    Permanent Makeup

    I've had my eyes outlined in a black line tattooed forever, with a thin outline around my brows so that they look drawn on, and my lips are outlined in a dark red color with a rose shade filled in. All this so that I will never be able to look or appear as a male again. http...

    I see it as a self expression,

    it's a hobby and a passion of mine,not a matter of needing it to cover up the way I look! I'm not paying 35$ for a lipstick to attract arrogant judgemental men so don't flatter yourself

    My favorite response ever to "Girls wear makeup

    to impress men." Lol, you think I have all 3 Naked palettes to impress someone who can't tell Half Baked from Chopper?

    I wear a full face of makeup almost daily.

    And always, there has to be someone that has a problem with that despite it being my own face and my own property, yet that still somehow annoys people out even if it doesn't hurt anyone. What's your problem? Even the people that compliment me on it usually end up saying "don't...

    I have been experimenting with my "jane girl"

    fashion at work. I teach private music lessons and I want to make sure the kids are comfortable, so I've broken them in slowly. I started with chunky heels under slacks, feminine tops, and a purse, and I've gone as far as velvet leggings, pink scarves and make-up. My boss...

    Some people paint on canvases;

    for me, my skin is my canvas. I respect other people's choice to avoid makeup, but for me, makeup is my art. It does give me a confidence boost, but I see nothing wrong with feeling good about enhancing my features with my hand and some pigments. It's a skill I've practiced for...

    Doing Without

    Isn't it that weird that I loath the idea of makeup? It makes my face feel dirty, like there’s chunk on it that I have to wash off. I just don’t feel me with makeup, and everyone thinks it’s so strange that I don’t wear it. Honestly, I don&rsquo...

    I'm a completely heterosexual guy.

    Even a bit homophobic, and I usually wear make up. I like it because it makes me look better. Make up for guys is very different. People can't really notice that you have it. I made the mistake of telling this to some of my ex friends and to some people. I was immediately...

    I Love When My Make-up Is Done Correctly

    I was a ten year old boy when I discovered make-up.  I watched as my mom, aunts and older cousins applied their cosmetics. I experimented as much as possible. I would wear mascara to school. It got so I wore make-up whenever I wanted. I have been wearing make-up...

    The only make up I wear is a little bit of eye

    shadow and clear lip gloss. I tried different shades of eye shadow but I think it makes me look freaky, so I don't wear it. When I'm in the mood, I'll play around with mascara, but that doesn't happen very often.

    I don't wear a lot of make up though.

    I don't wear make up

    but I do need concealer to cover up my dark spots that are getting a bit lighter. I rather use home made ingredients to make my make up because I don't want to clog my pores with toxins. I don't like caking on make up. If I am going to be wearing make up, I wear the make up...

    A lot of people think makeup is "Hiding the

    Real You" by masking your flaws I disagree. Makeup is a way to enhance your natural features and have more self confidence, yes, it does this by covering up pimples, and imperfections but it didn't start off that way. Face paint was used in spiritual celebrations, when going...

    I wear makeup sometimes.

    I don't wear it as often as I used to. Its fun to put on and try new things with but sometimes I feel like I look better without it.

    Makeup

    First the lotion, then the foundation. Next the brush with concealer to smooth it all together, and then the eyeliner, eyeshadows, and mascara. After that the blush (my favorite part), the lipliner, and then the lip gloss with a tint of color to top it off. I...

    I am a "T" girl and have been wearing make up when ever I could since I was about 14. I would use my sisters make up and practice applying it. Over the years I have learned how to do most everything that can b done with make up. I feel so feminine when I get all dolled up! I have...

    I've never been one for a lot of makeup

    but I certainly think a small amount, carefully applied enhances rather than masks a girl's natural beauty. I personally only ever use eyeliners, mascaras and skin tone lipsticks but everyone's tastes are different
