I Prefer Natural Beauty Over Artificial Beauty

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,538 People

    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...

    Definitely...

    I admire women who can look beautiful with no make up on and their hair all natural. Although I think I am ugly, I have been told that I look pretty with no make up on and that others would kill to look like that without resorting to putting tons of eyeshadow/mascara/lipstick etc...

    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.

    Beauty Is Superficial.sorry.

    I joined this group because I hate it

    when a woman gets breast implants or plastic surgery or tans themself until they're bronze. I guess all these things can be okay in moderation and only under some circumstances. But who am I? To them, I suppose it makes sense somehow.

    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...

    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 have my own insecurities about myself, and trust me, they are numerous, but I can't fathom the amount of insecurity that go into changing one's own self. Fake boobs, botox, plastic surgery. Sure, they may change how you look on the outside, but they can't change your...

    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...

    I made a personal choice not to wear makeup.  One, I just didn't like it, but two, I wanted to showcase the natural beauty that was truly given to me.  I do understand that makeup is suppose to enhance that beauty, but I honestly believe it takes away from it. I truly...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
