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?

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

Yes, it was like she was trying to make me feel bad for looking the way I want.  I'm sorry I can create a perfect winged liner in only a few mintues.  Maybe you should practice more!  That's what I would have liked to say to her!

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

She was just trying to make you feel bad because you looked better than her. Alot of people say stuff  mean stuff to people to make themselves feel better.

 

Those are the people you give that snap in the air and walk off.

You're absolutely right! Gosh, I hate girls like that. Instead of just learning the techniques or even ask how to do it like yours, they give smart a s s remarks and act like they are better. Pshhh.

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

Oh I know and it's evident what their problem is. I would rather ask about some ones makeup and give them that compliment and pick up a new technique or product that I'm not aware of it's alot more fun like that.Smiley Happy  Thanks MermaidBarbie glad I'm not the only one that sees it that way.Heart

 

Ok I'm seriously getting carried away with these little red hearts.Smiley Very Happy but it's @kimchikween's fault.

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

Yup! It definitely is more fun like that. Woman Happy Heart

i always wore makeup in high school and would get that every once in a while. I actually had people tell me similar things. 

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

I have always felt uncomfortable without makeup. The one thing that I absolutely cannot go out without wearing is eyeliner. Going out without eyeliner feels to me, like going to church in my underwear.

 

Sorry, I know it seems shallow, but I just hate my eyes without eyeliner.

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

I have redness in my cheeks all the time, and I am not too happy about it. Wear foundation everyday to hide it and perfect my skin. My honey does not mind it and thinks its cute that I am so self conscious about it, which makes me feel a little better. I have started to be a little more comfortable with wearing just a teeny bit of powder and not a liquid foundation, but it has taken me a while.

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

for me it seems to be a self assurance cycle, my attitude/self confidence and how much I believe it 250%... and that is reinforced when you open your mouth, body language/stance, look in your eye, educated language you use...all this can surprise/shock the other party...people are still falling into the trap of judging people on sight.

 

It seems as you get older there gets a point where certain things in life take priority over make up, how valuable/spendable your time/efforts are...if you want to play the game and why... but even that changes with the situation and your self beliefs. Your facial features and skin will change in time too.

 

I also found that a good self tanner on your face cuts down 85% of make up needs when you contour apply it to dye certain areas darker...a excellent hair style that enhances your features and cut is worth it.

 

Spouting all this I admit I never leave the house without earrings on nor NARS lipstick...more importantly you do what makes you feel better and even that will change over time.

 

PS) next time do a tiny wave to the guy gawking, you might be surprised on what happens.

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

Btw, yesterday after work, my boyfriend invited me over to his house for a bbq with his family and to go swimming in his pool. I had eyeshadow, mascara, my brows filled and a bit of the laura mercier smooth finish powder foundation to cover my redness in my cheeks (YAY! I am overcoming my fear). It was so hot outside, so I decided to shower and take all that off, since I was going swimming. I didn't wanna look ridiculous. So I opted for just wearing my Kat Von D Eye Primer, to cover up my veins on my lids, I curled my lashes and put a bit of powder on again and called it a day. I felt soooo weird! My boyfriend was like, "Honey, you look great!" I couldn't believe it. So we got to talking about makeup and what not and he said that he thinks I look great with or without it. Awww. So he is slowly but surely, helping me feel confident in my own skin.

thank you kissxmakeup for sharing! Im so glad you are beginning to become more confident without makeup, with the help of your man. great post!

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

I generally trend towards a natural look or forgo makeup altogether aside from maybe a gloss unless I am going out on the town so I feel very comfortable without make up on.  I am lucky enough to have decent skin and quite frankly, sometimes I am just too lazy to deal with the makeup routine.  I think I may be more inclined to feel somewhat uncomfortable when I am wearing more makeup (although that doesn't stop me).  One of the few times I really glammed myself up with a smoky eye and bodycon dress I had one male friend almost not recognize me and then another tell me he preferred "jeans and t-shirt" me.  I wasn't too sure how to take either of those comments...haha.

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

i think maybe sometimes men prefer plane jane girls because they are more "down to earth" and less intimidating. Although i thinks its very interesting that men say they like women more "natural" but they surely cant help stare when rihanna or megan fox is on the tv, in FULL MAKEUP...

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

Sadly, I feel like this ALL the time. I feel so strange, and find it hard to believe it when men tell me I look better without make up. I pretty much have myself convinced it's that they don't know what they're talking about. I guess there is a down side to an extent, but HEY I feel like my love for make up is a part of who I am. Everyone has a vice.

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

Hey if your love make up who cares what they say huh? men don't wear makeup usually so they don't understand how awesome it is!
