I Prefer Natural Beauty Over Artificial Beauty

    I met someone the other day on EP.

    She and I have been speaking ever since for a few days, and she has helped me realize something in my life I don't think I could ever figure out without her. First I'd like to mention that this woman and I are nothing alike. She also lives on a different side of the country...

    I Thought It Was About Beauty Of The Universe

    When I saw the title of this group - I prefer Natural Beauty Over Artifical Beauty - I immediately thought I must join because the phrase could be mine! However I was thinking about the natural beauty of a forest, for example, against the artificial beauty of a park in the city...

    You Look Best When Your Relaxed

    Not really a story but something I used to tell my girlfriend before we broke up; "I always thought you looked more amazing in sweatpants and a tank top than anything else" She would blush and ask why and I'd say " Because all I can see is you, no makeup or expensive clothes, its...

    We are all beautiful in some way

    or another why try to cover it up or be something we are not? Those we are with are going to see us at our worst anyway. Less of a surprise when you are what you are in the beginning.

    I Shop at the Farmer's Market...

    I liked the title of this group, so I joined.  You know, I'm the kind of weirdo that sees those women in diet commercials - the kind with the before and after shots - and often think the woman looks just as hot - if not better in her before picture.  Not that I'm into...

    My Own Beauty..

    A straightener or curler does not touch my hair. 6 days out of 7 I wear no makeup. I keep my fingernails clipped evenly, clean and natural looking. Maybe this is why I am not beautiful, at all.

    Most definitely, you can't compete with natural

    beauty, most girls look better without there make up on than when they do with it on but fail to realise this.

    They Look So Fake And Its Not Attractive To Me

    i hate to see women doing so many things to themselves to look "beautiful." fake is not beautiful. overly tan and even orange colored skin is ridiculous looking. getting breast implants is like punching god in the face. and i say that even though i am completely not religious...

    Generally I would say I prefer 'natural beauty';

    but when I think about it, it gets a bit more complex. Does the difference between the two depend on the level of body modification? In other words, is natural about keeping your bodily state as close to what nature intended? So, for example, if a person braids their hair, would...

    Is Artificial Beauty Over-rated? Thank-you

    Okay, ladies.  For the record:  I'm not saying I don't appreciate a woman's efforts if she puts on a bit of make-up, or does something different with her hair.  It helps you feel good about yourselves, and that's great.  But, you know, I think it's pretty darn...

    I just got out of an organic bubblebath with

    lavender, tea tree oil, seaweed & sea salt. Wow! Do I feel better, lol! I put on some vodka (cuz vodka is a great skin toner) & cocoa butter lotion. Then gave my face a final cleansing with some organic rosewater & spritzed on a natural cucumber hydrating facial mist. I must say...

    and everyone looks the same in the end. Somebody needs to tell them how beautiful they are naturally. I'm trying.

    I have a million things to say about this,

    but I'll spare you the trouble and just give a bit of my opinion. (I'm only 14, so I haven't had too much experience with this sort of thing, but that doesn't mean I can't have a strong opinion on it.) I find it really, really stupid that some people change their bodies in such...

    The other day, the new girl came to work

    without make up on. She said she just woke up, was late and don't remind her that she wasn't wearing make up. I thought she looked better without it, as I think about most women. I didn't tell her that because she was new and I didn't want her to think I was hitting on her. :p

    True Beauty Is Natural

    And I'm not talking about people that we would all acknowledge as beautiful but those who are beautiful because they are natural...a spontaneous natural laugh...the playful twinkle in their eyes when they are teasing just a little bit...the way their lip curls up at the corner...

    Don't Dress Up Who You Are.

    Natural beauty is so much better than artificial beauty because it takes less effort and it feels better to be praised for it. I've had my fair share of insecurites, I've had acne when I was younger, I was even fat for about a year. I used to put on makeup and try to wear...

    Less Is Definitely More...

    I can't think of anything less attractive than thick plastered make-up and overdone plastic surgery.  I wear far less make-up now than I ever have - I wear my hair short - never use a hairdryer - and I prefer to be that way.  I take good care of myself, have never...

    There is something truly magic about a freshly

    cleaned face. During my work week, I'm in makeup, on my days off, my skin adores the break. When I eat healthy I'm rewarded with glowing skin. Many friends of mine choose Botox, lip enhancers, expensive clothing (more power to them). I shocked the Clinique rep one day when...

    Natural beauty is always best.

    As a woman I love being feminine but I don't feel the need to paint on layers of makeup or wear designer clothes to let my inner beauty shine through.
