    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...

    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...

    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 like to wear make-up to enhance my appearance.

    Otherwise I'd be such a plain Jane. At the very least I use a moisturizer, followed by Avon's MagiX skin perfector. It helps smooth out my complexion, and keeps my face from looking shiny. It used to come in a few shades, which I loved, but now they only have the colorless. It...

    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

    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 wearing make up

    but not to impress anyone, just to make my self feel better and also I hate when people judge others for wearing it.. why does it affect you that others are even wearing makeup? It's their face & body, not yours! Omg some people really need to get over themselves.

    I wear like a ton. We aren't allowed to wear

    makeup until we are 17, so I am the only one who does. One a day basis I wear foundation, concealer, face powder, blush, eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, mascara, and lip stick (or gloss (or stain)) Edit: I forgot eye shadow
