    Only worn makeup twice in my life,

    and I disliked it so much. I don't think I would wear it to prom, if it makes me so uncomfortable.

    Honestly, I hate makeup.

    It feels like I'm wearing face-paint. My mom tries to get me to wear it because I look pretty, but I refuse to wear it.. Besides, the kind of "pretty" I am when I wear makeup, is the perfect kind of pretty.. I look like a doll. A life sized doll.

    Better Without It! (A Man'S Point Of View)

    For the ladies that have decided to go without make-up of at least to a very minimalist amount, I say, cudos to you for having the confidence and common sense to know that women don't need make-up to be beautiful. Every person has something beautiful about them, they just have...

    I Don't Wear Makeup, Either

    It started with my mother. She doesn't wear makeup. I guess girls mimic their moms, so I never gave it a second thought. I can remember going to school with a girl who wore foundation like a mask. Her face colour didn't match her neck colour. It looked very odd....I just...

    I know I'm young and everything,

    but I honestly feel I will never get into makeup. Most of my friends felt the same way a year or so ago, but have started wearing a little here, a little there, and now they wear it all over. It's not that they don't look good in it, but I prefer their actual faces. I can tell...

    How many days a week,

    if even? 1-2. I have no need. My smile says more than my make-up ever could, and I'd rather be known for my smiling, "plain" natural face than my "beautiful" make-upped face. Takes too much money and time anyway.

    Yea I don't wear makeup.

    It comes off way too easily when someone touches your skin. It's too much of a hassle. And truly everyone looks better without it. Oh yea and it's way too expensive.

    Once Gabriel Chanel told

    that a woman who doesn't use make-up is too confident. I guess I am ๐Ÿ˜„ I am so happy I don't spend one-two hours a day in front of the mirror applying mascara, eye-shadows, lipstick, etc. Why should I? ๐Ÿ˜†

    The Mask

    Wearing makeup was something that I couldn't get used to wearing. I always felt like it wasn't me. Like I was hiding behind some kind of mask. I used to use eye brow pencils but I hated the way my brows looked so that phase didn't last long. I also used to wear lipstick but I...

    I don't like to wear make up never have.

    But I do wear it if I have a date or a nice place to go otherwise I'm make up less. I can't stand girls that have to put on make up to go to the gym or to run to the store. Or girls that put so much on when they take it off the look like a different person.

    Why?

    I feel like it's just absolutely pointless to wear makeup. I mean, I'm comfortable enough with how I look, and even if I wasn't, why hide behind a mask of makeup? It's not real.. it's not attractive. Not to mention that I'm rather allergic to most makeup... that was the reason...

    I'm Ok Just The Way I Am

    God made me to look the way that I look. He is the best artist ever! Do I look like a model? Not at all! But, my looks are fine just the way that they are. I don't have to hide God's art.

    The only times I wore makeup is the times my

    sisters would force it on me. It's not that I don't like it, I just don't wanna mess with it. I think I'll try wearing it one of these days. And yet another time waster by yours truly.

    Makeup Is Not For Me

    I never liked makeup. The feeling of it, covering my skin and blocking my pores, is disgusting. I always touch my face and get makeup everywhere. The only times I've worn makeup was in plays and at a formal dance. I hated it, I took my makeup off at the dance twenty minutes in...

    I refuse to wear makeup. People have told me I need it (especially my mom) because I've always had a problem with acne. I find it offensive. The only beauty, to me, is natural beauty. If I can't be naturally beautiful then I guess I'm just not beautiful at all. But what beauty is...

    I have never been into makeup.

    The reason I'm against makeup is because it is making people into something they're not. I once had a friend tell me that it's fun because it's like painting a mask on your face. And that has always stuck with me! If you're putting a mask on your face then you're not being your...
