When i wake up i put on my make up, becuase im ugly without it?

Okay okay okay, so I don't mean that literally. But today I had a weird experience I wanted to share with you, to see if I am alone. I started back school today (college) and I was sitting in class and kept noticing this one guy looking back at me.  I thought about it later and i was wondering was he looking at the girl next to me? Then without a pause i thought well he couldn't have been looking at me (at least not in a good way) i don't have any make up on.

 

I told the girls at work, and they all had similar story's. Where they figured because they had no make up on that a guy looking at them wasn't looking in a positive way.

 

I love make up and always will, I couldn't imagine my life without it. But I wonder do you think this way ever? like embarrassed or uncomfortable if you do not have make up on? Is there a downside to make up?

I usually go makeup free because I want people to see the real me, not a mask. on a special occasion I will wear makeup but I don't go ALL the way like foundation, brows, lips , eyes , a little eyeliner and concealer will do. Smiley Very Happy

see i don't think make up is a mask nor more than hair dye or stylish clothes... I see it as an enhancer, if its done right

I usually wear at least a little concealer since I have post-acne marks, and I like to fill in my eyebrows since they are pretty sparse. But honestly I love to wear makeup just because I enjoy it, the same way wearing a bright color or a fabulous pair of shoes just adds an extra spring to your step. I used to wear makeup when I was younger just to feel more confident, but I've found as I've grown up makeup has really helped me really appreciate my appearance. After spending time looking at myself and really getting to understand my face and see everything beautiful in it.

I do find as i get older i need less and less makeup.

I would love to know what some of you none make up wearer skin is like? See i have acne, 25 and i still have it! So when i wear make up i open myself up to looking prettier to people who would never even look twice at me, because unfortunately some people just see your acne, no matter that i have full lips or nice shaped eyes, they just my acne. But once i put the concealer and foundation on than its a whole new face... 

Basically i know for a fact if i had clear skin, (because there has been points where i had clear skin) I would feel more confident without makeup.

37 year old skin, ice pick acne scarring on my cheeks and a bit on my forehead, laugh lines and the dreaded 11 between my eyebrows,  lol. I do wear concealer on my dark marks but other than that I rely on my skin care regimen to give me confidence more so than wearing a lot of makeup. Perhaps because I feel like I am putting in the effort to be healthy and take care of my skin as best as I can I feel like I can grin and bare it! I honestly believe that my self-perceived imperfections go unnoticed by others, that the only one scrutinizing me is me.

could you share your skin routine that works well?

Re: When i wake up i put on my make up, becuase im ugly without it?

In the morning I wash my fash in the shower with whatever cleanser strikes my fancy (I have Soap and Glory 3-in-1, Lancôme Creme Radiance, Origins Zero Oil Dep Pore Cleanser, Origins Modern Friction, and Estée Lauder Perfectly Clean). Then I use Lancôme Tonique Radiance, apply Lancôme Genifique Serum, Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector, Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, and finish up with Elizabeth Arden Daywear Moisturizer with SPF and Genifique eye cream. I know it sounds like a lot, but it doesn't take a lot of time and I aply a layer theN floss, another layer as I brush my teeth, and final layers after I put on my shirt. 

My evening routine is simpler. Again wash with whatever cleanser I feel is appropriate depending on how grimy my day was, then I apply Estée Lauder Advanced Night Reiar serum, Murad Dark Spot Corrector, and finally Lancôme Genifique night cream and Estée Lauder Night Repair Eye Cream along with FoodLash on my upper and lower lashes. I don't know if the creams are miracle workers or if the fact that I massage my face gently at least twice a day is helping blood flow. But I look decent and I feel happy when I walk out the door with Bobbi Brown spot corrector if and when needed.

I went most of my life wearing makeup for only rare, special occasions, and I have trouble getting people to believe I'm 34.  I've actually almost been thrown out of a bar because the bartender was convinced I was using a fake ID!  I get pretty red in the face when I'm flustered or even slightly overheated, so it's not like makeup wouldn't have helped me even things out; it's part of the main reason I'm starting to wear it now.  I'm just pretty sure that skipping makeup for the first thirty-odd years of my life (and avoiding the sun like the plague!) has left my skin a lot better off.

Re: When i wake up i put on my make up, becuase im ugly without it?

It's not really about me feeling like I need it. If anything the only thing I feel like I need is some mascara since my eyelashes are white/blonde and it makes it look like I have none. Half the reason I wear it is, even with it on, I can still get mistaken six years younger than I actually am. My face has really never changed since elementary school. Plus my body weight is probably less than a middle schoolers. Despite having curves and being tall my boyfriend can fit both his hands around my entire waist. I figured I'd grow up and still be thin just not quite this thin.
