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?

Oh and a side note just in case. I don't actually think I'm ugly, and I'm not looking for sympathy I was just curious if anyone else ever felt the same way me and my friends feel.

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

Ah that happened to me. I had on some makeup. Just a little bit of auburn mascara and some tinted moisturizer. I was dressed all sloppy. I had on a frumpy black fleece jacket, and cargo pants. My hair was brushed but that was about it. I was in the store early in the morning and a random guy I had never met came up and said "I don't mean to embarrass you, but you're the prettiest girl I've ever seen". I said thank you and turned away. Mainly because my first thought was to be like a bunny and hide in my rabbit hole. I've gotten hit on/complimented at the beach when I'm not wearing any makeup as well. However I chock that up to being in a bikini. 

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

yah, its like are your really hitting on me, now?

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

I've come to terms that men won't ask you out if you look overly confident or nice. They fear rejection. It's easier to target a girl with low self confidence. I guess the lesson there is if your looking for a boyfriend more men will approach you that way(rather than just look). However the quality of what you get also comes into question. If they don't think they measure up to you at your best what does it say they think about themselves. I find something troubling about men who instinctively target weak links. They themselves lack confidence or they want an easy mark. In conclusion ask the guys out instead. It gives you more control over the situation. 

 

Oh, another thing is if you get asked out frequently and reject them, guys will stop asking you out. Mainly because they think they'll fail before they even try.

so glad i have a boyfriend and don't have to play the single game. 

its all so complicated to be single. funny thing though my boyfriend prefers me to be fresh faced no make up at all. 

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

I didn't have to play the game long but I learned the rules quick. My boyfriend says he doesn't care. He doesn't really seem to think there's a big difference either way and he likes me both ways. I do know he likes dark eye makeup on me though. I try to wear it some even though I worry about appearing goth. He hates all red lipstick though (something several guys have told me) they think it looks strange on everybody. 

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

I am most often asked out in public right after I work out. No makeup, sweaty, altogether kind of gross.

I talked to several guys about this phenomenon, and there seem to be 2 schools of thought:

1. I'm sweaty and disheveled, and that reminds men of sex.

2. I clearly have low self-confidence, so I'll probably be flattered and say yes.

Thank goodness I'm taken. If this is what random guys are thinking when they look at women, I'm slightly disgusted.

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

good points, basically both reasons would be bad...

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

Plus you are probably wearing tight clothing. Yoga pants maybe? Every guy I know says it's basically like seeing the woman naked. 

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

When I have makeup on I feel more in control of my presentation of self and thus more confident. And I think that people are attracted to confidence.

 

When I'm not wearing makeup I don't feel bad, I just also don't feel that extra jolt of good that comes with the makeup.

 

For me, the downside of getting into makeup, especially so late in life, is that there are a thousand subtle things about my face that I never noticed before but now I see them as flaws. I don't really know how to undo that though and at least for now the benefit of the control/confidence outweighs the new insecurities.  If that changes at any point I will probably take a break from makeup.

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

definitely the best part about wearing make up is the confidence it brings!

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

Wow everything you said resonates with me so well. I like the confidence it brings. But then again I have been over scrutinizing myself now, noticing little lines, large pores, etc etc. glad I have someone around to put it into words!

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

I can't step out of my house without makeup on! It's mostly because of the hyper-pigmentation i have. If it would fade i would feel confident enough to go outside in a light coverage BB cream or tinted moisturizer. But i need at least Medium to Full coverage! 

I don't think there are too many downsides to makeup, Just being careful you don't over do it and everyone knows you have a ton of makeup on. I like to keep my makeup looking Natural, just enhancing, and sometimes a Bold lip.

 

Also on a side note, I used to feel really uncomfortable when i didn't do my hair. My hair has a slight wave, a little frizz But i always felt weird when didn't Straighten/ Curl it. But now i go out every day with it Natural. 

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

did you try the algenist 10 days thing? my blotchy redness is looking really good since i did that! and i have used the truth serum the last two days since stopping that... my face *almost* looks normal! there's a quarter sized spot on my lower left cheek that's always a bit darker than the rest, and even that is barely noticeable right now Smiley Happy and none of it aggrivated my rosacea or irritated my skin! 

 

i also used the boscia white mask the other night and noticed a HUGE difference as well Smiley Happy i haaaaaated applying it, it was like thick sticky paint, got all over my hands and in my hair, hard to control. as i was applying it i kept telling myself that this one was definitely off of the list of "to buy", but the results were worth it! the charcoal one is so much easier to apply, and also didn't irritate my skin. i liked that one a lot Smiley Happy cleared my pores awesomely! 

 

i can't say 100% that it was any one of these things, or a combination of them because i've been using a lot of my samples to clear out my overflowing inventory. but my coloring has never looked so even Smiley Happy 

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

I have hyper-pigmentation from past Acne, So those spots are there to stay for a while. I've tried the OH Serum, I love it, But takes time and isn't the most effective for dark spots. I don't like the Boscia White Mask, I have it and i hurts so much to peel off, And i don't see a difference. I've been using a ton of different things and they are working, it just takes time. But i don't mind putting on makeup, i love my Makeup routine in the mornings. I just hope the spots go away soon! But I appreciate your recommendations! Smiley Very Happy

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

i know there are some things out there for spots like that, but i have never tried any. hope you find something soon that helps cover them up! 

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

I dont have hyper pigmentation but i do have acne and im 25! I remember when i first started getting acne when i was 13 i was like its okay ill grow out of it, BAM 12 years later i still wish and hope ill "grow out of it". At this point im thinking of trying accutane. 

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

I remember in high school I use to wake up an hour early just to do my makeup and stuff because I needed my "Face" on. Thank goodness I don't think that way any more lol. I usually go makeup free most days but I do feel like I look better: more rested, brighter, etc. with some makeup on. And every now and then when I meet a cute guy I'll be like I wish I had on some makeup! Lol

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

i remember when i was younger one of miy older cousins used to tell me to always wear atleast lipstick because you never know who your going to see in public. Ill tell you what too there has been a couple of times i was like darn it i wish i would have took her advice. 

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

If I took that advice I would look like a clown everyday. I have seriously given up on lipstick for now. It just looks so off on me. At first I thought it was color now I just think it's my face. I feel like I look like a kid that got into her moms makeup.
