What's the main reason you wear makeup?

I was just thinking about the main reasons I wear makeup-to cover my undereye circles and occasional pimples. And I thought I should post this asking you gals the masin reason you wear makeup. Is it to cover, make you feel better, or do you just like using it, or do you have a different reason? Smiley Happy

I wear it to even out my skintone and cover some slight acne marks I have.

Re: What's the main reason you wear makeup?

I love color.  The more the better.  I think it's a great way to express yourself, in addition to how you dress and what you accessorize with, such as purses.  I wear the makeup for myself, because I love to experiment.  I'm lucky enough to get away with just wearing tinted moisturizer, but I also wear makeup to give myself a boost of self-confidence when I need it and to feel sexy.  It's gratifying to know that my husband loves me more without makeup, but he also loves knowing that I wear the makeup for myself and not him (although sometimes I will wear certain products, like red lipstick, especially for him).  He just doesn't like the cost!

After reading waterbaby's post, I realized that I should have added another reason I wear makeup is because I love color, too, and doing my eye makeup is kind of like a form of art for me, ha ha.  My very favorite part of doing my makeup is applying eye makeup.  I love to wear on a daily basis at least 4 colors of shadow, a mixture of two colorful eyeliners and lots of mascara.  I think it's fun to mix different shadow colors and liners.  I've had a lot of people say to me, "I love your eyeshadow, it looks like a rainbow" ha ha.

I wear make up because I love to! I  think it is so much fun! I too love colors and love painting as you can tell by the art I helped design on my back. And this way I get to make shapes and add the depthness not to mention color to my face.  When I was young I did wear it to look older, I did did have to get into the clubs and just had to "look" the part also. 

Also I was so pale when I was a little younger and my mom had to take me to the doc she wouldn't  let me put on any makeup b/c then I wouldn't look sick!  LOL  She'd say they  thought she was nuts to already. And at least without the makeup on they could tell I was pale with circles too! LOL!! Now I wear makeup because it is still so fun AND makes me look  younger  too _YAY!

Just for the fun of it. It brings colors into my world and therefore, it makes me happySmiley Happy

Re: What's the main reason you wear makeup?

Rosacea and skin cancer. Getting SPF on my face that's not irritating chemicals and not white is what got me started with more than eye makeup and lip color; now I need to cover up flaming red cheeks and broken capillaries from rosacea, too.

Re: What's the main reason you wear makeup?

Beauty is art and therefore, makeup is love. Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's the main reason you wear makeup?

Because I saw a picture of what I look like with no make-up on and it burned into my brain and I refuse to scare people.

Re: What's the main reason you wear makeup?

Oh, novemberjuliet! I doubt you wouls scare people without makeup! LOL!

For me it's a hobby. It let's me be artistic and creative without the time commitment of my previous artwork, which was mixed media collage!

Re: What's the main reason you wear makeup?

To cover undereye circles and blemishes. I like having a polished look.
