I Wear Make Up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,400 People

    I use to wake up every day,

    take a shower and after spend at least an hour putting on make up alone. I believe for a long time that I was ugly without it and I spend so much money on it that it's bonkers. Now I don't put it on every day because I'm too depress to even do it most if the time but i still...

    I wear makeup, and I'm a guy.

    It just makes me feel better. It's a security thing. I don't let many people see me without it.

    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...

    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 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...

    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.

    I put on eyeliner, mascara

    and lip gloss everyday. I don't put anything on my face anymore because it makes me break out. I like wearing make up because I think it makes me look my best.

    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.

    Some girls wear makeup to hide behind it,

    some only on special occasions when they need to feel their most beautiful, and others simply to look "naturally" attractive by enhancing their facial features. While everyone has their reason, I too have mine. I am a make up junkie. I don't wear makeup to hide my face, and I...

    Because its part of my job to look pleasant

    infront of my colleagues. Besides it makes me happy putting it on just to please myself. Although i dont know really how blend colors so mostly my make up is just plain.

    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 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...

    Can't Live Without Make Up!

    I'm addicted to make up, I think I'm ugly if I don't wear it. I know it sounds stupid, because it shouldn't change you that much, but I kinda feel naked when I'm not wearing any. My father is always critcising me saying I look ridiculous and that I shouldn't care if I have make...

    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...
