    Why would I paint my face?

    I like it the way it is. What you see. Is what you get.

    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.

    I love my natural beauty.

    💗 I don't have anything against people who wear it, though.

    I don't like the idea of people not seeing my

    actual face when they meet me, befriend me, date me, whatever. If people can look past my ugly face and befriend me, I know they aren't shallow.

    Its a difference between wearing makeup

    and letting it define you.I wear enough to enhance my looks but not so much to the point of being beyond recognition.I don't mind going without it, but I choose to wear it.

    I'm just too lazy and I find the whole concept

    of painting over your face before leaving the house ridiculous.

    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...

    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 wear mascara, because I literally look like a

    boy without it but I can't stand foundation and I just want to put all the girls that wear it in the bath and scrub them

    Once Gabriel Chanel told

    that a woman who doesn't use make-up is too confident. I guess I am 😄 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? 😆

    People always ask if I'm wearing mascara

    and I say "nope, my eyelashes really are that long!" It can actually be annoying to have long eyelashes sometimes, because they do not mix well with glasses :D

    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 used to wear make up,

    but I had the natural look going on. Just primer, moisturizer, foundation, powder and blush. I used neutrogena products so my skin never broke out, but with my job (I work on aircraft, have to run around outside on the flight line all day) it's so much of a hassle to make time...

    its like when you wear it too often,

    the day you don't people ask "are you tired"?because you defined your features like you are a caricature.

    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...

    Honestly? For me no one is really ugly.

    I literally can't see/view someone ugly. My friend find me weird for seeing one of our classmate as pretty when everybody doesn't. Although, for me you're ugly when you have an ugly personality and attitude. That person I was referring to, at first I found her pretty but then...

    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.

    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.

    I Refuse!

    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've never really been the type to put on

    I don't feel the need to wear makeup.

    Who cares if someone doesn't like what I look like, that's their problem. I might wear some mascara and a natural shade of eyeshadow for a fancy event or something but otherwise, I don't bother.

    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.

    I don't wear makeup for a few reasons.

    The first is I have sensitive skin and most makeup makes me breakout. I have found a brand that doesn't so far though. The second is I just don't like it and it takes too much time to do for me to even want to do something I don't like. The third is its a mask and not who I...

    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.

    When I Apply Makeup, It Feels Like I'm Painting My Face With Butter

    Hey, I'm not model material, but no amount of makeup is going to change that.  In highschool I wore tons of coverup, probably a layer a quarter inch thick.  The sh*ts expensive too, last time I bought coverup it was like 10 bucks!  I have a twin sister that will...

    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...
