    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...

    Not because I'm ugly

    but because it enhances the beauty I already have. I mean Makeup is expensive and I like food, clothes, electricity, and running water

    Unless I'm going to the gym,

    I always put on my make-up. Hubby deserves to have a woman who takes pride in her appearance. I have too many mommy friends who completely give up on how they present themselves - no make-up, wearing PJ pants to pick up the kids from school - and then complain that there's no...

    Another Masterpiece.

    Like most women I have my everyday look. The right foundation, liner, shadow, mascara and lipstick. Its the same routine everyday.Β  But when its time to get that formal glamour look, the work begins. The everyday look takes about 20 minutes, its a Β routine run thru. The formal...

    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

    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...

    makeup I don't need it" ok ??? I get it . I wear makeup bc I have no self confidence and it makes me feel pretty . I'm glad you aren't wearing makeup good for you but you don't have to rub it in seriously

    I just started wearing make up more.

    I love the way it adds color to my face. I think of it as a definite art form. (I've been collecting hobbies and this is one of them.) I also like the attention! I get more compliments when I make effort to look nice, and I appreciate that.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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.

    Because its part of my job to look pleasant

    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...
