought i could be. I'm truly...

    It's Too Much Work.

    I have to really scrub my face after wearing makeup because it breaks out if I skip washing, even just once. So the only time I wear makeup is if I'm going out.  Then I refuse to leave without it.

    Why Would I?

    Even though it only takes me about 20 minutes to do my hair and makeup, I don't see the reason to if I'm not going anywhere. First off, I prefer to let my skin breathe because it ends to be on the sensitive side. Secondly, my foundation is ridiculously expensive and I'd rather...
