I don't wear makeup. I think it makes me look fake. I believe in a natural look. I think it's better not to wear makeup. Do you wear makeup? If yes then how much? Do you think it's better to look natural?

Yes I do wear makeup. I try to always wear it when I leave the house but it doesn't always work out that way. I like the way it makes me look, it enhances my eyes and lips. I don't cake it on or anything but I wear enough to enhance my features.

You really don't look bad without makeup. It does kind of look like you have light eyelashes though. Mascara is probably your favorate peice of makeup. I was blessed with thick dark eyelashes so I don't really have to worry.

I rarely wear make up, giggles. Just a dab of powder and a hint of lipstick will do. I felt yucky with lots of makeup. I opt for the natural look rather than be seen like a clown. :)

Oh holy no! I am a guy so of course I don't wear makeup. But I guess this question is for the ladies, right? Hey Giggles, why are you being so sexist? :P Anyway I think ladies look beautiful enough with their natural beauty - makeup or not. ^^

Thank you!!! I wasn't really trying to make the question for women. I guess I should have made the question something more like "Do you think makeup makes a person look better?" or something like that. I'll think of something for the men to answer to make up for it lol.

Like i've just said in the other discussion you posted about makeup, i rarely wear makeup. it's just not me. i wear a simple, discreet makeup only when i go to parties or visits where i have to adopt a look that seems a little more mature, i don't know... it's funny that my boyfriend got used to me not wearing any makeup and whenever i do wear some, he notices it from the very first moment.lol.

Mine does that too. He always knows when I have makeup on even if it's just a little bit. I usually only wear mascara or eyeliner at the most.

I like to wear a light make up. It doesn't look fake. It enhances natural beauty. Does your avatar have your natural look? LOL

I vary how much I wear depending on what I am doing that day and how tired it will make me to pull my eyes open to do so. I DONT always wear makeup but most of the time I do. Foundation, powder, blush, eyeshadow and sometimes eye liner & mascara. Plus glitter to the eyes and cheeks. I have been wearing makeup since I was in the 7th grade. I started with blush & powder. Funny I started makeup and shaving the same time :) part of growing up. I never saw it as unnatural. But thats just ME :))

I do wear make-up whenever I go out of the house. Anyways it's very light and natural-looking - just loose powder foundation over my moisturizer with sunscreen, light blush and lip color. That's it. I just curl my lashes and don't bother putting on mascara or eye shadow.

I wear make-up everyday. My basic make-up is face powder, lipstick and eyelner. I started wearing make up at the age of 21 and it's still right that you don't wear make-up since you are still very young. You still have the advantage of fresh and clear skin. Putting on make-up that doesn't make you look fake is a skill also. You have to put the make up that would just blend in and seems natural. Make-up serves to enhance your features and not overshadow them.

I completely agree but you already knew that. i don't understand why people think they need to wear so much makeup to be "pretty". I don't think its really "pretty" if you need makeup to achieve it.

i do. i dont feel like it makes me look fake unless i put a whole bunch of it on. i like to keep it looking natural. i only use it to try to enhance my favorite features, my eyes. other than liner, shadow and sometimes mascara, i wont use foundation or powders on my face. i have seen women who dont know how to apply it correctly, and OH MY GOODNESS!!! that is not a pretty sight.lol. it can look like a heavy mask. and since i dont know how to use the stuff, i would probably end up looking like a scary sight also. i dont do it on a daily basis though, just on days that i am going to go out, or days that i want to feel good about myself.

Yup I do, that is only when I go out of the house, for a party or for work. It's never heavy so I could say its almost the natural look. I don't believe in loading my face with artificial stuff, my make up consists of a good moisturizer, light foundation (occasional), oil-free powder, lipstick or lip gloss ..that's it!

i do, but not much. i apply lipstick depending on the place. am quite conscious about looking normal rather than looking unusual and colorful(awful) with make up. i use it as a touch up. but yes i have do put much make up when i perform any dance or cultural programs. at that time i have to apply thorough make up to be actually seen in the stage(even when the DJ turns off the light :) )but i buy all kinds of make up articles. it's because i like collecting it so that i use appropriate things when required..

I don't wear makeup. I think it makes me look fake and look like a clown. I try to keep a tan all year long so that helps alot. The only makeup I ever wear is mascara and even that isn't very often. I remeber when I was growing up, I was such a tomboy also and that didn't help much either about wearing makeup. My sisters always wanted to put makep on me all of the time. They said I look good with makeup. I still disagreee with them.

Oh I do makeup amd I have always had them on [except staying at home]. It's just like a hobby to me. I believe it's a general perception that having makeup on it's fake. But I do treat it as a priviledge of girls and I love it that I can play different colors and looks on my face. I think if one uses the right colors and the right products, the makeup can look totally natural yet enhance the lovely features of one's face. I have full makeup and I guess I have been practicing over the years not to look like a makeup freak out in the street LOL. Foundation, eyeshadows, mascara, eyeliner, lipstick, blush - I put them all on. Hahaha, it's just so much fun. Anyway, I prefer slightly sophisticated look to totally natural look.
