    Hate It, Hate It, Hate It.

    It smells. It's expensive. It's nasty. And you know, I think I may be one of the few people on this Earth that find a women with make-up unattractive! When I had a therapist (not a specialist, didn't help), I told him that I didn't like make-up; I found it deceptive. You are...

    I grew up not wearing make up and got use to it. I will say i always wanted to wear it and look like one of those models but I see it like this… one day a guy is going to love me the way I look natural! And not love me for having tons of make up on my face. I look at myself and...

    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...

    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.

    for a special occasion or something, I honestly feel uglier. I like just being me- the real me. I'm happiest with my fresh face and allowing my skin to breathe. I feel beautiful after just rubbing some natural moisturizer on my face and heading out to wherever I need to be. I...

    I'm 15, and when I was 12-13 I got a reputation

    as a tomboy who didn't like anything girly..now I'd kind of like to change it and wear makeup, as i'm way more girly now, but I think people would just keep saying "WOAH YOU'RE WEARING MAKEUP". Also i'm bad at doing makeup so..

    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.

    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...

    Hello you brilliant people. It's nice to know that there are women out there that don't like wearing make-up. I am female, but I can't tell if a woman has make-up on or not. If they do, then it's just too natural for me to tell, but every other woman can tell from a mile away so...

    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...

    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 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.

    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 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...
