I Dont Wear Makeup Unless I'm Going Somewhere

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 97 People

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.
