Scared of boys seeing me without makeup Watch

    With my usual makeup (winged liner, natural eyeshadow, mascara + skin stuff) I'm a 9/10.
    With a more toned down natural version I'm a 7.5-8/10.
    However, with no makeup I'm genuinely like a 5.

    I have the kind of face that takes makeup really well but without it, I'm a really blank canvas. My lips, brows, nose and general facial structure don't change. But without eye makeup my eyes look so dull. + I have really dark circles so I look ill without concealer.

    I get a lot of attention and compliments from guys and girls and people know me as being pretty but it scares me because without makeup I look so rubbish. Especially if I add my glasses to the equation (I normally wear contacts). However, if I know I can look like a 9 then obviously if i'm going out, I'm gonna choose being a 9 over a 5.

    I know it sounds like I wear a lot of makeup, but even with a natural amount I look fine. It's just the moment my eye makeup comes off, I look like a completely different person.
    Been in a short 6 month relationship and he never saw me without makeup. He'd see me the morning after when half of it has come off but it would still be enough for me to look decent.
    I'm just scared of getting into my next relationship and the moment they see me without makeup and suddenly they're not attracted to me anymore.

    Has anyone got any advice of how to handle this? If you've been in a similar position before or when you saw your gf without makeup.

    Honey, I'm sure you look beautiful without makeup. And I'm being serious.

    - Makeup doesn't actually hide everything about a person's face.
    - Males apparently prefer women without makeup.
    - Being without makeup is seen as a sign of confidence and feeling comfortable.
    - Everybody already knows that a person wearing makeup looks different without it.

    Don't stress, I'm sure no guy would leave you after seeing your natural beauty!

    Once someone is hooked, they tend not to care what you look like. They just like the warm fuzzy feeling you put in their tummy.

    Hence, you see a lot of people turn fat and repulsive after a year or two in a relationship, as they no longer have to make an effort.

    Why do you car every what boys think? Learn to be happy and confident in your own skin.

    We always look at ourselves much more critically than what others do. Besides, when someone wants to be with you they don't care if you have dark circles or your skin isn't totally perfect. In a relationship people find those little imperfections endearing in my experience :dontknow:
